The Garcias answer Scientology's 'International Justice Chief' with an affidavit by Mike Rinder - 2014-10-16
Last time we checked in on the federal fraud lawsuit brought by Luis and Rocio Garcia against the Church of Scientology, we told you about a rare appearance by the church's "International Justice Chief," Mike Ellis.
We explained that the IJC is something of a notorious figure in Scientology because he's an excommunicated member's only "terminal" for communicating with the church. And so he handles the requests of kicked-out members as they complain about getting money back that they left on account.
Ellis submitted a declaration claiming that Scientology's internal justice procedures are legitimate, and that the internal arbitration process it wants the Garcias to undergo (in lieu of the lawsuit) are governed by well-defined rules.
