Ex-Scientologist Story #50, Bonnie Woods, smear victim

Bonnie Woods defeated Scientology in court

 

How nasty and vindictive and Scientology be??  They tried to ruin this woman’s life but she was tougher than the cult. 
 
From Wikipedia, “Bonnie Woods is an American former Scientologist and critic of the Church of Scientology. Woods resides in Britain. She was a member of the Sea Org within Scientology, and left in 1982. She and her family were monitored by a private investigator. The Church of Scientology spread pamphlets around her East Grinstead neighbourhood making negative claims about her. Woods sued for libel against the organization – in response Scientology filed three libel suits against her. Her case eventually reached the High Court of Justice. Scientology paid her for costs and damages, and admitted that the claims it had made about her were false.”

This was a major defeat for the cult, besides the loss of 155,000 pounds they had to pay Bonnie, not to mention their own legal costs, it got them a ton of bad press, all of it makes for interesting reading.  For a detailed listing of press coverage go: here:http://www.solitarytrees.net/pickets/sp861.htm
