    Eric M. Lieberman pops up in Headley's case

    It's not terribly surprising to see old hand Eric M. Lieberman of the Rabinowitz, Boudin firm show up in this case, though I haven't seen him in a little bit.

    He's filed a pro hac vice application, along with a proposed order, which has been granted.

    In legalese, pro hac vice means that a lawyer who isn't a member of the bar of a certain jurisdiction affiliates himself with a lawyer who is, makes a motion, and is allowed to practice before a court in that state in a single case. That lawyer is Harold M. Brody of Proskauer Rose.

    Bringing Eric into the case demonstrates how apprehensive & scared DM is about this case and what it can do to his global kingdom.

    Eric's a top flight attorney that has represented the church for 30 years and had his paws in some of the biggest issues involving the cult: Lawrence Wollersheim, Lisa McPherson, the IRS issue, etc.

    Eric's a pro at filing needless motions, calling for endless delays, and pushing appeals. If Marc eventually wins his lawsuit, expect it to be in the appeals process (much like the Wollersheim case) for at least a decade, if not more.

    Eric is a pro at appeals litigation.

    Sounds like multiple lawsuits by multiple people is the solution.

    The Rabinowitz firm used to represent the copyrights of the CCCP - Russia before the break up. When you used to buy a recording of Shastokovich, the royalty money would go to Rab and Bodine.. They also repped the ACP, The American Communist Party.

    AND Still rep Scientology

    they are believed to be the ones who actually write many of the briefs in Scientology's copyright cases, including RTC vs Lerma and still represent Scientology.

    And yes, this means scientology is worried, cause they were $400 an hour a decade ago.

    Jesus Christ! Looks like it'll be a case of who runs out of money first, and I'm guessing it won't be Marc.

    Did I not say, as recently as this weekend, that we should start playing the Soviet Anthem outside of the Orgs? This just proves it.

    hrm, needs moar exes to file similar suits to help speed along the death-by-a-thousand-cuts.

    hey, it worked on CAN and the IRS. hey, davey, how's it feel to be undone by your own tactics?

    Re: Eric M. Lieberman pops up in Headley's case

    Specifically, he's their First Amendment go-to guy. In Wollersheim, his bag was that Fair Game is somehow constitutionally protected as religious freedom, similarly, in Lisa McPherson, that being a religion means it's okay to go around murdering people, etc. In this case, he will probably be arguing that being a religion means Scientology doesn't have to pay wages to employees. If it gets litigated all the way out, this argument will meet with the same success as Scientology's other arguments of this sort, but the hope is that Headley and BvS run out of money first or can be bullied into a settlement.

    No, he is the evil go-to guy.

    Floyd Abrams is the top expert.

    So first amendment and appeals, I flunked social studies, but didn't CoS put this in front of the 9th Circ. court and isn't the only place they can appeal be the USSC ? And wouldn't it be unlikely that the USSC would hear the case because they have already wasted at least 1 "slot" and maybe 2 (Sklars) on them in the last 20 years. (they only hear 12 cases a year or something right ?)

    Does this guy replace Moxon ?

    Re: Eric M. Lieberman pops up in Headley's case

    According to a source, Moxon was essentially thrown under the bus by the cult's Century City law firm after Marc testifed in deposition to firm example's of Scientology's human right's abuses, which caught the non-Scilon lawyers off-guard and caused them concern.

    You can be sure, however, that Moxon will be ever present & advising the attorneys in the case since Moxon oversees the litigation budget & funds.
