    "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.

    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$.

    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.

  10. Given that the objection was overruled I don't think the Judge saw the logic either.

    This is sooo good. F5F5F5F5F5

    Hearing deserves its own thread for more exposure, IMO. (edit: there we go!)

    From VV:

    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?
  15. Noting the objection and will let them get to the connection? No jury so the Judge can always decide later it is irrelevant.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Was this what happened to Flow Barnett, dead mother of missing Shelly Miscavige?
