Judge Pennick lifted the injunction following brilliant arguments by Twils (John Merrett), our attorney and Bruce Howie, Minton's attorney. Mary Story of Scientology was our star witness. She testified that the injunction should be kept in place because she didn't want the LMT people to harass Scientology. On cross examination by John Merrett as to what exactly the harassing behavior was, she said she didn't want Scientologists to see the picket signs. John brought this up in his closing argument, pointing out to the judge that what Mary Story was really saying was that Scientology wants to halt free speech if it is critical of Scientology.
In due course, the transcript will be posted.

Clearwater is still an occupied city but today another small step was taken to liberate our city.
