Press fucks up this way:
I suspect this article is incorrect, so it might be best not to believe what's written at this point.
While the article does say Wallace Jefferson is "center stage" and the headline says "takes over defense", I think these are sloppy phrases, not verified facts.
That Wallace Jefferson has taken over "the defense" (<---singular) offers a first great clue that the article's author and editor(s) have simply lumped all of the defendants together as one - calling it "David Miscavige and the Church of Scientology". <---second great clue.
Further, the article doesn't mention who Mr. Jefferson took over from or that anyone was fired.
Because the article states: "lawyers for the Church of Scientology declined to be interviewed for this story", it seems as if the article's author and editor(s) 'winged it'. To their shame and their readers loss.
Ricardo Cedillo is the attorney of record for CSI.
Lamont Jefferson is the attorney of record for RTC and David Miscavige...along with Wallace Jefferson and Rachel Ekery as of December 18, 2013.
Until there's a press conference announcing such a development, I don't think this poorly-worded article should be relied upon.
JB - hoping Fox25 San Antonio will clarify soon.
