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. :)

Poster with the nic Couch_Incident over on the Underground Bunker found this little gem from Wallace Jefferson's Judgepedia page.....

In a 6-3 vote, the Texas Supreme Court threw out a jury award over injuries a 17-year-old girl suffered in an exorcism conducted by members of her old church, ruling that the case unconstitutionally entangled the court in religious matters. The Supreme Court threw out the $188,000 that the Court of Appeals awarded. Justice David Medina wrote that finding the church liable "would have an unconstitutional 'chilling effect' by compelling the church to abandon core principles of its religious beliefs." But Jefferson, in a dissenting opinion, stated that the "sweeping immunity" is inconsistent with U.S. Supreme Court precedent and extends far beyond the Constitution's protections for religious conduct. "The First Amendment guards religious liberty; it does not sanction intentional abuse in religion's name," Jefferson wrote.[SUP][11][/SUP]


All together now....."Hmmmmmmmmm"

In other news, Lamont Jefferson is "quoting DSM IV as regards non-plaintiff Marty Rathbun:

“So convinced is Marty Rathbun that Mr. Miscavige must be preoccupied by his antics, it is simply unfathomable to him that Mr. Miscavige is in fact engaged in more important activities.”
But wait, there’s a footnote to this sentence. And here’s what the footnote says:
DSM-IV-TR describes “projective identification” defense mechanism as one where the individual deals with emotional conflict or internal or external stressors by falsely attributing to another his or her own unacceptable feelings, impulses, or thoughts.

This is classic "Pot-Kettle-Black". Or in the Scientological milieu "Criminal Mind" - "THE CRIMINAL ACCUSES OTHERS OF THINGS WHICH HE HIMSELF IS DOING."

DM is just crying out to be sec checked....

But he will probably go Type 3 Expanded and need an Introspection Rundown first.

Good luck with that...

Actually it was DM's own attorney Lamont Jefferson who wrote this.

SCIENTOLOGY IS SETTING UP A RELIGIOUS BAIT AND SWITCH TRAP FOR RAY BECAUSE IT LOOKS TOO GOOD TO BE TREU AND I THINK WALACE JEFFERSON HAS COME UP WITH THIS STRATEGY

Thanks. I fixed it. Hard to keep this cast of thousands straight (and that is intentional). How is it that RTC can make arguments in the extant case when they say the court has no jurisdiction over them?

Dear Cat Daddy,

What Lone Star said.

Religious freedom has been the cult lawyers' catchphrase from Day One.

But they are leaving delicious baits now

Throwing DM's reputation under the bus for it

I see what you're saying, but keep in mind Cedillo made the above references while arguing that the Judge had to throw this whole case out under the anti-SLAPP motion. He was trying to prove that the SLAPP law isn't concerned with the intent of the party being considered in the lawsuit. He used basically the same argument trying to prove that discovery was unnecessary.

When we get beyond this SLAPP nonsense then we'll probably see another tack that they'll take. Or at least a modification of this one. It's very fluid.

Here's the bio for Wallace Jefferson on website called Center for America.

I think there can be no doubt as to why WJ is on the team. In other words TG1 is right.

A little snippet...

"Chief Justice Jefferson developed an early interest in appellate law as a student of the late constitutional scholar Charles Alan Wright. In 1989, he joined the appellate section of Groce, Locke & Hebdon in San Antonio. He founded his own appellate law firm with Tom Crofts and Sharon Callaway in 1991. Crofts, Callaway and Jefferson soon became one of the preeminent appellate practices in Texas.


He quickly earned a reputation for appellate excellence. He successfully argued two cases before the United States Supreme Court by age 35...."
