Woman Plans Third Trial Against Scientology Church
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ A 27-year-old woman who saw her $39 million judgment against the Church of Scientology erased by a Portland judge’s ruling said she intends to pursue another trial on her fraud claim against the group.
″I’m really confused, dismayed and saddened about everything,″ Julie C. Titchbourne, 27, of Seattle, said in an interview with The Oregonian newspaper Saturday.
Multnomah Circuit Judge Donald H. Londer on Tuesday declared a mistrial after a jury had awarded Ms. Titchbourne the $39 million award. Her first case also ended in a mistrial.
Ms. Titchbourne had charged that the group made more than two dozen misrepresentations when she was recruited into Scientology.
