"In the latest round of an ongoing battle, the Church of Scientology filed a $120 million federal lawsuit against IRS officials, charging them with illegal acts against Scientology and its members, as part of a 33-year pattern of harrassment. The suit alleges that Los Angeles IRS agents planned to plant forged documents in Scientology files, and to deny a number of their churches tax exemption, with a view to the "ultimate disintegration" of Scientology. IRS officials named in the suit include agents investigating scientology founder L. Ron. Hubbard for criminal tax evasion, a probe that ended with Hubbard's death in 1986. The suit allegedly draws upon documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and testimony from IRS officials." -- Don D.C.Lindsay Carnegie Mellon Computer Science
