I cannot believe that this court case was ever about anything but money ... after wasting the best years of his life in the cofs and leaving with virtually nothing Marty now has a family and all the usual financial responsibilities of the real world, he has many decades to make up for financially, he needs serious money to have any kind of lifestyle and due to the harassment they received and by Mosey agreeing to stand up to the cofs they had a very good chance of achieving a result, but something changed recently.
We're all guessing about what happened prior to Mosey dumping the lawyers and dropping the case but I can only imagine that Marty was threatened with some kind of expose (based on his gory cofs past) that would so devastate his current life that he chose to lay down when told to.
That is the only thing that makes sense to me (apart from a secret settlement which would be insane) and whatever miscavige has over him must be truly shocking and he (miscavige) must have managed to arrange things so that he cannot be implicated in anything himself.
Nope, this is absolutely not the case. Tony has verified he does know what happened but can't yet report all the details he has, however, in very straightforward terms stated that there was no trump care or leverage used by the cult against the Rathbuns nor was their any secret settlement.
Everything points to Marty not working well with others and just being a real asshole and fucking over the lawyers for stupid/selfish reasons. Marty has been attacking Tony because obviously Tony knows the truth, has agreed with the lawyers about the matter and Marty's terrible behavior. His posts have been to try and strike out and smear Tony so when the truth comes out he can try to pretend it's some terrible campaign against he and Mosey - instead of just shitty behavior by Marty and Mosey.
