HOW SCIENTOLOGY COERCED A CHILD TO HAVE AN ABORTION: THE LAURA DECRESCENZO FILES

—————- In anticipation of her biggest day in court yet, Laura DeCrescenzo and her attorneys hit the Church of Scientology with 928 pages of new filings —————- Details from 18,000 pages of evidence show how Scientology manipulated a child to keep her working under slave-like conditions —————- A key document describing DeCrescenzo’s unwillingness to have her coerced abortion is missing from the evidence Scientology was ordered to produce By Tony Ortega Wednesday afternoon, Laura DeCrescenzo filed explosive new information in her four-year legal odyssey against the Church of Scientology, submitting 928 pages of new declarations and exhibits in anticipation of a crucial October 23 hearing in her lawsuit against the church which alleges abuse, including allegations that she was forced to have an abortion at only 17 years of age. Key to the new filings is information gleaned from thousands of pages of previously secret files that the church fought mightily to keep under wraps. But on Monday, the U.

MONIQUE RATHBUN FILES SUIT AGAINST SCIENTOLOGY OVER HARASSMENT

Monique_Rathbun2Monique Rathbun has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Church of Scientology’s controlling entities and its leader David Miscavige for years of harassment she alleges have caused her serious harm since her husband, Mark “Marty” Rathbun, went public in 2009 with information about his life as a top executive in the church.

On Friday, the Comal County, Texas district court granted Monique a temporary restraining order, calling on Scientology to stop following her and electronically surveilling her. A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday whether to convert the restraining order into a temporary injunction, but Monique’s attorney, Ray Jeffrey, tells us he thinks the matter will likely be delayed about two weeks.

After four years of intense harassment, Monique is battling back, Jeffrey tells us, and they expect this to be a brutal fight.

Marty Rathbun was once the second-highest official in Scientology, but he defected in 2004 and then vanished. He moved to South Texas and was so under the radar, there were Internet rumors that he had died. During that time, however, he met and began dating Monique Carle, who is also called Mosey. In 2009, Marty resurfaced in a big way with a blog that was highly critical of Scientology leader David Miscavige. As we’ve written many times before, Rathbun’s blog became perhaps the single biggest threat to Miscavige’s leadership of the church and helped propel Scientology into a major crisis that still grips the 60-year-old church.

Known for retaliating against former members, Scientology then sent waves of private investigators and goon squads to South Texas to surveil and harass the Rathbuns in their Ingleside on the Bay home.

Marty and Mosey were married on July 3, 2010, but by late 2012 they had tired of the surveillance, and moved to a house with more privacy near San Antonio.

Monique’s attorney, Ray Jeffrey, tells us that if the church had stopped its activities at that point, Monique would not have filed a lawsuit. But even in their new, quieter home, the church has gone to extraordinary lengths to keep the Rathbuns under surveillance. So now, he says, Monique is suing for the entire four years of harassment.

Monique is suing on grounds of intentional infliction of emotional distress, tortious interference of her employment contract, and invasion of privacy. Says the complaint…

The Defendants have worked around the clock for three years to destroy Mrs. Rathbun. She has been harassed, insulted, surveilled, photographed, videotaped, defamed, and humiliated to such a degree as to shock the conscience of any decent, law-abiding person. She has been subjected to numerous, aggressive attempts to intimidate her. Each and all of the Defendants have participated enthusiastically in this abuse, without regard to Mrs. Rathbun’s basic rights as a human being. She has been targeted at home, at work, and anywhere else that she happens to be.

 
Attached to the complaint is Monique’s own affidavit, which details some of the things she has endured even though, she points out, she was never a member of the Church of Scientology and has never spoken out about the church itself, only the harassment she’s endured…

From 2010 to the present, the Scientologists have targeted me specifically for harassment. They have worked to drive a wedge between me and my husband, family, and co-workers. Scientology investigators have visited my mother, my father, my former husband, my friends, and my co-workers. The investigators have falsely claimed to all of these contacts that my life is at risk as long as I remain with my husband. These malicious allegations are hateful and distressing.

Presumably because I am a woman, the Defendants seem obsessed with my sexuality. They sent a sex toy to me at my workplace, which was very embarrassing. With their constant surveillance of me, they knew when I was away from the office, at which time they sent flowers to one of my female co-workers with a “romantic” message purporting to be from me. Of course this was distressing to me.

Scientology websites have published bizarre and sometimes vile allegations against me, including false claims that I am a sexual pervert. They have even alleged that I am not even a woman, but a man who has had a secret sex-change operation. So, I have even had my womanhood questioned as part of this sick campaign to inflict maximum emotional distress on me.

 
“How does any decent human being come up with that?” Jeffrey says, referring to the flower delivery and the material on the smear websites.

Jeffrey has previously litigated several cases against the church, and reportedly won large settlements for former church executive Debbie Cook and former church private eyes Paul Marrick and Greg Arnold, whom we profiled when they visited the Rathbuns at their Ingleside on the Bay home, near Corpus Christi, last September.

“They loved that house down there, but they had to leave. And if the church had left them alone Monique wouldn’t have sued,” Jeffrey tells us.

But after the Rathbuns settled into their new home, unusual things started to happen.

The adjacent parcel of land, for example, was undeveloped. But suddenly, someone showed up there, Jeffrey says, and began clearing land.

Marty, he says, approached the man to ask him who he was. The man gave the name “Greg Sloat” and said he was a writer, an author, and that his publisher had rented the land as a quiet place for him to write.

“It was overgrown. It had no water, no electricity,” Jeffrey tells us. “The guy said he was bringing in an RV. But it’s completely remote, not in a subdivision, there was no street address. It wasn’t for sale and it wasn’t for rent. The only way they got that property was by looking at a map to find out what was next to Marty’s house.”

Jeffrey says the land was leased for two years, with cash paid up front.

“Some publishing company is not finding a property like that in Texas for one of its writers,” he says. “We looked into it, and he’s actually Steven Gregory Sloat. He has published some kind of Tom Clancy-style thriller. But he told Marty that he hadn’t published anything in his name and said he was a ‘packager,’ someone who started a project and then turned it over for more famous names to finish.”

After Sloat arrived, high-tech cameras were suddenly installed in trees overlooking the Rathbun residence with a sign claiming that they were placed there for the Texas Wildlife Conservancy — which doesn’t exist, Jeffrey says.

“The cameras are not game cameras, they’re high tech human surveillance cameras,” he adds. “That was the straw that broke the camel’s back for Monique. Cameras pointed at her driveway, watching who comes and goes.”

After the Rathbuns began making inquiries, Jeffrey says, Sloat suddenly disappeared, claiming in a voice mail that his publisher had moved up his deadline.

Another neighbor realized that the cameras had been put on trees that were actually on his property, and the cameras have now come down. But the local power company did show up to bring electricity to the Sloat property, Jeffrey says.

“And Marty and Monique are still being followed around by private investigators,” he adds. “I don’t understand the fascination for the Rathbuns by the church. They have to be spending ridiculous amounts money on this stuff.”

We asked him what outcome they were aiming for in the lawsuit.

“We want to get it to a jury, have a permanent injunction in place to leave them alone, and award them a large sum of money to make an example of Scientology and teach them that they can’t do this anymore,” he says. “Monique has never been a member of the Church of Scientology. She hasn’t been an ‘enemy’ of the church. It’s inexcusable that they would harass her mercilessly as they have.”

Sloat has been named as a defendant in the lawsuit as has Monty Drake, a Dallas private investigator who the Rathbuns allege was involved in leasing a home near theirs in Ingleside on the Bay and was used to surveil them. The suit also names two of Scientology’s top entities — the Church of Scientology International and the Religious Technology Center — and the RTC’s chairman of the board, David Miscavige, who is the leader of the church.

The temporary restraining order puts several restrictions in place, at least until Tuesday. Here’s the list of activities that have been prohibited…

1. Electronic or personal surveillance of Mrs. Rathbun’s home, her workplace, or her public activities.

2. Making threats to Mrs. Rathbun in person or by telephone or electronic means.

3. Following, pursuing, stalking, or “tailing” Mrs. Rathbun.

4. Contacting or harassing Mrs. Rathbun’s employer, her co-workers, her family members, or her friends.

 
“I think it’s interesting that I haven’t heard anything from the church yet,” Jeffrey tells us.

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, but Jeffrey says he was told the court will have limited time that day. Since Jeffrey estimates that a hearing on a temporary injunction would last two days, he predicts that the temporary restraining order will be extended and a new date set.

If the temporary injunction is granted, it would stay in place until a trial or until the case is dismissed or settled or otherwise adjudicated.

“I predict it’s going to a be a long fight,” Jeffrey says.

Here’s the complaint…

    “…miscavige, who refers to himself as the pope of scientology..” you gotta love that..

    • pronoia

      I think Ray Jeffrey is enjoying this. I can imagine the dinner parties and the stories he must be able to tell about a “church” with PIs, wackos in matching t-shirts on golf carts, cameras in trees, sex toy tech and so forth. Is David Miscavige going to argue that these things are not happening or merely that it isn’t his fault?

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        Already I’m waiting for the movie.

        • Krew13

          Talking of movies, if Top Gun’s next flick performs as poorly as his last two, which both struggled to make even $80m domestic business, he may be thinking twice about staying in the Sciloons. His days of guaranteed $100m grosses are long gone. Maybe one day it’ll suddenly click that his grosses fell around the same time he started ranting like a freak in every interview about the joys of being a Sciloon.

            I think he’s just not ageing gracefully. He’s never been known for suave roles or subtle ones. He hasn’t increased his range, and the go-go action hero doesn’t work when that’s pretty much what you’ve done. Rain Man excepted, but I think that he got some real help from Dustin Hoffman.

        Someone actually had the job of going to the store to buy a sex toy and then mailing it to someone who would receive it in an embarrassing situation.

        “sex toy tech”… perfection :P

      • DamOTclese2

        Jeffrey likes to assist people, the revenues acquired from punishing the Scientology corporation while he does so is obviously his firm’s core objective, but Jeffrey also doesn’t like to see these ahole crooks getting away with this racketeering behavior.

    Well, the Sciloons can always rely on their personal ATM, AKA Nancy Cartwright, to donate to their legal costs. She’s an A1 rube. $10m donation and in return a cheap ass plaque and meaningless title of Her Royal Governor. Fucking insane and lulzy at the same time.

  • Jeb Burton

    Im no admirer of Marty Rathbun. I think he is a grifter who is using his former position in the church to charge thousands of dollars for auditng. But today, I am a big fan of his wife. No human should have to go through what she has had to. In my opinion, her case is rock solid, and maybe it will stop the cult from this kind of behavior. My only hope is that she wins, takes the money and leaves Marty.

    • Davka

      Someone may have posted this already, but Marty posted a little homage to Mosey on his site. Whatever else one says about Marty, that man loves his wife, and to say that she’s put up with a LOT is the understatement if the year. It’s gonna be a long litigation, and I hope a costly one for CoS.

    • sizzle8

      Since Mosey wants to stay with Marty, why do you wish her to be unhappy?
      I realize that it’s your opinion, but it’s not hers.

  • LyleGerswin

    This is all good for Mosey however when a reporter becomes
    Subjective versus Objective it all goes to hell. Tony has crossed that line he
    has shaken hands with the devil of Rinder Rathbun for financial gain at what
    cost Tony? I Doublt this comment will last as Tony will have them removed. I
    despise scientology as well however taking advantage of people for money is
    accepted at least by the reporting I have seen.

    • Theo Sismanides

      Tony is doing a fine job, just getting data from both sides, the complete anti-scientologists and the anti-churchies. Rinder, Rathbun and others we are anti-churchies and we have all suffered more than a lot here. So we have a say and Tony grabs it and promotes it. I think he does a great service to Truth and a bit biased on the complete anti-scientology side but I forgive him.

      But he definitely can see that the church now is where all the human rights abuses come from and all the crimes and illegal acts.

      • i-Betty

        Right on, Theo!

      • Remy

        Great post, Theo. Thanks for being open minded.

      • aquaclara

        Very nice post, Theo.

    • Jvm3

      Could you cite one example of Tony being subjective rather than objective in the article?

      • LyleGerswin

        Read ; history will tell the story not 1 story but many leading to and end
        Is it acceptable that Rinder Rathbun are charging people for
        this garbage with no state license, education or training. Taking further
        advantage via funds, relationships where in Rinder’s case he took advantage of
        a younger girl that is A’ok too. By standards set by others it’s just fine
        Hubbard was a Madman but if you feed intel you are A’ok. Reporting the last
        vestige of hope yet that is falling by the wayside.

          Dodging Jvm3’s question, I see. What a surprise.

        • ze moo

          Any devotee of Hubbard can charge anyone anything the ‘client’ is willing to pay for the ‘tech’. Sad, but true. Not a crime to be $cientologist (reformed church) in the US. Ortega uses Rinder/Rathbun as much as they ‘use’ him. No exchange of money, Rathbun doesn’t share and I don’t know that Rinder is doing any ‘auditing’.

          The only thing Ortega gets out of this blog are sleepless nights and monthly bills from Worldpress. And lots of snark and some lutz too…..maybe caek once and while….

            LOL!

        Not to mention these accusations:

        “Tony has crossed that line he
        has shaken hands with the devil of Rinder Rathbun for financial gain as what
        cost Tony?”

        “I despise scientology as well however taking advantage of people for money is
        accepted at least by the reporting I have seen.”

        I say put up, or shut up. Who, in your mind, is he taking advantage of? And, are you suggesting someone has paid him to write this article? What particular “financial gain” are you talking about?

        Sounds like a lot of lame and vague accusations to cast doubt on Tony’s integrity.

        • LyleGerswin

          He is writing a book the longer he keeps up the facade of objective reporting the more copies he sells are you that daft?

            Might be he is trying to put an end to Scientology and the abuse. Keep an eye on the rest of the auditors though.

          • Remy

            You’ve got the sequence wrong. Tony is writing a book because he is an investigative reporter. Tony is not an investigative reporter simply to sell a book.

            Yes, he’s writing a book. Everybody knows that. You seemed to be suggesting some sort of impropriety concerning “financial gain”. Nothing improper about writing a book about Scientology.

          • Still_On_Your_Side

            This is period “.” This is a comma “,”. This is a sentence. There are many places that will assist you in learning how to read and write. Until you are able to do so, please stop insulting Tony.

      He’s reporting actual legal proceedings.

      • LyleGerswin

        Is Rathbun Rinder not charging for counseling without proper
        education or liscense are these not facts. Charges have not been processed yet
        they will be they continue to follow the teachings of the madman hubbard. I
        guess this is not important.

        • Remy

          If you have a ministerial degree, you are granted a lot of legal latitude with regard to counseling. For better or for worse, it’s legal, so your point is weak.

          Most people here agree Hubbard was quite unsavory- in that regard you are preaching to the choir.

      I’m admittedly still druggy-woozy from a medical “procedure” today, but even my most awake brain cells don’t understand what you’re talking about.

      • Espiando

        Don’t worry, Sherb. This is what happens when a Dead Agent Pack is translated from Scino to Retard.

        • Sherbet

          Ah! I thought it was Esperanto translated into Pig Latin and sent through a paper shredder. Now I get it, Espiando.

      • Captain Howdy

        So how did it go? Any pain?

        • Sherbet

          Not a bit. I was aware of what everyone was saying, but I didn’t feel anything. For a non-drug user, it’s actually kind of fun, as is the follow-up deep nap! I’m good and healthy, too, so I won’t be vacating the Bunker any time soon.

      Tony has only removed a couple of comments, like, ever.
      And then only because they were offensive.
      Your comments are just stupid…so you are quite safe!

    Derail alert: Wasn’t the tent scheduled to arrive today? Just in the last hour 60-70 hour wind gusts, lightning, and just heard report that some trees are down on Fort Harrison in Clearwater. I guess this means Miscavige got the memo.

    • MissCandle

      O, I am empathizing with your seething (semicolon) and I am jealous (in a nice way) for all those lucky Bunkerites who will be attending The TomKat Project and/or socializing together afterwards. Have fun. Have one (or more) on my behalf!

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      me too. Do we have field reporter who will be spoon feeding us birds tonight?

      • Bury_The_Nuts

        State of Circle was going!

    • Sherbet

      I’m envious, but the main thing that kept me from joining Tony et al is me, so there’s whining over it. I hope I get to meet Tony someday, preferably at a Boston book signing.

      • Davka

        I second that! Ooh, and maybe a talk at the Boston Public Library!

        • Sherbet

          I’d be there. You?

            I’d probably have to call in every “please watch my three year old” favor I’ve got if Mr. Davka couldn’t do it for some reason, but yeah, I’d find a way to be there.

              It’s a date.

    • filosofa

    • Unex Skcus

      Yeh, I’m green. Busy, so had to send my news crew over there to cover it.

  • scnethics

    Sometimes I worry that Miscavige will clean up his act just enough to maintain the status quo and keep the operation from falling off a cliff. Then a piece of news like this reaffirms how insane this m***erf***er is. I mean, WOW!

  • LyleGerswin

    Do not get me wrong Hubbard, miscavige, rinder, rathbun they are all parasites. scientology will soon be dead however the stringing along others for money will not unless those watching call the others to task for their fraud.

    • Theo Sismanides

      Scientology techniques (auditing) have been spread all over the planet. It’s not just Rathbun (Rinder is not auditing, so you know). There are dozens who do. You and your State Control System are a bit late.

      In any case who needs a license to live?

      I have seen farmers and diary producers in the US needing a license to produce crops and milk for their children and neighbours. This starts from the US. It’s the most NWO thing I have heard.

      Who needs a license to live?

      • Bury_The_Nuts

        “Scientology techniques (auditing) have been spread all over the planet.”

        So has manure. At least THAT helps things grow.

        • Theo Sismanides

          Hey, I thought we were together on this. Now you put manure with auditing?

          Not ok! hahaha.

          • Captain Howdy

            Well, Hubbard did pull the ‘tech’ out of his ass, so it’s appropriate.

              I’m a noob here too. Seems the Bunkerites are happy to play nice if you’d just take time off from preaching scientology at everyone. You know it falls upon deaf ears and you do come across as hostile and inept. I believe you can be charming and very interesting, sans the preachiness, so here’s something just for you. Hope it helps…

        Oh come on, why do you advertise auditing here. Why don’t you be nice, and stop saying things that you know most people here will hate.

        Why not play nice with the Bunker posters, instead of trying to make people angry? You have a lot of nice and smart and funny things to say

        • Unit G-Xenu’s Other Fist

          They’re winding us up. Trolling to nth degree.

    • George Layton

      Everyone could make use of a little Thetanic auditing. It would help shake them loose of those pesky physical needs.

  • Foxrenard

    Something out of this topic… Does somebody know if the sect “Visualize” in the TV Show “The Mentalist” is for mocking scientology ?

    • Once_Born

      I would say so.
      In the clip below, Jayne is ‘audited’ using an ‘orb’ instead of an e-meter, in a book -lined ‘course room’.
      Are the questions he is asked familiar to any exes?

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs7gsXxQkY4

      • Unit G-Xenu’s Other Fist

        Holy Crap I’m going to start watching that show more :-D

      • Foxrenard

        Cool ! I could find all the episodes where there’s “Visualize” cult in it and actually, I think the huge portrait (character : Bret Stiles acted by Malcom McDowell) does not represent Hubbard but Miscavige. Indeed, the Founder of the cult “Visualize”, Timothy Farragut, died 20 years ago in a car accident and some think that Bret Stiles actually murdered him to take his place.

        • Once_Born

          Agreed – but, in the character of Bret Stiles, artistic licence has to take over from satire.
          Stiles is manipulative, sociopathic and ruthless (like Miscavige) but also intelligent, subtle and insightful (very much unlike Miscavige).

          If they had accurately based Stiles on Miscavige, the character would not be a worthy opponent for Jayne.

          • Foxrenard

            True! :)

    • i-Betty

      Oooooh….

  • Nightshade09

    What worries me is that Miscavige is such a insane Napoleonic Complex driven dwarf of a man and he has such a massive hold on the hard core membership. If this ass feels backed in a corner or the CoS collapsing. He might pull a Jones Town, Waco or Heaven’s Gate thing.

    • ze moo

      I don’t think that many of the koolaid drinkers would follow the dwarfenführer that far. Believing in Lroon and Xenu is one thing, but killing yourself and your family to prove your loyalty to Davey is just too far out. Remember that they have been conditioned to ‘clear the planet’, not clear out of the planet. One can hope……

      • ThetaBara

        I would far rather see them aware than dead.

    • Theo Sismanides

      Scientology, for all some want to present as such and such is no Jones Town, Waco or Heaven’s Gate thing. Scientology is described in basic books and those books are the core of it’s teachings. Anyone (or almost anyone, ok) can see that such basic things lead towards Understanding.

    • Remy

      No fucking way. Scientology makes you egocentric. And you know they all want to punch Miscavige in the face. The only barrier is fear of being declared, fear of disconnection and freeloader debt. Take that away, and 80% would bail instantly.

      • Missionary Kid

              I’ve been vegetarian for 20 years and I still miss bacon sarnies or a good old fry up!

            • i-Betty

              I”m so embarrassed to admit this, but I was a vegetarian for 14 years…except for the secret bacon I would consume when nobody was home!

              Even this weekend when we were away I ordered the vegetarian full English breakfast with extra bacon. My friends don’t even bother to roll their eyes any more :P

            • Cheryl

              When I was pregnant with my first child I had cravings for sausages, the rubbish British bangers. I resisted for a few weeks and went to see the doctor who told me to stop being so stupid and have them. So for a month I had 2 sausages for breakfast every morning!

            • John P.

              Cheryl, that was exactly the scene at my house during our first pregnancy. I had serious cravings for sausage and bacon, and I was delighted that the doctor said that it was OK to indulge during pregnancy. Of course, my (now ex) wife had even more cravings than I did.

            • Missionary Kid

              Did you have sympathetic labor pains?

            • John P.

              No, but over the course of the pregnancy, my waistline dilated by almost 10 centimeters.

            • Cheryl

              The doctor was more concerned about the 2 litre bottle of Dandelion And Burdock I was drinking than the sausages, that was banned.

              LOL!

            • media_lush

              “the rubbish British bangers”

              as one who has lived in both countries a good British sausage is light years ahead of anything you can get in the US

              [they were called bangers as if you didn't prick them the skin bursts making a loud "pop" or "bang"]

            • media_lush

              ’nuff said!

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              I will give you the great bangers…but where did you find a picture where the egg yolk was yellow?
              All I saw in London were a light Ivory yolk! Those fucking chickens need some sun!

            • media_lush

              actually bright yellow yolks from factory chickens are “made” to be bright yellow with additives… the more anaemic ones are more organic.

              every supermarket has a huge choice nowadays and vary a lot in price. you generally get what you pay for. more and more people are keeping their own chickens, too.

            • Cheryl

              British fry up bacon, sausage , fried or scrambled eggs, mushrooms , tomatoes, fried bread, baked beans, black pudding( I think you call that blood sausage in the US) and sometimes hash browns + lashings of toast.

            • Foxrenard

              In Switzerland, from the farm, my egg yolks are orange. Mmmmmm. You can see they are not Monsanto eggs from Area 51 :)

            • Cheryl

              I’ve not been to the US, but I was talking about those supermarket sausages that are slightly pink, the ones that you still need to prick because they have more fat than meat, makes me feel sick just thinking about them !

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Hi Betty! I’ll make the coffee.

              The only Asian cuisine that I’ll eat is wonton soup. Though I’m not so sure American Chinese food even qualifies as “Asian cuisine”

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              Oooh, I love a good Won Ton soup.
              Edit: Only if made by good asian cooks.
              I personally, love Canton!

            • Jvm3

              The city? Or is that a restaurant?

            • Missionary Kid

              It depends on where you eat it. The best I’ve had is in Chinese friends’ homes.

    • media_lush

      and for a few more lulz you can do this….. [start reading]

      • media_lush

        here’s the rest:

        Attached ta tha complaint is Monique’s own affidavit, which details a shitload of tha thangs dat freaky freaky biatch has endured even though, she points out, dat biiiiatch was never a gangmember of tha Church of Scientologizzle n’ has never spoken up bout tha church itself, only tha harassment she’s endured…

        From 2010 ta tha present, tha Scientologists have targeted mah crazy ass specifically fo’ harassment. They have hit dat shiznit ta drive a wedge between me n’ mah homeboy, crew, n’ co-workers. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. Scientologizzle investigators have hit up mah mother, mah father, mah forma homeboy, mah playas, n’ mah co-workers. Da investigators have falsely fronted ta all of these contacts dat mah game be at risk as long as I remain wit mah homeboy. Y’all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! These malicious allegations is hateful n’ distressing.

        Presumably cuz I be a biatch, tha Defendants seem obsessed wit mah sexuality. They busted a sex toy ta me at mah workplace, which was straight-up embarrassing. With they constant surveillizzle of me, they knew when I was away from tha office, at which time they busted flowers ta one of mah biatch co-workers wit a “romantic” message purportin ta be from mah dirty ass. Of course dis was distressin ta mah dirty ass.

        Yo, scientologizzle joints have published bizarre n’ sometimes vile allegations against me, includin false fronts dat I be a horny-ass pervert. They have even alleged dat I aint even a biatch yo, but a playa whoz ass has had a secret sex-change operation. I aint talkin’ bout chicken n’ gravy biatch. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. So, I have even had mah biatchhood dissed as part of dis sick campaign ta inflict maximum wack distress on mah dirty ass.

        “How tha fuck do any decent human bein come up wit that?” Jeffrey says, referrin ta tha flower delivery n’ tha material on tha smear joints, n’ you can put dat on yo’ toast.

        Jeffrey has previously litigated nuff muthafuckin cases against tha church, n’ reportedly won big-ass settlements fo’ forma church executizzle Debbie Cook n’ forma church private eyes Pizzle Marrick n’ Greg Arnold, whom we profiled when they hit up tha Rathbuns at they Ingleside on tha Bizzle home, near Corpus Christi, last September n’ shit.

        “They loved dat doggy den down there yo, but they had ta muthafuckin bounce fo’ realz. And if tha church had left dem ridin’ solo Monique wouldn’t have sued,” Jeffrey drops some lyrics ta us.

        But afta tha Rathbuns settled tha fuck into they freshly smoked up home, unusual thangs started ta happen.

        Da adjacent parcel of land, fo’ example, was undeveloped. Y’all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! But suddenly, one of mah thugs flossed up there, Jeffrey says, n’ fuckin started clearin land. Y’all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka!

        Marty, da perved-out muthafucka says, approached tha playa ta ask his ass whoz ass da thug was. Da playa gave tha name “Greg Sloat” n’ holla’d da thug was a writer, a lyricist, n’ dat his thugged-out lil’ publisher had rented tha land as a on tha down-low place fo’ his ass ta write.

        “Dat shiznit was overgrown. I aint talkin’ bout chicken n’ gravy biatch. Well shiiiit, it had no water, no electricity,” Jeffrey drops some lyrics ta us. “Da playa holla’d da thug was brangin up in a RV. But it’s straight-up remote, not up in a subdivision, there was no street address. Well shiiiit, it wasn’t fo’ sale n’ it wasn’t fo’ rent. Da only way they gots dat property was by lookin at a map ta smoke up what tha fuck was next ta Marty’s house.”

        Jeffrey says tha land was leased fo’ two years, wit chedda paid up front.

        “Some publishin company aint findin a property like dat up in Texas fo’ one of its writers,” da perved-out muthafucka says. “We looked tha fuck into it, n’ he’s straight-up Steven Gregory Sloat yo. Dude has published some kind of Tomothy Clancy-style thrilla n’ shit. But tha pimpin’ muthafucka holla’d at Marty dat dat schmoooove muthafucka hadn’t published anythang up in his name n’ holla’d da thug was a ‘packager,’ one of mah thugs whoz ass started a project n’ then turned it over fo’ mo’ hyped names ta finish.”

        After Sloat arrived, high-tech cameras was suddenly installed up in trees overlookin tha Rathbun residence wit a sign frontin dat they was placed there fo’ tha Texas Wildlife Conservancy — which don’t exist, Jeffrey says.

        “Da cameras is not game cameras, they’re high tech human surveillizzle cameras,” he adds. “That was tha straw dat broke tha camel’s back fo’ Monique. Cameras pointed at her driveway, watchin whoz ass comes n’ goes.”

        After tha Rathbuns fuckin started makin inquiries, Jeffrey says, Sloat suddenly disappeared, frontin up in a voice mail dat his thugged-out lil’ publisher had moved up his fuckin lil’ deadline.

        Another neighbor realized dat tha cameras had been put on trees dat was straight-up on his thugged-out lil’ property, n’ tha cameras have now come down. I aint talkin’ bout chicken n’ gravy biatch. But tha local juice company did show up ta brang electricitizzle ta tha Sloat property, Jeffrey says.

        “And Marty n’ Monique is still bein followed round by private investigators,” he adds. “I don’t KNOW tha fascination fo’ tha Rathbuns by tha church. They gotta be bustin wack amounts scrilla on dis stuff.”

        We axed his ass what tha fuck outcome they was aimin fo’ up in tha lawsuit.

        “Us thugs wanna git it ta a jury, gotz a permanent injunction up in place ta leave dem alone, n’ award dem a big-ass sum of scrilla ta cook up a example of Scientologizzle n’ teach dem dat they can’t do dis no mo’,” da perved-out muthafucka says. “Monique has never been a gangmember of tha Church of Scientology. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. Biatch hasn’t been a ‘enemy’ of tha church. It’s inexcusable dat they would harass her mercilessly as they have.”

        Yo, sloat has been named as a thugged-out defendant up in tha lawsuit as has Monty Drake, a Dallas private investigator whoz ass tha Rathbuns allege was involved up in leasin a home near theirs up in Ingleside on tha Bizzle n’ was used ta surveil em. Da suit also names two of Scientology’s top entitizzles — tha Church of Scientologizzle Internationistic n’ tha Religious Technologizzle Center — n’ tha RTC’s chairman of tha board, Dizzy Miscavige, whoz ass is tha leader of tha church.

        Da temporary restrainin order puts nuff muthafuckin restrictions up in place, at least until Tuesday. It make me wanna hollar playa! Here’s tha list of activitizzles dat done been prohibited…

        1. Electronic or underground surveillizzle of Mrs. Rathbun’s home, her workplace, or her hood activities.

        2. Makin threats ta Mrs. Rathbun up in thug or by telephone or electronic means.

        3. Peepin, pursuing, stalking, or “tailing” Mrs. Rathbun.

        4. Contactin or dissin Mrs. Rathbun’s employer, her co-workers, her crew members, or her playas.

        “I be thinkin it’s bangin-ass dat I haven’t heard anythang from tha church yet,” Jeffrey drops some lyrics ta us.

        A hearin is scheduled fo’ Tuesdizzle yo, but Jeffrey says da thug was holla’d all up in tha court gonna git limited time dat day. It make me wanna hollar playa! Since Jeffrey estimates dat a hearin on a temporary injunction would last two days, he predicts dat tha temporary restrainin order is ghon be extended n’ a freshly smoked up date set.

        If tha temporary injunction is granted, it would stay up in place until a trial or until tha case is dissed n’ dismissed or settled or otherwise adjudicated.

        “I predict it’s goin ta a funky-ass be a long-ass fight,” Jeffrey says.

          She sounds like Steve Martin speaking obviously fake black. The difference is, you laugh with Steve, and he’s making fun of himself. Krusty is doing fake black, and all she reads like is a racist, because it’s directed to a well spoken woman who just happens to be black.

          Krusty would probably try the same thing with Michelle Obama, she’s so fucking ignorant.

        • Gerard Plourde

          Where did this screed come from? It sounds like it owes a huge debt to Hubbard’s racist ramblings.

      • sugarplumfairy

        Yah, Media, on any other story it might be funny.. On this one it just sounds racist, which I’m sure wasn’t your intention

        • media_lush

          didn’t cross my mind… I think shizzle speak is regarded more as a teenage affact over here rather than a racist one

        That would be too many characters in binary for a tweet.

              Remember, Kirstie has said that she tries to live life like it’s the 1940s. They didn’t really have binary back then. And she’s dim enough that she wouldn’t likely get the joke. I have to say that I had to use a converter, since I’ve never had to read binary. Hexadecimal, yes, but binary dumps like front panel switch settings on a crashing mainframe were a little before my time.

  • Sarah James

    I don’t see where Mosey had any choice but to file. They moved to get some peace. David Miscavige must be out of his mind fearful of Marty if he feels the need to hunt him down.

    • Missionary Kid

      Sarah, it’s a part of the “fair game” policy that was started by LRH practically at $cientology’s founding. Many ex-members of the {church} of $cientology have been subjected to this. Especially ones who left with the church and have spoken out. This is common, long time treatment from Co$, unfortunately.

      I don’t know how fearful of Marty DM is, but he’s probably more pissed than anything else.

      • Sarah James

        I do think it would be “fair game” if David Miscavige were made to testify about his harassment of Mosey and Marty. I would say it was a very good start. Could all the other victims of “fair game” get a class action suit going? David could spend a lot of time in court.

        • Missionary Kid

          A class action suit in this case wouldn’t bee too good, because Monique has never been a member of the {Church} of $cientology. {} = sarcasm brackets.

          Most of the victims of the policy have been in the cult. It is usually applied to ex-members or journalists.

  • i-Betty

    Go, Mosey, go, Mosey! *waves a big Mosey flag*

    It’s such a clever idea to sue on Mosey’s behalf, rather than Marty’s. They’ve both suffered the same harassment, but there’s something extra disturbing about the misogynistic way those bastards have treated Mosey. And was never even in!

  • Observer

    I really need to make more of these …

    • Sherbet

      I don’t know, Observer — I think the clams with the deadly down arrows are winning. Here it is only Wednesday, and they’ve already sprinkled the down votes around the Bunker. I’m on the edge of my seat anticipating Thursday’s clamification of the blog. Tremble, tremble.

      Love your shoops! Gave you a down arrow in sympathy – not fair that you missed out. :)

  • Bob

    This suit is a wonderful opportunity to expose all Sciebots to the extreme paranoia inherent in the Grand Leader Mousekaviage. Having unlimited money to buy PIs, set up video cameras and recruit acolytes to harass people is an insane use of power and eventually backfires big time.
    Mosey is perfectly within her rights and public sentiment against the church is going to further trash the church’s already corroded image. It is becoming obvious that the Mouse Kings true intention is not just the exploitation of others but the complete destruction of the C of S.

So friggin’ scary what is done to children in the name of Hubbard, but this story I would like to congratulate this kid who recognizes who the Real Monster is in the room. (Mace Kingsley is in Clearwater where they wring the kids through the Hubbard crazy). Someone calm me and tell me again how this isn’t child abuse and why the authorities can’t raid the damn place?

            I spent several hours down that rabbit hole yesterday. What an extraordinary collection BlackRob’s put together over there. After a couple of hours I realised my jaw was hurting from grinding my teeth, which I was totally unaware of.

            It’s like reading the deluded chicanery of an acid trip, poor buggers (but not the ones who audit children, who deserve to come back next time as a bedbug at the Fort Harrison.)

          An important step in getting through a divorce — discovering that the equipment still works and it’s still fun to use. Congratulations!

          The supermodels used to fulfill that role (in an appropriately serially monogamous manner) back in the days after my marriage cratered. Now that I have Supermodel #1 in my life (and even long before that, after I grew up a bit), they became merely visual decorations for parties at the country place. It’s not like I have much to talk about with a 22-year old blonde who counts every single calorie that she walks by on the street.

        i know you are probably correct- but can you explain a little bit why this is? Why does it take so long for the process to roll in the US?

        • Jvm3

          Mostly because of the discovery of evidence process and motions that need to be agreed upon or argued for in front of the judge. With each motion the other party is given time to research case law and precedents, in order to form their arguments. This can go on and on and back and forth before it even reaches the trial phase.

          • WhereIsSHE

            Exactly.
            If the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (IIED) claim survives –and it will take time for that issue to be resolved–along with expected issues on whether or not this Texas court has personal jurisdiction over ALL of the defendants, then there will be IMMENSE PRESSURE on the defendants to settle this case.
            IMMENSE pressure.

            • Jeb

              Aren’t the defendants in this case the Church?

            • Jvm3

              Miscavige himself, the RTC, CSI, Monty Drake and Steven Sloat are listed as the defendants.

          • SopranoAscends

            As far as discovery goes, we’ve all seen the miles of video collected by the Rathbuns and others all over YouTube, etc. I remember one in particular with Mosey filming a woman who would not leave the external staircase to their front door, although Mosey repeatedly and clearly told her that she was trespassing and to leave. I believe, in response to that woman’s questions, she told her that her husband wasn’t home. And then those idiots in the blue shirts with cams on their hats. Really? Did any of these clowns consider that this blatant overt behavior wouldn’t come bite them on the ass? All these subcontractors to keep layers of separation from the wee one. NOT.

            • WhereIsSHE

              That video of that woman on Mosey’s staircase is precisely the one I thought of immediately when I was reading the Complaint.
              Marty was out of town at the time, if I recall correctly.
              Mosey handled herself beautifully, but you could hear the fear in her voice, even though she was very firm with the woman and used the lingo of the cult to try to get that woman to leave her alone. I remember her telling the woman that she wasn’t provided with all of “the data”, etc.
              I wasn’t there.. and I can tell you that I felt TERRIFIED FOR Mosey.
              I can only imagine the damage/psychological impact that kind of episode could cause someone, even if it only happened ONCE (because it could easily give rise to a fear that it would happen again, whether it did or not, and here, it happened REPEATEDLY).

              See? I’d like to be big enough to have compassion for that brainwashed knitwit… but..
              NO.
              She crossed the line.

              Yeah that woman that came to her door was very creepy, even by Scientology standards. You can see her blank gaze even though she’s wearing sunglasses. Something wasn’t right there.

          • sister wendy

            thanks also….

        • Missionary Kid

          The basic tactic of Co$ is to delay, delay, delay, during which time they file all sorts of motions to make any lawsuit as expensive as possible for the Plaintiffs, because they’ll be obligated to answer all of those motions, and the longer the suit takes, the longer it will usually be for anyone suing to get paid.

          Since the attorneys often work on contingency fees (negotiated between the Plaintiff and their attorney), so that means that they have to carry the costs incurred for a long time.

          Because states have actually been cutting back on the number of courts, that means that there is a waiting list for hearing. As Jvm3 has posted, the discovery process can also take a long time.

          Again, Co$ will delay giving up evidence that is requested, and quibble over every jot and tittle of evidence requested. They will argue and fight over EVERYTHING by filing motion after motion.. They can do this to such an extent that a judge will impose sanctions on them (I hope).

          If Co$ wins, they have cost the opposition a boatload of money. If they lose, it will cost them a boatload of money, but they don’t care. It’s an ego thing with DM, and he’s got a lot of money.

  • Still_On_Your_Side

    How wonderfully embarrassing for Miscavige, a temporary restraining order! His abuse and harrassment of Monique Rathbun is that proverbial straw. In the next few months, there will be other lawsuits against Miscavige for fair game tactics because there are laws protecting people and businesses from those tactics. As Ms. Rathbun’s complaint set out there is tortious interference with contracts and/or business expectations. There is also business defamation, not to mention the torts of intentional infliction of emotional distress and fraud. People harmed by Miscavige and the church are learning they have rights, and there is a growing army of lawyers ready, willing and able to take these cases. And I haven’t even mentioned the Narconon class action, and the Garcia refund lawsuit. If the class is certified by the court, expect that dozens of lawyers with hundreds of plaintiffs as clients will join the Narconon class action from all over the country.

    Miscavige has been given a bottomless purse by the parishioners of the Church of Scientology, he has lived like a king on that purse and he has driven the church into the ground. In the next months ahead, the parishoners have to decide if they want a church and if they want a legacy that is something other than shame and horror. If they do, take the purse and their church back from Miscavige, hire forensic accountants to trace every penny Miscavige has spent, then seize every luxury he has stolen from the church, including his offshore accounts. Cooperate with law enforcement and send Miscavige to jail. Sell the ideal orgs and take that money, and several billion from the church bank accounts, and create a fund to restitute and rehabilitate the thousands of people Miscavige has harmed. Apologize to the world for the harm and deaths that your church has caused. You no longer have the luxury of not doing anything. If you are not courageous enough to fire Miscavige, then at least quit the church and help law enforcement to shut down his criminal enterprise.

    • WhereIsSHE

      Other than the jurisdictional battle which will likely be the first hurdle for Ray J to tackle (after the hearing on the requested injunctive relief), a key issue will be whether or not this plaintiff can pursue her intentional infliction of emotional distress claim, based on the semi-recent (and extreme, IMO) narrowing of this “intentional tort” cause of action under Texas law.

      I imagine most here don’t want to bother with it, but I posted a decent link to a law review article (or note–I can’t recall which it was) on the topic.

      To boil it down, as far as I garnered via a quick glance, the Texas Supreme Court –in response to what was perceived as an abuse of “over-pleading” by personal injury lawyers to include IIED claims (because INTENTIONAL WRONGDOING is a key basis for setting up a PUNITIVE DAMAGES CLAIM)–handed down some fairly draconian language re: the viability of IIED claims.

      I’ll link it again.

      http://www.baylor.edu/content/services/document.php/116862.pdf

      • John P.

        I read the Baylor law review article. It does look like the issue the Court was trying to limit was abuse around the concept of intentional.

        Intentional infliction of emotional distress is only available when the facts are so unique and so egregious that no tort developed under statute or common law addresses that type of claim.

        I can only imagine that repeated intentional attempts to harass someone among all constituents in their life — friends, family, coworkers — would clear the already restricted bar set by the Court in this decision. It sure sounds like Ray Jeffery has taken the current state of affairs into account because of the specific details of the harassment included in the complaint.

        Another money quote from the Baylor article:

        As set out in the Restatement and adopted by the court, the elements of intentional infliction of emotional distress are as follows: (1) the defendant acted intentionally or recklessly; (2) the conduct was extreme and outrageous; (3) the actions of the defendant caused the plaintiff emotional distress; and (4) the emotional distress suffered by the plaintiff was severe. The court further quoted the Restatement that the conduct must have been ―so outrageous in character, and so extreme in degree, as to go beyond all possible bounds of decency, and to be regarded as atrocious, and utterly intolerable in a civilized community.

        It sure sounds like they ought to be able to get the conduct in question to clear the bar here.

        I can just imagine how embarrassing it would be for the cult’s attorneys to cross-examine Monique Rathbun’s co-workers after they testify (to support the assertion that the conduct is “beyond all possible bounds of decency”) that discovering the cult had sent her a vibrator to her office felt outrageous and offensive to them. Imagine the headlines on TMZ and all the rest of the celebrity news sites — “Cruise’s Crazy Cult Defends Sending Sex Toys to Innocent Bystanders as ‘Religious’ Practice”

        • media_lush

          ” “Cruise’s Crazy Cult Defends Sending Sex Toys to Innocent Bystanders as ‘Religious’ Practice”

          I might just use that as my blogs next header……

        • Jvm3

          I completely agree, but this is troublesome:

          “In applying Texas law to a claim for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, a District of Columbia District Court held that ―a battery victim in Texas may not pursue a claim for [intentional infliction of emotional distress] that arose out of the same conduct as the battery claim.”

          And in the conclusion:

          “If there is any recovery for the same facts under another tort, even if that recovery does not include damages for mental distress, intentional infliction of emotional distress is not available.”

          So if it is proven that her privacy was indeed violated, and they are found guilty of that, an IIED claim attached to that will not be allowed? Am I reading that correctly?

          • WhereIsSHE

            Jvm3– That is (sort of) precisely my concern.
            Just would edit your question procedurally, i.e. the issue of whether or not she can pursue an IIED claim would be decided BEFORE the case was ripe for a jury.
            This is going to be a battle of pre-trial motions, assuming that we are reading the caselaw correctly (through the lens of the Baylor article).
            I didn’t read the actual court opinions, though.
            I am only going off of the law review article.

        • WhereIsSHE

          Assuming that the fact that she has other viable claims does not limit her under the decisions discussed in that law review article, this course of conduct is precisely the kind of intentional, egregious, extreme and outrageous conduct that the tort of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress was meant to address.

          Another issue is PROOF of the plaintiff’s EMOTIONAL DISTRESS.
          Typically, this is set forth via EXPERT PSYCH WITNESSES.
          A treating physician–and often a treating PSYCH– are typically called as witnesses to show that the plaintiff sought and received necessary TREATMENT, and an expert psych witness would typically be called to establish the need for continued TREATMENT, etc.

          I hope Mosey has done more than just hold the cans with Marty, and that she has actual medical RECORDS and BILLS to support her emotional distress claim.

          • Poison Ivy

            Having to leave your home to me is proof of emotional distress. What is moving – something like the #3 stressor in life after death of a loved one and divorce? To be forced to do that as your only way out – plus losing $35,000 in the process – is a very big deal. AND THEN IT DIDN’T EVEN WORK!

            • WhereIsSHE

              Typically, you need treatment records–and accompanying bills– to prove monetary damages for alleged psychological harm.

              While I do not doubt that they moved precisely for the reasons alleged in the Complaint since I have seen the videos of the harassment they (somehow) endured at Ingleside on the Bay (or whatever that town is called), it would be recommended to have the aforementioned type of proof to submit to the court/a jury.
              This is not a typical case, and I don’t know whether or not proof of moving and losing money on a real estate transaction (especially considering the housing market which has caused most property values to decline over this time period) will be sufficient.
              Again, I don’t know.
              I have never handled a case like this.
              I never represented any clients who (even allegedly) engaged in such atrocious behavior!
              The only case I ever handled where the parties were accusing each other of absurd conduct involved two rug dealers from Iran. It was not a huge case in terms of the alleged damages– only a few hundred thousand– but it was one of the most bitter cases I have ever handled. And due to the conduct of my clients (a father and son duo), I had to file a motion with the court for permission to withdraw as counsel, and it was granted (which is a rarity).(The court ordered the sheriff to attend the hearing on my motion to withdraw for MY PROTECTION.)
              I don’t even know how my partner got that case into the office, but I rapidly perceived why he pushed it onto my plate, and I will never forgive him for it. It was a harrowing experience.

              I read portions of DM’s deposition… the portion you posted earlier is particularly demonstrative of what a “challenge” (PAIN IN THE ASS) he must be to the attorneys who handle the cult’s litigation matters.

            • John P.

              Just for the record, the loss on the real estate mentioned in the complaint is not for loss of value on an owned piece of real estate, it was for equity built up in a lease/purchase deal that they walked away from. That’s a measurable cash amount whose value is indisputable, rather than a loss in a paper profit, whose value and whose cause can be disputed.

          • Jvm3

            If an auditor is considered a sort of hybrid clergymen/therapist in scientology and has documentation of the auditing sessions, what would prevent he or she from taking the stand to testify as to state of mind with a record for evidence? Normally, doctor/patient or priest/penitent confidentiality would apply, but the privilege belongs to the patient or parishioner and can be waived, correct?

            In any other case, counsel for either the defense or the plaintiff would argue that a Scientology auditor and his or her “documented proof” of emotional distress is all bogus and that they have no scientific expertise or grounding in mental health care. So they wouldn’t never even take the stand.

            But when it’s representation for the Church of Scientology vs. independent Scientology, neither side would ever argue that the “tech” is unfounded in science. Can you see where I’m going with this? Would this have any legal standing in a court?

            • WhereIsSHE

              That’s a good question. I don;t know the answer without researching it, but I can tell you that it doesn’t pass the off-the-cuff “smell test” to me.
              Beyond whether or not there is legal precedent for it…
              Most religions do not charge their parishoners for counseling sessions with clergy.
              AND, to compound that…
              The problem here is that if she got auditing sessions from Marty… it detracts from the air of legitimacy of the “treatment” (vs. seeing an “outside” professional), and also… it would be difficult to believe that she actually paid him for the sessions (as one would have to pay an outside professional for services).
              I have a hard time imagining that they have invoices to serve as an offer of proof to support the damages claim if she simply did auditing with her own husband.
              Imagine a jury hearing that.
              She held onto the cans and talked through it all.. with her husband.
              Not really the same as the jury hearing that she had to go to an outside professional for treatment.
              Are they going to have a scientologist testify that continued auditing is necessary “to a reasonable degree of SCIENTOLOGICAL certainty”?!

              Hey-
              I’m just hoping they got their ducks in order and that they can show proper proof of damages.

            • Jvm3

              I hear that, but you don’t need necessarily need records of monetary transactions to prove that treatment is taking place, whether its spiritual or medical. And, yeah, “counseling” with her husband would be hard for any juror to buy into. If they are playing this to win, they should have Mosey being auditing by another independent scientologist before and during the suit, just for the off chance they could get them on the stand.

      • Jvm3

        So I gather from that that the IIED claim has little chance of success in Texas, but do you believe they still have a case with the invasion of privacy complaints? They have been well documented, after all.

        • WhereIsSHE

          Au contraire.
          I think there is good argument for the IIED claim in this case.
          If ever there was a set of facts to support an IIED claim, even under the narrowing of this cause of action by the Texas Supremes, this has to be it.
          I just wonder whether the fact that this plaintiff has “other viable claims” will be an issue.
          Again, I only took a cursory look.
          I’m sure Ray J is prepared.

          • John P.

            Might it be that the presence of cameras supports the “invasion of privacy” charge, and sending dildos to work and all the other stuff supports the IIED charge? In other words, one could conceivably compartmentalize. It sounds like the TX Supreme Court eliminated the practice of saying one set of facts can be used to establish both IIED and something else, but if you have separate buckets with relevant evidence in each bucket and don’t cross over between buckets of evidence, you’re OK.

            • WhereIsSHE

              You would make an excellent advocate, JP. (As if that needed to be stated!)
              That is what I would imagine Ray J will likely argue. (And perhaps he has caselaw to support that. Like I said, I only looked at the caselaw through the lens of that law review article, because I no longer have access to ALL of LEXIS and WESTLAW now that I am only handling pro bono work from home on my own dime.)

            Yes, and by “that” in my reply I was referring to the review you linked. I didn’t read all of it, I scrolled down to the conclusion and started up from there. But I agree, it is obvious to most of us that emotional distress is very much their intention. I just don’t know how that will be proved or if Texas’ tort reform even allow for it.

    This is epic!! But why don’t more people sue for harassment? I would think that after they escape and are harassed, followed, blackmailed and spied on, they’d turn to the police. Why don’t more people report the abuse? Am I dreaming or is the cult crumbling before my eyes?

    • Spackle Motion

      IIED is incredibly hard to prove and the standard is set rather high (one has to practically witness, first hand, the murder of their own child at the hands of someone with intent to inflict distress).

      What is more telling is the lack of FBI action against the concerted and organized effort to harass critics and using law enforcement to further the harassment. The harassment suffered by Mosey may be criminally actionable and law enforcement does NOTHING.

      • Jeb

        Naive question, this is a civil lawsuit, right?

        If the process uncovers criminal behaviour, how does it become a criminal trial?

        • WhereIsSHE

          1st question:
          Yes. This is a civil lawsuit for injunctive relief in the form of a Restraining Order (which, has been temporarily Granted until a full hearing on the matter can be heard, which is currently scheduled for next Tuesday as far as I recall from reading here earlier today, but which, in the opinion of plaintiff’s counsel, will likely be postponed due to the amount of time the hearing will require–something like 2 days of court time), and then, eventually, for the recovery of monetary damages in the form of a request for compensatory damages (i.e. to compensate the plaintiff for her actual, provable losses, and her pain and suffering), and also a request for exemplary damages (what are commonly referred to as “punitive” damages), i.e a monetary award that is meant to PUNISH to defendants for their wrongful conduct–which typically requires either INTENTIONAL wrongdoing, or “reckless disregard” for the effects of their conduct.

          2nd question:
          It does not necessarily “become” a criminal investigation (let alone a criminal prosecution).
          One can provide what one believes is evidence of a crime to either law enforcement or the appropriate legal authority who would have jurisdiction over the alleged criminal conduct, and then it is up to that authority to pursue it/levy criminal charges.

          • John P.

            Incidentally, the initial TRO sounds like it was granted before the cult knew about the suit. If you go back to the Debbie Cook case in early 2012, you’d find that the cult got a TRO against her (though theirs was a little more sweeping, since it forbade Cook from talking to her husband about the case or even from discussing it with attorneys, which sounds like it is on very think Constitutional ice). So it’s kind of fun to see Miscavige getting back what he put out there previously. And it will be fun to see if Miscavige has the self-control to shut the operation down during the period that the TRO is in effect. It’ll be time for some serious popcorn if he gets caught taking one last little peek from the cameras going forward.

              Not sure how you get a TRO granted against a PARTY TO A SUIT without NOTICE to said party. What would be the point?!
              The court is ORDERING said parties to STOP a very specific set of behaviors, and without notice of said ORDER, they cannot be expected to OBEY. (Isn’t it rich to imagine the reaction?;)
              Plus, the court scheduled a hearing on the granted TRO next Tuesday (even though Ray J tells Tony he believes the hearing will be continued due to the length of time he expects it will take to present).
              I like the idea of Miscavige KNOWING about it and having to feel the pressure of knowing it on his little head (and no, I don’t mean the one between his legs– the size of which I would like to NEVER KNOW!)

              This has got to be some MAJOR F-ING ENTURBULATION for him.

              this comment is EXACTLY why we adore you..

            • John P.

              Sorry, was typing too fast. Apparently, under Texas rules, a TRO can be issued without both parties being present at a hearing for each one to present their side. I don’t know if that’s the case elsewhere, never having been subjected to such a thing. So the suit was filed and a TRO was issued, then the cult was served and they received the TRO, without a chance to contest it beforehand. Apparently, then, there is a rush hearing to turn it into an injunction. I was pointing out how funny it was for the cult to get blindsided by a TRO that they will probably have to sweat to comply with, just as they blindsided Debbie Cook with a fairly bizarre TRO when they filed the case against her early last year.

              Sorry if this comment is no more clear than the previous one; long day here at Global Capitalism HQ and am just about falling over in my chair.

            • WhereIsSHE

              NO! You are CLEAR!!! (Call Jason Beghe!)
              Oh yeah.. one party can get a TRO.. but then the party against whom the TRO is issued has got to get NOTICE of it, because otherwise.. what is the effect of the TRO?
              The cult is now (temporarily) enjoined from engaging in the proscribed behaviors (and hopefully, after the hearing, that temporaryNESS will move up the bridge to a state of greater beingNESS;)
              (OK. I suck at the cult lingo and policy stuff, because every time I start to try to “get” it, my brain threatens to self-implode!)

            • Missionary Kid

              A temporary restraining order is based on the statement of the plaintiff in California. The judge has two business days to decide whether or not to grant it.

              If the judge grants it, all that is necessary for it to go into effect is for the defendant be served by someone other than the plaintiff..

              The temporary restraining order stays in effect until a court the date of a hearing is set when the order is issued. At that hearing, both parties appear, and after hearing the case, the judge may or may not grant a permanent restraining order. The court hearing is within, as I remember it, 3 weeks of the granting of the TRO..

              You can read more about it at: http://fvlc.org/get-help/faq-restraining-orders/

              This is called an ex parte motion and only temporary. The other party’s presence isn’t required. For a permanent injunction the other party’s presence is necessary so that defendents will have an opportunity to respond.

        I have cited this statute many times, and I believe that it is right on point, and should be prosecuted.

        A well known attorney protester asked the local Clearwater FBI to do so and was sloughed off. They were, and are wrong. It is a very important law, which prohibits two or more people from infringing on one’s Constitutional rights.

        Where would we be if you couldn’t practice your religion, or protest because of private individuals’ threats, intimidation and even injury. Yet this goes on and the FBI does nothing.

        The shame is that it does not specifically provide a private civil remedy, but if it were me, I would attempt to do so.

        Here it is again:
        UNITED STATES CODE TITLE 18 – CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
        PART I – CRIMES
        CHAPTER 13 – CIVIL RIGHTS
        § 241. Conspiracy against rights
        If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate
        any inhabitant of any State, Territory, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his
        having so exercised the same…they shall be fined not more than $10,000 or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results, they shall be subject to imprisonment for any term of years or for life.

    • Tory Christman

      Chris, a couple things…at least for me. Hubbard said: “Get them in court, keep them in court, bankrupt them”. So IF you’re going to go after them, a) You’d better have a damn good attorney who gets how deep this shit goes and b) As Spackle Motion explains, many things are difficult to ‘prove’. C) Lastly, due to they hiding behind the curtain of “religion” and our country founded on “Freedom of Religion” (And no, I do NOT think they are, in any way, a religion—but they have that title so far)….plus they not being beyond paying off whomever they have to….well, it just gets tricky. Best to ALL and way to go, Monique!! Tory/Magoo

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        There’s another important factor to remind the new ones here. Statutes of Limitations timing vs Peeling the Scientology Onion timing. It takes sometimes years to rid yourself of the notion that it is a terrible bad thing to report another scientologist to any authority for anything. By that time, statute has passed.

        Also, if someone has very damaging information, that person will be kept busy trying to dodge and survive the likely fair gaming and stalking of that person Until those very statutes of limitiations have passed and don’t think OSA doesn’t know them down to the day and hour.

        • WhereIsSHE

          So true, THDNE…
          But I am hopeful that this, too, will change.

      • WhereIsSHE

        I hear you, Tory, but I think the tides are (finally) turning.
        Pandora’s box has been taken down from the shelf, dusted off, and the opening of it has begun.

        There is no hiding behind the curtain of “religion” on this one.
        They went after Mosey INDIVIDUALLY, and when Marty was out of town, and at her (separate) place of work,(and to and from work), and in her own family.
        There is videographic evidence of it.
        There is no religious exemption that can “SAVE” them now from this extreme, outrageous trail of egregious misconduct.
        This kind of conduct will infuriate a jury, no matter what they believe about the sanctity of religion.
        What the cult did here was, simply put, UNAMERICAN.

        • Tory Christman

          I hope you are right….WhereisSHE. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve lived through “They can NOT get out of *this*” ((Key one Lisa McPherson))…only to find out they DID.
          I hope you’re right—I HOPE (and I think we are) in a new place where their old tricks
          and abuses just will NOT work. Time shall tell….Tick Tock :)

  • Bob Gravlin

    And Tom Cruise is a member of that? Is there a way we can send this info to his fan websites?

    • Spackle Motion

      Good luck with that. Any negative information about his cult is considered ‘entheta’ and immediately discounted as coming from the enemy. Then you will be included in the Internet ‘fringe’ group of religious bigots.

      That’s how cults work.

      • N. Graham

        I think you meant “unemployed” Internet ‘fringe group’ of religious bigots.

    • Missionary Kid

      His fans have drunk deeply at the well of his awsomeness. They are true believers in Tommy.
      The best you can do (and believe me, it helps) is to spread the word about what an evil group he’s a member of.

      Years ago, people just thought $cientology was a bit weird. Now, that it’s practices are being exposed, you’re starting to see the word “cult” associated with it. If you mention $cientology now, and people go, “Ewwww.” We have to keep it up so everyone feels that way.

  • Cunning Stunt

    The obsession with unemployed bloggers marches on! (Sorry if this was already posted, I didn’t see it.) Church spokeswoman Karin Pouw said Wednesday that the church had not been served with the lawsuit. But she added: “Based on your questions, the complaint filed in Texas is nothing more than a pathetic get-rich scheme cooked up by unemployed blogger Marty Rathbun, a self-admitted suborner of perjury who is now resorting to using his wife in an attempt to extort money from the church.” http://www.tampabay.com/news/scientology/in-texas-lawsuit-judge-orders-scientology-and-its-leader-to-stop-harassment/2137671

    • WhereIsSHE

      Yeah, right. “Based on your questions…blahblahblahhhh.”
      They are not going to admit to having been “served”, but there is NO DOUBT that they have received it.
      (Proper service of process is required for the suit to move forward, procedurally speaking. But based on the fact that Pouw even commented on the suit –and this brief content of her response to it– says to me that they have RECEIVED the Complaint and have already had meetings about how to HANDLE IT, at least in the “PR” sense.)

  • DamOTclese2

    I wonder, how does John Travolta feel about all this invasion of personal space, perpetrated by his “Pope”

  • Mat Pesch

    Well done Mosey. I know you were left with no choice. You can only try to avoid a stalker and a bully for so long before you have to hold your ground. Not just for yourself but for all the other victims. People give their life savings to this “church” with the promise that it will be used to help people and society itself. Miscavige then uses the money as a slush fund to dramatize his personal, never ending, hate trips.

    The “church” of Scientology has NEVER won a single jury trial in its existence. Society has no trouble seeing insanity and criminal activity when it is presented to them. Apparently many “scientologists” have trouble with this.

    Hopefully this will help bring peace to your life.

  • Bella Legosi

    lol so I googled “scientology” in the google news browser and came upon this………I am assuming this is old news for many of you, but thought I would link it……this gave me the giggles:
    “We are enthusiastically preparing for both the Opening of our Flag Building and the Annual International Association of Scientologists Anniversary Celebration,” she wrote in an email. “These milestone events mark a period of unprecedented expansion for our Church. The opening of the Flag Building is especially significant to us and to the advancement of our religion. The entire world of Scientology is looking forward to this with great excitement.”

    It also says that 10,000 are set to attend and they will have seating for up to 8,000. This is prolly the only time I will have wished to be in Florida! Well, unless Bury and her family want to adopt a 30 year old!! :P Anyways, the language used by the spokesperson is the same crap they said about Portland’s RE opening. Although, if the “church” actually created a welcoming atmosphere for the “wog” public, maybe the 2,500 who were supposed to attend would have, not the measly 700 who actually did. Ahhhh Oct is beginning to look like a solid month!

    I am wondering if they haven’t bled the lamb completely dry and are only opening this shady as f**k building to take some pressure off the Garcia class action civil suite. It would sound like these weasels to say, “Lookie! See! We are not fraudulent! We opened our Mecca……errr Supah Powerz…….oh I mean Flag Building! And we totally didn’t waste one penny over the 20 years it was being built!”

    Which begs the question………why does it take 20 years to build a “church”? Captains of industry, entertainment, and gambling have under taken far more complex and expensive structures and it didn’t take no 20 years to build them. Oh…….yeah I forgot…..The “Mecca” is just a huge money laundering fraud machine! Silly, Bella! She has been away from the Bunker too long! I wonder what crap Little Boots will pull out of that inky darkness that is his anus to make up for the guaranteed shortfall this will create once Supah Powerz is opened?!

    Hey kids! Look at this quote from Mike Rinder it sounds like this is going to go all the way!

    “There is no question it will be ugly. But that part is going to be very one sided.

    It will be a long fight as you know there is not going to be any confidential settlement….”

    • Rita Gregory

      Rinder also says….”I am saying it takes two side to settle. Mosey is the PLAINTIFF
      here. She is going into this with eyes open and well aware of what
      litigation with the RCS is like. She has a formidable team of lawfirms
      with experienced and knowledgeable lawyers. Debbie Cook’s position was
      very different. She was ambushed and she was a defendant with a lot to
      potentially lose. This is a carefully considered and planned legal
      action. None of this takes away from her bravery in stepping up to the
      plate. I dont care who you are, going into litigation with a wealthy and
      ruthless opponent is no walk in the park.

      But if I had to guess, I would say she will have a much better night’s sleep tonight that He Who Shall Not Be Named.

      Believe me, there are a LOT more withholds to be discovered — but
      plenty of them have been touched on simply with the filing of the
      complaint.”

  • Still_On_Your_Side

    Right out of the box Miscavige/Pouw insulted Monique and labeled her complaint an extortion by her husband. Accordingly, the day after a restraining order is granted in order to protect a woman from repeated acts of harrassment and abuse, Miscavige shows the world how stupid he is by throwing mysogynist insults at her. Ray Jeffrey knows his stuff. If Miscavige argues he didn’t harrass Monique, there is ample evidence to prove him a liar, including his own future deposition. If Miscavige argues it wasn’t intentional infliction of emotional distress, he is admitting he did something. Based on the very dumb statement made today by Miscavige/Pouw, I have no doubt that this case will expose, for the world to see, the true nasty ugliness of David Miscavige.

      Of the many others, you can tell who knows a lot about the cult, but you can also tell who doesn’t (and how freaked out and incensed they are that a “church” would engage in such abhorrent behaviors.)

    Saw a request for a report from the TomKat Project and haven’t seen one yet, so I will oblige, even if it’s slightly OT on this post. Show was hilarious. Hilarious. You could tell that there were some real Sci-watchers in the audience from what was making people laugh, too. I laughed so hard that I got myself wedged between my seat and the one in front of me. The acting was superb, two of the actors just played Tom and Katie, the playwright was on-stage and part of the show, and the other 4 actors played a pile of roles and did all of them well. The guy who played Katie’s dad (on top of many roles) was a consistent favorite among Bunkerites. The woman who managed to somehow pull off Bert Fields AND Oprah Winfrey and about 6 other people, without you even having to guess who she was portraying, was my favorite. Really, how many actresses could pull off playing an older male lawyer? :-D The woman who played Katie looked almost nothing like her yet thoroughly managed to become her. The casting for Tom Cruise was great, the guy didn’t necessarily look just like him or anything either, but he nailed that weird pattern of speech TC is know for. I talked to the woman playing Katie and asked how much footage she watched to get the part right, she admitted it was hundreds of hours and even told me which works I should bother watching (since I’ve never actually seen Katie at work). Everyone involved really did their jobs, they studied and worked hard and nailed every character, as far as I could tell. The best part of the whole show, though, was a sign that said something to the effect of, “This is verbatim,” that was held up by each person in the cast at some point while they were literally quoting something and made you realize all over again that truth truly is stranger than fiction. When they all took the stage, I had my doubts. It took one line to completely hook me into the weird world that they were portraying.

    If you have any sort of chance, go see it. I don’t want to spoil the experience any further. I love theater and have see some really great plays. I have no idea if this would be quite so funny to people who didn’t at least have a passing interest in Scn or these characters, but it made me laugh harder than anything but A Behanding in Spokane, and that’s an unfair comparison because no one is funnier than Christopher Walken. lol

    Of course, the night was topped off by meeting Tony and a bunch of local Bunkerites, which made it go from a fun night at the theater to simply amazing! What a great bunch of people (not that it was a surprise) and what a great night of overtaxing my already-sore-from-laughing muscles after the show.

    Thanks, all. What a night! Great meeting everyone who was there!!! Thanks again, Tony! So glad I got to see this show.

I’m guessing we were a pretty obvious group after the show, since I managed to find everyone. lol

      • CraftLass

        Thanks! Gotta say, the lines written by the playwright were so, so funny and you’d get all sucked into the conjecture. Then that sign would suddenly pop up and you’d remember. :-) They captured some classic moments we’ve all watched hundreds of times, but also a few things I knew nothing about (since I don’t generally read about movies or actors). The familiar ones made it clear these actors were nailing the reenactments, which added a lot of punch to the unfamiliar ones. :-)

        The way he managed to highlight facts/actual events while delving way into the gossip mill was fantastic. You knew which was which and thus you could leave behind any disbelief and just dive into what was on stage wholeheartedly. And laugh. And laugh some more.

    Half the fun is going to be in finding out who actually pays for this harassment. If it turns out that the criminal organisation known as the “church” of $cientology is behind it and that the harassment is criminal, how could that possibly be compatible with the income of said organisation being tax free?

    I finally came to my senses (and returned into my own non-suppressive valence).

    I would like to apologize to the millions of scientologists, who freely reading all kinds of scientology-related news on the internet with their morning coffee, for any comments of mine that broke their ARC or made them PTS/SP!

    Thank you Dear Down Voter! It finally impinged upon me! Off to do my Doubt Formula (A to E Steps)!

    And to you Internet SP people – if you won’t see me posting in the next 24 hours – I probably re-joined staff
    or may be even joined the sea org.

    Many called – few are chosen.

    Much Love, Dodo.

      Big win for me. I postulated all the down votes and I now postulate that my KR on you will arrive faster than your application for an SO contract. You will receive no hats.

      • DodoTheLaser

        Your postulates stick. You must join me so we can clear this planet and proceed to Target 2.
        P.S. I have a small collection of baseball hats. Can I at least keep those? Please?

        • DodoTheLaser

          And I just up voted my own comment. That’s Power!
          (But suppressive Disqus won’t show it.)

          • Jvm3

            Yeah it doesn’t actually count it I guess. Just tried and it was gone on refresh.

            • DodoTheLaser

              Yeah, Internet sucks. You try to up vote your own awesome comment and it won’t let you.
              Such a false non-report and a non-stat! Disqus sucks and so is Google!

            • phronsie

              Whenever I read “ack your comm” I think of Bill the Cat making that hairball face and hack in “Ack!” Thank you Bloom County!

        • Jvm3

          I ack your comm on planetary clearing, but during that cycle I had a cog. You like tigers and baseball. The Detroit Tigers are all SPs, contaminated with entheta and they may be a front for Big Psych.

          • DodoTheLaser

            Thanks for duplicating my comm. I would like to ack your cog – “Awesome”.

            I don’t give a shit about baseball, just some hats. I like them black or navy.

            The only tigers I like are when they are cats.

            I agree though – the wogs are SPs fronting for Big Psych/SMERSH, etc.

            You are so theta! Where are you on the Bridge?

            • Jvm3

              Ack to your comm acking prior cog. Black hats and navy hats plus cats and tiger cats are always case gain and potential wins. On the bridge, I was strictly horizontal, as I thought that’s how bridges are engineered to move from A to B. My DSA rep has since informed me that this is all MU and I am supposed to be moving upwards. So now I am looking for a ladder.

            • DodoTheLaser

              Very cool!
              The Home Depot had some awesome ladders on sale last week!

            • Jvm3

              Home Depot is fine, but I’m focused on postulating one of these:

              It’s usually a hassle climbing down from hardware store ladders.

            • aquaclara

              Just interrupting this funny string to say that the second shift is ON FIRE this morning! LMFAO.

    • Unex Skcus

      “Dear Down Voter”… may you have a Tory Christman moment in your life.

      PS: Dodo, I added a down vote, so you wouldn’t feel lonely.

      • DodoTheLaser

        Thanks. I down voted you too. It’s like we all coming to our sense finally! So cool!

  • Unex Skcus

    Gotta say, that is a beautiful pic of Mrs Monique Rathbun. Yes, I’ve had a few beers now…

    • DodoTheLaser

      Beers or not, Mosey is a very good looking woman with a wonderful heart.
      It was nice to meet her in person.

  • Krew13

    Do down voters get a half-ack from LRH for every down vote they make?

    Remember, Sciloons. It’s all about KFC. It’s just good chicken. Now I’m off to watch my BD of T2 on my LCD with THX, before going to an AMC to watch a movie in 3D, followed by a meal at KFC which I’ll upgrade to XL.

  • disqus_0MHNN90X5s

    Major corporations having undue influence on Police (including UK Met Anti Terror force), courts etc for private agenda’s. watch this video for real life and current situation of Ian Puddick in London.

    • media_lush

      This has absolutely nothing to do with this site.

  • Jeb Burton

    FYI, just picked up my TBT in the driveway, actually in the flowerbed, but thats another story, and the Mosey article is on the front page, but below the fold, so maybe the scions wont have to empty the paper boxes downtown today.

  • Sidney18511

    Maybe tony and yhe bunkeretts had too much fun last night? Sleep late mr. O.

  • 1subgenius

    It would seem that a major hurdle will be connecting the harassment to CoS and Miscavige.
    It would seem that Bert Leahy might be rather helpful in this regard.

  • tetloj

    To Observer…….your chickens coming home to roost shoop is on WWP and ESMB. You’re rocking this subculture!

  • tetloj

    Sloat sounds like some evil Dickensian character….evil law firm Sloat and Drake

  • pronoia

    Wow. Over 1000 comments – some of you guys were obviously making some noise last night. Unfortunately I missed all the fun but was otherwise occupied on McDougal Street at an entheta filled venue with a crowd of Supressive wogs and a few bonanza fide SPs drinking Guinness until after midnight.

    If anyone from the TomKat Project is reading these comments please pass along this important info Scratcbread. Do not leave town without a big breakfast there & get the best donuts in NYC at Dough at the corner of Franklin and Lafayette.

    • Observer

      That’s right, just rub it in, you degraded being!

      ;-)

      • Minion Gayle

        It’s just downright cruel, isn’t it?

  • shasha40

    This is ridiculous, it’s like school, miss 1 day and you’ve got tons to catch up on . {{You guys need to get a life ! }} Oh, Tiny dick, I don’t believe you have enough fingers for all the holes you need to plug in your dike , but it’ll be fun watching you try. I also believe whatever you do will be an Epic Fail , oh Joy !

    • Minion Gayle

      I feel your pain. My 4-year old decked another kid at school and got sent home for the day, so instead of doing my afternoon check, I was busy explaining “it doesn’t matter if he pushed you, you don’t hit him with a shovel” over and over to my {Pretty Little Princess.}

      • aquaclara

        Oh, don’t you love this time of year?! My 19 year old has been “packing up” to go back to school all day. I say packing up in quotes, since there is little evidence that anything has moved today. I just looked, and other than laundry in the wash, his room still looks like a train wreck, and the garage still only has electronics, food and sports equipment ready to go. It’s been a productive 8 hours, I can tell.
        Oh, 4 WAS stressful, too. 9. 14. 17. 18. 19….
        :)

        • Minion Gayle

          Yes, I’m quite {looking forward} to 12-16.

      • shasha40

        bol, damn shame we have to have other duties besides our watching the Fall of $cientology.

  • WildaBeast

    See, THIS IS WHY I CAN NEVER LEAVE THE BUNKER!
    I miss things like this!
    This is absofantabulously awesome – not that the Rathbuns have been being stalked from here to, literally, hell’s half-acre, but that the {church} was bloody dense enough to include Monique in their activities.
    They have no excuse, no paper-thin justification. She’s never had a damned thing to do with them; the only thing she ever did was marry Marty Rathbun, and that 6 years after he left the {church}. If they’d been stalking, surveilling (apparently that’s not a word, but it should be; it’s properly constructed!), and harassing Marty specifically, and Monique just happened to be there and got messed up from it, the Rathbuns could never win a case. But NO – the Zombie Brigade (Squirrel Busters) somehow got Monique in their sights *as an individual*, and have been doing their best to make life hell for a woman who never spoke out against them, never ran away from them, and as far as I know isn’t even an Indie and thus isn’t involved in using Squirrel Tech!
    I hope she wins an 8-figure settlement. I hope she gets a permanent restraining order against any current member of the {church}. And I hope the {church} ends up with so much egg on its face from this that it ends up being mistaken for an omelette.

    • JustDiane

      I think Monique deserves every penny she can squeeze out of this cult. However, I kind of hope it’s not a settlement, I would love to see this go to a jury so every illegal act of terrorism this cult has done comes out in court and made public.

  • ElDroneHubbub

    Karen Pouw:

    “… the complaint filed in Texas is nothing more than a pathetic get-rich scheme cooked up by unemployed blogger Marty Rathbun, a self-admitted suborner of perjury who is now resorting to using his wife in an attempt to extort money from the church.”

    That doesn’t sound defensive or over-the-top at all.

    • aquaclara

      I know.

      {….totally puts to bed ANY thought that the cult has something in for the Rathbuns} (added sarcasm font).
      HSDYHTB (How stupid do you have to be.)

  • California

    I think that this TRO may be giving many other people subjected to this kind of behavior from SCN good ideas of how to proceed next……….

    Can getting Joel to take down the RFW page be discussed now?

  • Rebecca Young

    now that a STRONG FEMALE for you! Go Monique. Don’t take any crap from those pests. Fight for your right and your privacy.

  • Madora Pennington

    Thanks for such great reporting on Scientology, Tony. You’re very witty and funny, and you have quite a Scientology education, for someone who was never in an org! Really enjoyed the “Village Voice – Top 25 People Crippling Scientology.” We’ll send you a donation;

  • Bob Gravlin

    My ???? Why did it take so long for them to ask for an injunction? In a normal part of the world not of CO$ making a week of that kind of behavior and harassment would be enough for an ex parte and most likely criminal charges could be filed based on threats of violence, peace disturbance . , etc.

  • Spiderpope

    While i have mixed feelings about the Rathburns, no one who has seen their videos can possibly deny they are being harassed. Good luck to them in their courtcase.

  • Deeana

    Oh wow, it is hard to believe that surveillance cameras mounted in trees on a vacant lot remained functional for any time at all! I’ve read where unattended cameras in trees or anywhere else don’t really do very well. It’s always either electrical spikes or roving teenagers vandalizing the darn things is what I’ve read.
    I can tell you for a fact as a member of my local HOA, we mounted outdoor cameras ON THE SIDE of a nearby townhouse in order to film graffiti artists damaging property. Somehow the little buggers would creep up unseen on the camera from below it and spray paint the lens! Ruins the damn camera, and eventually you just don’t want to pay the money for another new one……How they kept doing it, we do not know.

  • Blue Mann

    The ‘Church’ of $cientology is a dangerous cult that needs to disappear by whatever means possible.
