How did I miss this one?

The Church of Scientology is now on trial in France! And what’s more, if they lose they could potentially be required to stop activity in France — which would certainly be a step in the right direction.

“The group’s Paris headquarters and bookshop are defendants in the case. If found guilty, they could be fined €5 million ($7 million) and ordered to halt their activities in France.

Seven leading French Scientology members are also in the dock. Some are charged with illegally practising as pharmacists and face up to 10 years in prison and hefty fines.”

Over at Pharyngula, PZ has an interesting idea about who to target next…
