This time, she's opposing Scientology's appeal of Comal County Judge Dib Waldrip's denial of the church's "anti-SLAPP" motion. And if the appeals court sides against Monique this time, the lawsuit is over.

So there's a lot on the line, and Monique's attorney Leslie Hyman rises to the challenge. We've been telling you that it's really amazing to see Scientology try to use a law - the anti-SLAPP statute - which was intended to help protect the free speech rights of resource-poor individuals from being overwhelmed by the deep pockets of a litigious foe. In fact, Scientology's long history of litigious bullying and scorched-earth tactics was one of the inspirations for anti-SLAPP legislation in its early history.
