Scientology not only wants Danny Masterson rape lawsuit quashed, it wants sanctions - 2019-11-21
Yesterday we told you that when we learned Scientology leader David Miscavige notified the Los Angeles Superior Court that he had been improperly served a lawsuit regarding rape allegations against Scientologist actor Danny Masterson, we took a stab at what we thought might be the argument his attorneys would be making.
We noticed that by California law you can do "substitute service" of someone like Miscavige if you deliver court papers to someone at the office which he uses as a mailing address.
And that's when we noticed something interesting. We knew that the legal team behind the lawsuit had sent a process server to Scientology's "Hollywood Guaranty Building" (HGB) at 6331 Hollywood Blvd. But we found letterhead from Miscavige showing that as the leader of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), Scientology's nominally controlling entity and a defendant in the lawsuit, he used a different address: 1710 Ivar Ave, 11th floor.
Now, those two addresses — 6331 Hollywood Blvd and 1710 Ivar Ave — are actually two separate entrances into the same building, the HGB.
