    Back to the thread.

    Opinions on this? For a refund?

    The contract calls for a panel of three Scientologists in good standing to decide what would be fair.

    There is several thing amiss with the cults argument.

    Firstly it's claiming first amendment freedom to resolve the matter in arbitration when over in Texas apparently it isn't a matter for binding arbitration if Debbie Cook sends an e-mail, in fact it seems to be very much a matter for the courts in that case.

    Second; The cults repayment policy ALWAYS guaranteed a repayment. A refund, not so much.

    Thirdly; it was never a fucking gift.

    Fourthly; Have you ever read the Fair game law and it's cancellation? Bert's got no hope.

    Fifth, if Scientology is a charitable organisation, then I'm a horse.

    Sixth; whatever documents we signed when we gave money, none of us got a copy, isn't that cute?

    It's a repayment, not a refund. They didn't take the services. The newspaper thinks the words are synonyms, but they are not to Scn accounts people.

    But a panel of "scientologists in good standing" being impartial? Yeah, right.

    The contract as written lays out binding arbitration as the means of resolving the dispute. The Baumgarten both signed the contract, taking payment in 'due consideration'. Bother Baumgarten were adults presumed to be mentally competent at the time of signing. Ergo, their best hope is to find some means by which the agreement itself can be held to be invalid by the courts. That doesn't look like anything like remotely approaching to a 'sure thing'.

    I don't mean to be rude Mark but you're setting a record shitting up threads and this one, I'm afraid you're too busy trolling to have noticed, isn't even about the Baumgartens.

    Oops, was in a hurry, thanks, I did mean repayment. These two cases at once, there is something very wrong here and I don't understand the legalities enough to write about it and I hope someone does.

    Yeah I pointed that out in post #3. Someone was too carried away to notice the scenery had changed.... in fact the whole thread was different.

    It sounds more like it's a Repayment (unused money on Account wanted back) than a Refund (Services delivered but unhappy with the Service and wants money back).
