The Vagos Motorcycle Club alleges in a lawsuit that Riverside County law enforcement authorities defamed the group and damaged its reputation by falsely linking members to attacks against Hemet police officers. Statements made by officials, including former Riverside County Dist. Atty. Rod Pacheco and Hemet Police Chief Richard Dana, described the group as "cockroaches" and "terrorists" who "practice an extreme brand of violence," the lawsuit states. The comments implicated the Vagos club in the attacks and were made in the wake of Operation Everywhere, a March 2010 law enforcement action targeting 30 alleged members, according to the suit filed Thursday in Riverside County Superior Court.

The operation by a local, state and federal task force took the suspects into custody on suspicion of narcotics, weapons and parole violations, the Hemet Police Department said.

Since its founding some 35 years ago by the late science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology has worked hard to shore up its religious profile for the public, the courts and the Internal Revenue Service. In the old days, for example, those who purchased Hubbard's Scientology courses were called "students." Today, they are "parishioners." The group's "franchises" have become "missions." And Hubbard's teachings, formerly his "courses," now are described as sacred scriptures.

If Brian Quintana, an events planner who bills himself as "the billionaire's Hollywood go-to guy," is to be believed, the last decade and a half of his life has been marked by a series of startlingly abusive relationships with celebrities. If he is to be believed, actress Stefanie Powers sexually assaulted him, socialite Paris Hilton tried to wreck him professionally and movie producer Jon Peters solicited him to commit murder.

A long-running lawsuit involving some of Hollywood's most powerful players has led to accusations that CBS committed fraud when it hired entertainment President Jeff Sagansky. The Los Angeles Superior Court case, set for a hearing today, alleges that CBS abruptly canceled a television pilot called "Triangle" in 1989 as part of an elaborate scheme to conceal payments made in connection with bringing Sagansky on board at the network. Sagansky was chairman of TriStar Pictures at the time.
