Texas woman drops lawsuit against Church of Scientology, citing lack of resources - 2016-05-20
Monique Rathbun, who is married to former Scientology official Marty Rathbun but was never part of the church, had sued the church for harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. According to Courthouse News Service, Monique Rathbun had claimed in her 2013 lawsuit that the church harassed her because of her husband's public statements condemning Scientology.
She said Scientology operatives openly followed her around, insulting her; rented homes near hers in order to point surveillance cameras at her home; and sent a sex toy to her workplace. Because of it, she said, she and her husband moved from the Texas Gulf Coast to a home in the "hill country" between Austin and San Antonio—but Scientology operatives eventually found them.
