    Taken from page 2 of the article mentioned in the link above:

    "The Watchtower was not allowed to put on a defense during the six-day trial because the judge ruled the governing body had repeatedly ignored her court orders to produce documents in the case, and had failed to produce the longest serving member of the organization for a deposition."



    Also on page 2 and 3 paragraphs after the one quoted above:

    "Watchtower officials said Friday the judge was wrong in barring them from putting on a defense in the trial and said they would be appealing."




    These statements suggest to me that the sentence passed was a default settlement. The Watchtower Society did not co-operate with the judge.

    thank you , I read these over at the DTT site , but I've given you all the
    incidents I'm aware of ..don't care to repeat them , except that the
    amount of ignorance is phenomenal . One thing a child under 7 or 8 unless
    they have been sitting watching x rated TV cannot ask a mother if
    "daddy has touched you there" , children cannot repeat what they have
    not seen or experienced , none of these elders "ever" interview
    other family members ( ie the girl who turned herself into DSHS at 13
    both of her siblings had been molested , and I remember the congregation
    flying into saying that horrible little girl look what she's doing to her family,
    did none of them think what had her family done to her for her to turn
    herself over to DSHS for protection.) they never take the children to the
    doctors who can determine if anything beyond fondling has occurred , The
    police have a room set up for children who "have no words" to tell what has
    happened , so they can show with dolls what they have experienced , and
    they do this with NO PARENTS who can influence what the child can show.
    But the courts are frequently not much better , they made two of children
    on my street appear in the courtroom without parents to testify against
    the perpetrator ..they were under 8 years old and terrified , I would never
    put a child through that again ..in the court room they don't call the children
    liars , in the kingdom hall they do ..I have to stop here the hackles are raising
    on my neck ..the Panorama program from the UK is still available online ..and
    Barbara has gone from being a reasonable presenter to somewhat hysterical
    in the last video I saw her in ...the Silent Lambs website is still going strong
    and hopefully has given some a safe place of refuge ..I know more women
    than my fingers who have suffered this same abuse or similar in childhood ..
    There are a number of organizations set up help some of the victims who are
    looking to overcome the damage it does to one's relationships , and I've told
    you that many have told me their stories which will remain concealed in a place
    of trust .
    California has taken more than a few to court at least 17cases and the one with
    the six girls was awarded punitive damages of about 6 mill each (with gag orders)
    long before the Conti case ...I think the Silent Lambs website has kept track of them .
    (these are the ones "against" the WT)

    "Let every soul be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. Therefore he who opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will receive judgment to themselves. For those ruling are an object of fear, not to the good deed, but to the bad. Do you, then, want to have no fear of the authority? Keep doing good, and you will have praise from it; for it is God’s minister to you for your good. But if you are doing what is bad, be in fear: for it is not without purpose that it bears the sword; for it is God’s minister, an avenger to express wrath upon the one practicing what is bad." - Rom. 13:1-4

    I guess Zalkin has found his niche , suing the WT for pedophiles and certainly
    california is apparently full of them
