We told you that Bert Deixler, Scientology's top-flight attorney, had filed a notice that the church planned to appeal a federal court ruling even after getting shot down in its latest attempt to throw up a roadblock before Laura DeCrescenzo finally gets her day in court this August on her 9-year forced-abortion lawsuit.

Now, we have the actual argument that Deixler is making to the Los Angeles Superior Court that it should put a stay on Laura's case while the church pursues a long-shot appeal even after its Hail Mary federal lawsuit was stomped by a judge who killed it "with prejudice" to keep it from coming back.

As a sign of the church's desperation, Deixler uses some pretty intimidating-sounding language in this motion for a stay to convince the state court in Los Angeles that it should hold things up since the church's federal appeal could win the day and make everything go away…
