I know *mine* is bad. Samuel D. Rosen, Helena K. Kobrin, Thomas R. Hogan, Eric M. Lieberman, and their paralegals thinks it is really, *really* bad as they keep complaining about it more than just frequently. In fact our next hearing on how bad it is will be on May 15, 2000 at 9 a.m. in the court of the Honorable Jeremy Fogel, United States District Court, 280 South First Street, San Jose, California 95113.
Keith Wyatt, maybe you can help me with my latest motion. Do you see anything inaccurate about the following paragraph? I don't.
"On March 21, 1996, Grady Ward was served suit in Arcata, California alleging copyright infringement and trade secret misappropriation. (Ex. 4. at Bates 100177). After rounds of accelerated discovery conducted by the plaintiff RTC, the litigation arm of the Church of Scientology, including three separate depositions of Grady Ward, subpoenas, depositions and demand for records from his previous employer, his wife Felicity, seven different internet service providers, police departments, phone company records, and even seizure and lengthy search of his computer archives by a special master, the trade secret allegation was dismissed with prejudice (Ex. 4. at Bates 100178) and RTC's motion for summary judgment on the issue of copyright infringement was denied. (Ex. 4. at Bates 100179)."
I have little doubt that the criminal cult can successfully frame people as it almost succeeded in the case of Paulette Cooper and in an almost identical circumstances to the Mark Bunker allegations in Chicago, Keith Henson in Los Angeles.
From "Fair Game": Leveling the Playing Field in Scientology Litigation J. Kumar, 16 Rev. Litig. 747 (1997):
"Perhaps the most outrageous example is the case of a journalist, Paulette Cooper, who penned a critical book on Scientology in 1971. Cooper was subsequently indicted in 1973 of threatening to bomb the Church, but eventually was exonerated in 1977 when the FBI uncovered evidence that the Church forged the threatening letters at issue. n49"
From Dick Cleek, 18 May 1995
60 Minutes - Paulette Cooper
MW Mike Wallace
PC Paulette Cooper
"MW: For instance, in 1980 we interviewed Paulette Cooper. She had written a book critical of Scientology, so to try to silence her, the so-called Guardian's Office of the Church cooked up a scheme to steal Cooper's stationary and make it appear that she had sent the church two bomb threats, a crime she did not commit.
PC: And as a result I was arrested. I was indicted on three counts. I faced up to 15 years in jail if I was convicted. The whole ordeal fighting these charges took eight months. It cost me $19,000 in legal fees. I went into such a depression, I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, I couldn't write. I went down to 83 pounds. Finally I took and passes a sodium pentathol, or truth serum, test and the government dropped the charges against me in 1975.
MW: Another church plot against Cooper was called Operation Freak Out. Intended to get her placed in a mental institution until she stopped writing about Scientology. Church officials even launched a graffiti campaign against Cooper.
PC: They put my name up on walls in New York City where I live, with my phone number, so people would call me. They put my name on pornographic mailing lists, so that I would get all kinds of disgusting mail. You see, for years I was saying that these types of things were going on and people thought 'Well, what is she talking about, this is a church?' And finally, after eleven years I see that everything I said was true and that Scientology turned out to be worse than anything I ever said or even imagined."
From CoS v. Time-Warner, 903 F. Supp. 637 (1995):
"3. Journalists, Doctors, Lawyers, and Judges Framed, Beaten Up, or Threatened with Death
In light of Behar's beliefs regarding his own experiences with Scientology, the [*643] admitted harassment of Paulette Cooper by Scientology's Guardian's Office (which has been disbanded), and the other sources relied on by Behar, see Behar Aff. PP 85-93, the Court finds no evidence that Behar made the statement regarding journalists with actual malice. Similarly, there are not "obvious reasons to doubt" Behar's sources for his statement regarding doctors, lawyers, and judges. See St. Amant, 390 U.S. at 732. Although Behar does not have convincing evidence to link CSI with many of the strange incidents befalling these groups of people in conflict with Scientology, that fact alone does not allow a reasonable jury to conclude that Behar entertained doubts as to the veracity of his statement that these incidents are linked to CSI. Compare id. at 732 (good faith unlikely where story is fabricated by defendant, based on his imagination, or based on [**13] unverified anonymous telephone call). Therefore, the Court finds that no reasonable jury could find by clear and convincing evidence that Time published the above statement with actual malice."
