Tom Cruise, Scientology Peeps Accused of Bribing Judges

by at . Comments

Tom Cruise has bigger problems than the fashion sense of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes (matching outfits, come on). We're talking about bribing judges!

Church of Scientology critic Peter Letterese is currently accusing some of the leaders of the controversial religion (including Tom Cruise) of paying off a federal judge and others to hold up a $250 million lawsuit he filed back in July.

In response to these alleged dastardly deeds, Letterese has amended the suit for an extra $15 million. That's right. He now wants $265 million.

Moving forward with a lawsuit against the famously litigous Church of Scientology is a challenging enough task to achieve, but accusing federal judges of taking bribes would make Letterese’s difficult battle seem impossibly uphill.

The defendants don't seem too worried about it, either.

As an associate of Tom Cruise was quoted as saying:

“Without compelling proof to support these allegations, like video of the judges being handed envelopes of cash, I think he stands a better chance of successfully bouncing down a flight of stairs on his head than he has of winning this lawsuit.”
