It would appear a moment of reckoning is upon the COB.
For years he has managed to avoid being served in any suit that has named him.
Last night, the plaintiff’s lawyers in the Baxter/Paris case filed a motion to have the court find that Miscavige has been avoiding service and should be held in default.
He has been able to get away with his shenanigans for years, but I suspect the time for playing games with the court system is over (at least in this case). At the hearing last month, Judge Barber was not impressed with even the concept of this circus. When he reads the lengths Miscavige has gone in pretending that he is unaware of the legal case filed against him (which is what “service” is all about, ensuring someone has due notification of the proceeding), I suspect he will not appreciate the gamesmanship, nor the wasting of his time on something that should be straightforward.
The motion is detailed and self explanatory: Plaintiffs Motion for Order Declaring Defendant David Miscavige Served with Process in Default
There are a few things in there that are especially noteworthy, taken from signed affidavits of Lyman Spurlock, Mark Ingber, Anne Joasem (Marty Rathbun’s ex-wife) and Greg Wilhere promoting how “hands on” and directly involved Mr. Miscavige is and how he is on top of legal matters to protect scientology. Completely at odds with the idea he hasn’t got a clue what is going on. The lawyers representing RTC even claim they don’t know his address or how to contact him! Neither do any security guards at the doors of numerous scientology buildings in Clearwater and Los Angeles, yet he lives and works in scientology buildings exclusively (as a Sea Org member he does not own his own home or have an outside office). Every security guard in every building in Clearwater knows where the COB is every minute of the day (the same when he is in Los Angeles or at the Int Base or if he ever goes back to St Hill).
The farce of the invisible COB, he who shall not be named, is I suspect, soon to be ended.
The tantrums have no doubt already begun….
