Scientology answers the Garcias - And turns over a trove of internal documents - 2014-03-29
Yesterday, we told you that Luis and Rocio Garcia had taken an interesting new direction in their federal fraud lawsuit against Scientology. After spending a few months gathering evidence about several Scientology entities, they decided to drop three Scientology trusts as defendants, and then requested the right to amend their original complaint.
They filed that request on Wednesday, just one day before Scientology was due to make its own filing to support its motion to dismiss the lawsuit on jurisdictional grounds.
We have Scientology's filing, below. It's no surprise that Scientology is complaining about the way the Garcias filed their brief just the day before. Naturally, the church reiterates its position — that the jurisdiction problem is fatal to the entire lawsuit which should be dismissed.
