This is a brief partial update on the Claire Headley vs. RTC and CSI case as of October 2009.

This update covers the filing of one document in the case. Any more information to be released at this point re the case will likely be done by Marc or Claire as they deem relevant.

First of all, both Marc's and Claire's cases have been set for jury trail in November 2010.

A document recently filed in the case summarizing what the case is about, the main issues and the current state of the case can be found at the following link:

http://www.scribd.co...-Rule-26-Report

Of note, is the following from the filing:

from section D:

"Similarly, Plaintiff contends that not only is the business nature of RTC and CSI relevant, inurement to the boss is also relevant. This would include, in Plaintiff’s view, that the driving goal is to make money and that the wealth of the Scientology enterprise inures to the benefit of its sole leader, David Miscavige. Plaintiff submits that the financial power, significant salary, hidden income, and benefits of running the Scientology empire show the commercial nature of the enterprise and that it is the personal business of Mr. Miscavige. Defendant presumably disagrees".

from section J:

"DISCOVERY PLAN
Plaintiff plans to take the depositions of David Miscavige, Shelly Miscavige, and the depositions of witnesses disclosed by defendant or suggested by documents produced in discovery.
Plaintiff will seek financial records of defendants including records of sales, license fees, trade secret agreements, contract work, salaries, and inurement to David Miscavige. Plaintiff will also seek documentation of the license agreements and similar documents under which RTC and CSI control access to the trademarks, copyrights and purported trade secrets of L. Ron Hubbard.....".

Also of note is this from section S:

"OTHER ISSUES

This case has unusual issues. There are now a large number of former workers who have potentially relevant evidence, however, an unknown number of the former workers, and potential witnesses, are afraid to speak out. Some have signed “confidentiality’ agreements with penalty clauses labeled liquidated damage agreements, and believe that they can be sued for telling the truth about their scientology adventure. (Plaintiff was forced to sign such an agreement when she was demoted from RTC.) There are potential witnesses who have been essentially bought off with forgiveness of purported debt known as “freeloader debt. At least one witness is not in this suit because of threats made against his family relationships. There are witnesses who reasonably believe they will be declared suppressive persons and labeled “fair game” if they testify for Plaintiff.

Plaintiff contends that defendants should be forced to disclose the persons involved in this activity, the identity of potential witnesses and claimants contacted the identity of all who signed agreements or waivers of this nature, and all of the documents and purported confidentiality agreements generated by this inappropriate activity. Plaintiff may then move for relief and seek an order that will assure witnesses that they cannot be penalized thousands of dollars for serving as witnesses in this case".

Separate to this filing, a partial witness list has been made for the upcoming trial. It is extensive but is not being included here due to concerns for the privacy of the witnesses. I waive my own right to this privacy and list here what is included in that private filing under my name:

"Larry Brennan:
Former high executive knowledgeable on historical development of scientology corporate structure, and reasons for “church” to have elaborate corporate structure to hide control, assets, true management structure and similar attempts to present misleading facade to public. Also took part in efforts to shield operations and scientology orgs by use of religious cloaking. Knowledgeable on wide range of scientology topics based on his management experience. Also knowledgeable on Hubbard writings".

This is as much as I can update the cases right now. Again, anything more will either also be a public record or will likely be released by Marc or Claire as they see fit.

Stay tuned for what IMO will be an announcement of additional litigation involving David Miscavige, the abusive leader of organized scientology who is behind all of this.

Thanks for posting this update. Looks like a meritorious, but complex suit. The names of all those potential witnesses who have been suborned should be obtained by writ of mandamus, then those persons subpoened to testify.
Clearly, scientology is hardly a religion, but rather a crime syndicate that uses tactics very similar to the mafia.
