This was in Tony's blog

Several years later, Dandar was back in court against Scientology, this time in a 2009 federal lawsuit representing Victoria Britton, whose son, Kyle Brennan, died of a gunshot wound to the head on February 16, 2007. Police ruled it a suicide. But Britton, with Dandar’s help, wanted to prove that Scientology was responsible. Kyle was taking the antidepressant Lexapro when he went to Clearwater to visit his father, Tom Brennan, a Scientologist. Britton alleged that on the advice of Denise Gentile, twin sister to Scientology leader David Miscavige, Tom Brennan had confiscated his son’s medication while encouraging Kyle to enroll in Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon. (Scientology reviles psychiatry and psychiatric medications, like Lexapro.) A few days after his medication was taken away, Kyle allegedly shot himself with his father’s handgun, which he found in the house. Key to the lawsuit would be convincing district federal Judge Steven Merryday that instructions from Gentile telling Brennan to “handle” Kyle was a coded Scientology message that made the defendants liable for Kyle’s death. Ultimately, Merryday wasn’t convinced, and dismissed the case for lack of evidence.


The COS can't be sued over this, nor will the Florida State Bar lift a finger to assist the Dandar's. It was the decision of a Circuit Court judge to allow the garnishment of the bank account. When a joint bank account is subject to garnishment, the account is frozen temporarily. Florida law required Thomas Dandar to immediately file a "Claim of Exemption and Request for Hearing" before the Circuit Court judge who authorized the garnishment.

Since there was a co-mingling of funds belonging to Ken & Thomas, the judge could find that a portion of the money may still be partially exempt, but the Dandars would have to provide the court with some proof that a portion of the funds in the account belonged only to Thomas. It would be tricky because the brothers work out of the same office, share the same staff, therefore, funds for operating costs of the law firm came from a single bank account.

The Dandar's may have figured it wasn't worth their time to argue the garnishment order given that any decision to exempt some of the funds would have to come from the very judge that OK'd the garnishment in the first place.

May the judge be damned along with the COS. :angry::grouch::angry:
