    And "he who makes the rules can break the rules"...

    I remember seeing David Bloomberg in Sea Org Management blues in the PAC canteen somewhere in the mid 1990s. Previous to that he had been ASI staff for years. Normally if I'd see him he'd be in a suit.

    I guess he'd been demoted from ASI and un-resigned back into the Sea Org.

    More like "the rules" are really just "the shore story" (in the SO, a shore story is the invented cover story for what's really going on)

    These are the MCCS (Mission Corporate Category Sortout) tapes filed in US v. Zolin. (Zolin being the Clerk of the Court.)

    Gerry wrote about the MCCS tapes and posted a transcript to alt.religion.scientology, which I've now posted in Important Documents.

    The claim I have seen in legal cases is that they say the Sea Org is an unincorporated entity.

    Sea Org members receive W-2 Forms showing their wages, so it's obvious they have a corporate employer -- whatever organization a member may be posted to.

    Yes, that's right. Zolin tapes. By now you most likely have read Caroline's response.
