    Might have been thinking of EnRon Hubbard?

    Just got confirmation that our favorite ex-scilon in Québec, Jean Paul Dubreuil, will be interviewed live on France 2 at 19h00 in France or 15h00 eastern time. There will be four of them answering questions, not sure if they are all ex-scilons though.

    Out of the seven, one is named Rosenberg and another one is dead.

    I'm no expert, but Monsieur Rosenberg doesn't seem to be at the top of the tone scale.

    SWEET !

    Scientologists always go for the hands why is that ? Ron Savelo went for the hands with shawn L., Tommy Gorman got hit in the hand, I think it was Mike In Plymoth got sent to the hospital when the guy went for his hands... there are more Why do they always go for the hands ?

    Well, you could say that he is using Tone 40 and controlling this environment. Maybe they could make a heroic statue out of this moment when he wins the case ..... I mean, when they lose the case and get the "martyr" treatment in the Scientology PR.

    He never has been. He is one of the Scilons who fair gamed my businesses out of existence in 1991-93.
    Who are the other defendants??

    I gave a short live interview during a news broadcast by Friends 24 of Paris earlier this afternoon. It was a broadcast in English.

    My condolonces on ever having had any dealings with this miserable man. He looks angry, real angry. That look is contagious, wouldn't you say so Tommy Davis? Get used to it, your house of cards is finally coming undone everywhere. Karma is so unfair, i pray that look is indicative of the way this case goes for these unconscionable scamming pricks.

    Dat ugly bastard is wide open for a right cross to put him out of his misery. So much for the Scientology hand technique, leads to a face-fail, which also seems to have been a horrible birthmark for this complete douchebag.

    Re: French trial: the media

    Here are some (incomplete) details pieced together from press coverage.

    The trial is expected to last from Mon. May 25 to Wed. June 17, 2009. Today, May 25, 2009, Jean-Pierre Brard, member of the Orientation Council of MIVILUDES, testified as expert witness. Lawyer Olivier Morice asserted that Scientology tried at the last minute to obtain withdrawal of the complaints in exchange for large sums, but that these offers were refused. Defense lawyer Alexis Gublin argued that an organization which wishes to join the civil parties, UNADFI (National Union of Associations for the Defense of Families and Individuals who are Victims of Sects) should be disqualified; the decision will be delivered at the same time as the verdict of the trial.

    Investigating judge: Jean Christophe Hullin

    Presiding judge: Sophie-Hélène Château

    Lawyers for the defendants:
    Patrick Maisonneuve
    Alexis Gublin

    • Max Barbault, employer of Nelly Reziga, alleged to have given her a personality test and obliged her to take a communication course, before firing her. It was revealed during today's proceedings that he is now deceased.
    • Four other individuals.
    • Association spirituelle de l'Eglise de Scientologie
    • SEL (Scientologie espace liberté) bookstore

    Re: French trial: the media

    But not at first, which is why they try it. Sure, they can silence dozens or more with money and/or threats and harassment, but what happens when they face those who will not be cowed by threats, beaten by harassment, or swayed by their blood money? The answer is now playing in a Parisian courtroom. David Miscavige, you brought it in, using the tech the way Lafayette Ronald Hubbard intended.
