The only glitch in this article is this sentence:
the Church’s vindictive and cynical legal strategy against the Cult Awareness Network, whereby it sued the organization—a support group for cult members and their families—into bankruptcy, assumed its name, and then operated it as a Scientology front.
To be more exact, the lawsuits were filed by parents using CoS money and lawyers. A lawyer and Scientologist, Steven Lee Hayes, bought the Cult Awareness Network and let Scientologists take it over. CAN still has no legal relationship to the Church of Scientology, International, or other CoS corporations.
