Accusations include defamation, slander, invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress as well as physical and psychological harm from workplace abuse and human trafficking.

For its part, the church’s defense mentioned that they will defend themselves vigorously against these unfounded accusations.
The Church of Scientology is characterized as a doctrine that inculcates the discovery of happiness through the understanding of oneself and other individuals as spiritual beings who have forgotten their true immortal nature
