After what happened yesterday in court, David Miscavige and his lawyers withdrew the injunction and now Debbie Cook is ungagged.
What does this mean in layman’s words? It means they changed they realized their mistake and changed their minds and there is no reason to pursue the matter.
Perhaps they should have used the ‘Squirrel Busters’ instead of their fancy lawyers and it all would have been just a circus like with M&M.
This is the stuff that reality shows are made. Except that a lot of lives are at stake here.
According to Tony Ortega who was there; this is what transpired in court:
George Spencer started proceedings by addressing Judge Tanner, saying that Cook had made “false and misleading statements” about the church yesterday, that she has done “irreparable harm to our client.”
“As we feared, the defendant has used the courtroom to…violate the agreement. She disparaged numerous officials not involved in this case.”
“The extreme falsity of her testimony is shown by the simple fact that she didn’t have a positive thing to say about any of the people she worked with…” he said.
Cook had “destroyed the value of the temporary injunction,” and therefore the church was withdrawing its request for one.
Ray Jeffrey and his clients, Debbie Cook and Wayne Baumgarten, are back in court. Scientology’s attorneys are still huddling outside.
9:55 am. Jeffrey is saying that he wants to continue his examination of Cook on the record because he wanted to address her signing the NDA.
Spencer says the court can’t continue:
*********** “This thing is over.” ************
What does this mean? It means that this was just the hearing to try and make Debbie’s Temporary Restraining Order into an Injunction until the real trial is over. She can now speak freely without fear of being jailed by a Judge.
And Miscavige made a formidable enemy on Debbie Cook because she knows A LOT. I just hope that she uncovers data about the Lisa MacPherson case too. It is time for real justice inside the Cof$.
David Miscavige gave an oportunity to Debbie to speak in court, perhaps she was smart enough to predict this scenario and she planned it well, more than anyone else, Debbie knows David’s buttons very well after all those years working for him and she sure knew how to push them.
Her actions, whether planned or not turned out to be victorious and now hopefully other execs can walk out and talk, perhaps even David Mayo can come out in the open too.
I doubt that the cult will pursue suing anyone any more and maybe Debbie will file a cross complaint and they will have to pay millions of dollars to her now. But if justice was truly served, the authorities would dismantle the SO, refund the money to all parishioners and pay back to SO staff for their dedicated labor and David Miscavige and his accomplices would serve time in jail for their crimes.
There is a lot more to say, but it is already all over the internet.
I end this article with a video of Debbie testifying in Court yesterday.
