LEAH REMINI AGREES TO TESTIFY IN SCIENTOLOGY HARASSMENT LAWSUIT - 2013-10-02
Leah Remini and dancer Tony Dovolani on Dancing With the Stars The Underground Bunker has learned that King of Queens actress Leah Remini has agreed to give a deposition in Monique Rathbun's harassment lawsuit against the Church of Scientology. The deposition will take place in Los Angeles on October 15, we were able to confirm today with Monique's attorney, Ray Jeffrey.
Scientology leader David Miscavige is trying to extricate himself from the lawsuit, which alleges that he masterminded a four-year campaign of surveillance and harassment of Monique and her husband, Mark "Marty" Rathbun, who was once Miscavige's top lieutenant in the church. Miscavige has argued that he has only a limited role as ecclesiastical leader of Scientology, does not care about the Rathbuns, and has no connection to the state of Texas, where the lawsuit was filed.
But Jeffrey tells us that Leah Remini has agreed to testify that David Miscavige actually does rule every aspect of Scientology, and that he is obsessed with Marty Rathbun, who defected from the church in 2004.
