David Miscavige wastes no time once the stay is lifted in Monique Rathbun's lawsuit - 2016-02-18
As we expected, as soon as the Texas Supreme Court temporarily lifted the stay in Monique Rathbun's harassment lawsuit against the Church of Scientology, a motion was filed this week in Dib Waldrip's Comal County court, and we have a copy of it for you. And sure enough, there was a surprise — the motion asked for substitution of counsel.
For a moment, we got pretty excited. Was Monique revealing that she'd hired new attorneys to replace the ones she'd fired?
But then we noticed that it was Scientology leader David Miscavige who had filed the motion about his attorney, Lamont Jefferson. It turns out that since Miscavige first hired Jefferson to represent him in Texas, Jefferson has left the firm of Haynes and Boone and has formed his own firm, Jefferson Cano.
