Church of Scientology Settles Lawsuit

AP reports that the Church of Scientology yesterday settled a lawsuit that had been brought against it in California state court by former church member Laura Ann DeCrescenzo.  Plaintiff, who began to volunteer for the Church at age 6 or 7 and later became a member of its elite Sea Org, alleges that she was forced to work long hours before she was a teen and was forced to have an abortion at age 17.  (See prior posting.) The terms of the settlement are confidential.
