Another Scientology Lawsuit Meets a Strange, Abrupt End in Texas - 2016-05-25
Initially, it seemed like Monique Rathbun would fight Church of Scientology lawyers all the way to the Texas Supreme Court over harassment she claims she endured at the hands of church members. But despite allegations that church operatives chased Rathbun and her husband from the Texas Gulf Coast to the Hill Country, Rathbun's case recently came to a sudden end.
Rathbun was never a Scientologist, but she got the church's attention when she married Marty Rathbun, who'd broken with the church in 2005. He'd been on the inside for 27 years, an executive second only to church leader David Miscavige, and after leaving, he spoke against Scientology — he appeared in HBO's Going Clear in 2015. Then Scientology members started coming after his wife, according to court records.
