Peter Letterese, a former Scientologist, has filed papers in Florida on July 15. He has started a lawsuit to claim that Scientologists harassed him after he left the Church.
Peter Letterese has named Tom Cruise in his lawsuit. Peter wants to see the Church broken up under America’s RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization). This law was used by the government to handle Mafia families.
An investigator, Paul Barresi, said that Letterese was using te celebrity’s name to gain attention. Karin Pouw, a spokeswoman for the Church of Scientology made a statement to say that the lawsuit was frivolous and based on falsehoods.
