Another Riffer-ific salvo from Scientology leader David Miscavige in our legal roundup - 2014-12-02
We have several legal updates for you today, and we'll start with the always entertaining Jeffrey K. Riffer, attorney for Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige.
You'll remember that the colorful Riffer, known for his over-the-top threat letters to Vanity Fair and CNN in which he comes off sounding exasperated that anyone would question the godlike ecclesiastical awesomeness of his client, had submitted a salvo of outrage aimed at the National Association of Forensic Counselors, which is suing Miscavige and 81 other defendants in a massive civil lawsuit regarding the misuse of the NAFC's trademarks and logos.
The NAFC filed its suit in federal court in Oklahoma, because that's where Scientology has the flagship facility of its drug rehab network, Narconon, which, the suit alleges, fraudulently misused the NAFC's credentialing certificates in order to make the Narconon system look more legitimate than it actually is. The NAFC calls it a massive conspiracy, with Miscavige lording over it all as the dictator of Scientology.
