04/09/14 Austin Appeals Court Hearing regarding DM's Deposition Order

Discussion in 'Monique Rathbun' started by Lone Star, Apr 9, 2014.

    Okay, I'm about to head out and pick up my fellow SP to do lunch and then mosey on over to the courthouse. (pun intended). My fellow SP is none other than Derek a.k.a. Adam7986. Hopefully he may post some things here himself. He's an outstanding note taker.

    I wanted to go ahead and start this thread now. Again nothing can be posted during the hearing itself. I'm hoping that there will be a break at some point. If not then most likely I won't be able to post anything until 5 or so, Texas time.

    Again as a help.....the hearing starts at 1:30.

    2:30 east coast

    Everyone else figure it out....LOL...

    Thank you for keeping us posted, Lone Star! While keeping tabs is the most important to me, I can't help enjoying the though of Captain Miscavige's reaction to knowing this is playing out in the open. It's hard to fair game people when everyone knows the scores.

    Good luck to Mr. Block who are in the fire today!

    What? You guys didn't expect that? I believed is was a common rule that whenever something interesting happens, the most relevant servers would go down. :biggrin:

    In fact I'm delighted that ESMB is still up and running.

    Thanks Emma and ethercat. :thumbsup:

    Did any of the appellate-panel judges* ask questions of either Wallace Jefferson or Leslie Hyman?
    If so, did the questions seem to focus on any specific point(s)?

    :clap::clap::clap: Extra-special thanks to LoneStar, Mr. Bennitt, and Adam7986 for your attendance @ today's hearing. :clap::clap::clap:

    *Hon. David Puryear, Hon. Melissa Goodwin, and Hon. Scott Field.

    The site is up again.

    From Tony:
    "At issue today is Comal County Judge Dib Waldrip’s decision that Monique Rathbun should get to depose Miscavige for jurisdictional reasons (Miscavige is arguing that he shouldn’t be a party to the lawsuit because, he claims, he does no business in Texas and had nothing to do with Scientology’s surveillance of Monique and her husband Marty Rathbun over the last several years)."
