The judge pressed Liggieri on the spiritual nature of his client's belief, saying the bar staff would not be aware of Piatek’s specific religious philosophies. “How many members are in this spiritual program that your client is engaged in?” the judge asked. “Your honor, we don’t allege the amount of individuals,” Liggieri said. “So, it’s a creed of one?” the judge asked....
