"Scientology surrounds the Alamo!"
Yeah, that'll play well in Texas.
Well, seems like she's rather going down the freedom or religion path. She's throwing the "we're soooo religious" card right back in their face.
In court she said that she didn't understand that the money was part of the deal. She said she thought it was a gift, not part of the contract.
Don't think I saw this posted yet
Hope Mark is out:
She listed some of what she had seen:
• A manager, Mark Ginge Nelson, was made to lick a bathroom floor clean because "he dared to say he disagreed" with abusive treatment of other church officials.
Now that's a new one!
Good Xenu, this cult is insane!
Cook had no money and no medical insurance. She needed the money to pay for medical treatment. Co$ knows this and it will come out in court soon. Waiting for the counter suit against Co$.
This is fucking awesome.
They are now talking about the SP Hole in court.
OK this is messed up:3:04 pm. Ray Jeffrey's turn to question his client, Debbie Cook. He's cuing up the same Eliot Abelson video from 2007.
Jeffrey is asking questions that lay the ground for what the videotape doesn't show -- that she was held against her will at the Hacienda Garden Apartments in Clearwater.
Spencer objects, and says that even if there was duress -- which he does not admit -- it would have been taken care of by the money she accepted. Wow.
Tanner overrules his objection. Jeffrey continues, now talking about the security at the Hacienda Garden, motion detectors, etc.
So their lawyer is saying that the money would have made up for the duress, but by accepting the money they had to give up their rights to free speech, is it just me that doesn't see the logic in their lawyer's statements or is there anyone else that doesn't see it either.
Given that the objection was overruled I don't think the Judge saw the logic either.
Blackmailing is protected under the religious freedom act.
This is sooo good. F5F5F5F5F5
Hearing deserves its own thread for more exposure, IMO. (edit: there we go!)
I haz a cofuze: If the objection was sustained that Miscavige's relation to Cook was not established, how is it the lawyer was allowed to continue discussing Miscavige?
Noting the objection and will let them get to the connection? No jury so the Judge can always decide later it is irrelevant.
Did someone say popcorn??????
I think so too. I think starting here https://whyweprotest.net/community/...new-years-eve-email.99568/page-5#post-2049983
Do you agree? If so I'll report the thread for forum mod action.
Edit: I reported thread with suggestion for split at post #180.
too bad I am at work right now, otherwise I would be eating some popcorn.
Question: Now that Cook has made all kinds of allegation of abuse, will the Scientology corporation bring in an army of rebuttal witnesses to claim that it's all lies? The witnesses having of course been trained in Hubbard's TRL routine in how to lie in court.
Ummm - don't speak Anon! LOL - but if it's LIVE updates you want of all the dirt Debbie is giving (and she's giving ALL of it) then that link gives you everything you want
There will be a crew of professional liars all drilled on making themselves look REALLY stupid. I'm fucking off again now as earlier requested. Just wanted to give you some popcorn and caek.
You can still follow it on twitter:
stay for the fun!
I agree this court case needs its own thread.
I'm still watching and I'll pop back if I have any more information to share xxx
Live feed. Ask and ye shall receive.
I will move the relevant posts from the church-of-scientology-sues-longtime-clearwater-leader-over-new-years-eve-email thread asap, in the meantime please post updates here. TIA
OK Then I'll post the twitter link on here. This is an up to the minute live feed on all the nasty dirty cult secrets Debbie Cook has decided to let out of the bag:
It's harder to lie on the stand than you think. Liars are always caught on little details. Also, if there is more than one false witness testifying for Scientology, they are likely to contradict each other. People often think that "your word against mine" brings a case to a deadlock. It doesn't. Judges have full authority to chose who is the more credible witness. So if your word makes no sense and you've proven yourself as an evasive witness, then your word is worth less than mine.
funny comment in that twitter feed, with retort by tikk
Don't forget that this is just the TRO hearing. The actual suit case will be like going from watching on an iPhone to an IMAX Cinesphere.
The comments seem to be mostly scilons. I say we have a few moments of fun
epic twitter's blog, nice article http://radio.woai.com/pages/michaelboard.html
give him some click love
Cool. Liars lying under oath. This is getting better.
Michael Board @MikeBoard1200 22m Also wrote, I'll take whatever steps to get out, even if it means slitting my wrists. #Scientology
Was this what happened to Flow Barnett, dead mother of missing Shelly Miscavige?
How did this get overlooked?

Lawyer: "Mrs. Cook was beaten, she was degraded. She was made to watch the torture, degradation and beatings of others. Not just one or two."
