FORMER SCIENTOLOGY SPOKESMAN TOMMY DAVIS SUBPOENAED BY MONIQUE RATHBUN - 2013-10-02
The Monique Rathbun harassment lawsuit against Scientology is really heating up, with a judge's order yesterday that denied the church's attempt to bounce Monique's attorneys from the case and now, we've learned, former Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis is being dragged into the case to press him under oath about his years working with church leader David Miscavige.
Davis was served with a subpoena Saturday in Austin, and we expect that he'll be deposed rather soon — at least before the next hearing date in the case, which is scheduled for October 18.
The son of actress Anne Archer, Davis was the handsome spokesman who became the face of Scientology from about 2006 to 2010, and made many memorable television appearances. But then, he seemed to vanish, and "What happened to Tommy Davis?" became one of the most frequent questions we were asked by readers and other journalists. We've answered that question in the past, but now, Tommy may find himself back in the spotlight, and in a very different role than during his days running interference for David Miscavige.
