    What options are open to the Appeals Court? Can they, for instance, *increase* the penalties?

    I'm not too greedy. I don't need the court to increase the sentense I just want them to uphold the decision of the lower isntance court (because there is always the possibility of them reversing the decision).
    Unfortunately, in civil law countries, decisions tend to be short and not too wordy [unlike in England or in the States]. I would have loved to have a long decision with lots of beautiful quotes in it.

    IANAL but this seems to be going along the lines of typical CoS stalling tactics so that once delays and continuations are granted they can then baw about delays in justice and try and get everything thrown out.
    It'd be nice to get Mr. Berry's take on this, even though its in France I'm sure he could make heads or tails of the basics.
    One thing for sure is that the more the cult bitches and complains, the more people start looking into what its all about and gain insight into its sordid history, the less public support CoS will have as it tries to pass itself off as something ressembling a legitimate 'religion'/charitable (ha!) organization.
    What all this time buying does also is give the lawmakers longer to educate themselves on just how twisted and single minded the corporate cult is.
    It'd be nice to see France, Germany, Australia, Canada, etc. get networking on how grow bigger teeth when dealing with giant multi-level/international scams such as CoS that hide behind religious cloaking and waste various court's time by endless litigation~ ie., fines that start to reflect the costs to taxpayers.
