SCIENTOLOGY CHIEF DAVID MISCAVIGE SCHEDULED FOR DEPOSITION IN CHILD SEX ABUSE LAWSUIT - 2020-03-11
In the third of three big lawsuits filed last year by a powerful national legal team, a child sexual abuse case filed in Miami on behalf of a woman going by the name Jane Doe, a document appeared in an online docket today from Jane Doe's attorneys saying they expect Scientology leader David Miscavige to show up for a video deposition in Los Angeles on the morning of March 24.
Yes, just thirteen days from now. But will it happen? Former Scientology officials have told us that the thing Scientology's legal division dreads more than anything in the world is the thought of Miscavige having to answer questions under oath. We expect they'll try to move heaven and earth to keep this event from happening.
Jane Doe filed her lawsuit on September 18 in Miami, even though the incidents alleged in the complaint took place on the other side of the Florida peninsula in Clearwater, and also in Venezuela. (Scientology has already filed motions objecting to the lawsuit being filed in Miami, which appears to have no connection to the case except that Scientology has an "Ideal Org" there.)
