Church of Scientology Found Guilty of Fraud in France

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.  See Max Colchester, Paris Scientology Center Is Found Guilty of Fraud, Wall St. J., O. 28, 2009, at A16.
