ATTACHMENT A (updated 12/24/04)


Below are companies that felt they needed the assistance of our legal system to help get Scientology to pay its bills. This route is expensive and time-consuming in itself, so I'm sure these companies sued only as a last resort.


[note: all the below come up from a search of a Scientology related corporation name, but sometimes the computer does not show such a corporation in the printout or on screen, indicating to me multiple defendants]

St. Petersburg Times, January 1, 1991

- Five local companies sue the Church of Scientology for more than $127,000, claiming that the organization has failed to pay its bills for work and construction equipment. Besides these lawsuits, the Scientologists have settled five others in the previous two years from companies that claimed they were owed more than $39,000 for items ranging from travel services to construction materials.
