UPDATE: Judge Dib Waldrip has decided that Scientology leader David Miscavige will be deposed in Monique's lawsuit. See our new story for the latest updates.

Monique Rathbun's harassment lawsuit against Scientology and its leader, David Miscavige, resumes today in the Comal County courthouse in New Braunfels, Texas, and we should be getting dispatches from both Mike Bennitt and Derek Bloch.

Judge Dib Waldrip will continue to consider Monique's request for a continuance — a delay in the case — so she can depose Miscavige, who has asked to be let out of the suit because he says the court has no jurisdiction over him. And that means both sides will continue to argue whether Miscavige was the kind of hands-on leader who would have obsessed over every aspect of the years of surveillance and harassment Monique and her husband Mark "Marty" Rathbun experienced (Monique's version of events) or Miscavige's version, that he's the spiritual leader of a thriving church and had nothing to do with the surveillance that was being run by one of Scientology's entities he has little do with.
