A week ago, we told you that in their fraud lawsuit, Luis and Rocio Garcia had filed an affidavit by former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder to convince Tampa federal Judge James A. Whittemore that the church's internal arbitration rules were a sham.

It turns out Scientology wasn't very happy about that.

The church has filed a motion to strike Rinder's affidavit, and they're referring back to an earlier attempt by Scientology to have the attorneys for the Garcias disqualified. Although rare in most litigation, for Scientology it's a standard part of its playbook - to try and get a plaintiff's attorneys disqualified by making various allegations about breached confidentiality or other supposed ethical lapses.
