The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that a French court has found the Church of Scientology guilty of fraud and fined it 600,000 Euros ($890,000). The WSJ cites the plaintiff's lawyer (Olivier Morice) as saying that the ruling marks the first time that a court has held the Church of Scientology responsible for its fundraising methods.
