See also http://www.gerryarmstrong.com/ and http://www.fairgamed.org/ for background into this story. Scientology broke the agreement long before Mr. Armstrong was forced to resume telling the truth about the criminal enterprise if only for self defense.
The Washington Times has two reports about the Armstrong case. The first reads kinda normal. The second calls CoS a cult. See below:
Scientologists win $500,000 lawsuit
SAN FRANCISCO, April 14 (UPI) -- A California judge has ordered a former member and longtime critic of the Church of Scientology to pay it $500,000 for criticizing the group.
Superior Court Judge Lynn Duryee issued the order in a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Scientology defector Gerald Armstrong, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.
The cult had sought $10 million from Armstrong, who joined in 1969, left in 1981 and later became a prominent critic.
He was sued by the cult in 1984 for allegedly stealing thousands of pages of private papers that shed new light on the movement's mysterious founder, the late L. Ron Hubbard.
Judge Paul Breckenridge Jr., who presided over that case, issued a ruling in which he called Hubbard "a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background and achievements."
In settling that case, Armstrong had agreed to return the documents and not speak about Scientology -- or else pay $50,000 for every such utterance.
On Tuesday, Duryee ordered Armstrong to pay $500,000 to the cult.
