As Monique Rathbun sees it, the Church of Scientology and its operatives tried to intimidate her for years - following, spying, aggressively confronting her and her husband, and playing tricks at her workplace to make colleagues think less of her.

That's why she sued.

But Scientology lawyers on Wednesday offered a different take. They said the church's actions were justified and legal - all part of a religious dispute with Rathbun's husband, Marty. He worked as a church executive for decades before leaving in 2004. In 2009, he began speaking out against church management.
