NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Lawyers for the Church of Scientology say what a former church executive and his wife call harassment in a Texas lawsuit was an exercise of free speech.

A judge in New Braunfels heard testimony from Scientologists and members of the church's large legal team Wednesday, the Tampa Bay (Fla.) Times reported. The church has asked Comal County Judge Dib Waldrip to dismiss the lawsuit brought by Monique Rathbun.

Her husband, Marty, quit the church in 2004 and began publicly speaking out against Scientology five years later. Monique Rathbun said that triggered a campaign that included confrontations outside their home and using private detectives to tail them.
