A few minutes ago, Bert Leahy spoke to Examiner, David Love, about how he’s feeling today and what his opinion is about the eventual outcome of the Monique Rathbun lawsuit against Scientology.
Leahy said: "I don’t know David if this case will ever get to trial stage, but for me and my family, it will give us some closure. But for many others I’ve met, I don’t know if they will ever have closure – they will probably never be the same person they were before being abused by Scientology.”
Now people are lining up, including actress, Leahy Remini, to help the truth be revealed, and give evidence in the Monique Rathbun harassment lawsuit against Scientology.
Bert Leahy may seem like a small fish in Scientology’s frying pan of legal battles right now; especially considering Leahy Remini, Tommy Davis, Marty Rathbun, and others being served to appear and swearing statements, but Leahy does has important evidence to bolster the case.
Former Scientology mouthpiece, Tommy Davis, was served a subpoena recently in the Rathbun case and may be deposed this month sometime.
Actress Leah Remini has agreed to give a deposition in Monique Rathbun’s harassment lawsuit against the Church of Scientology, perhaps by mid-October 2013.
After spending 2 weeks on the road with Bert Leahy, filming a new documentary “Scientology Cult of Confusion”, I was amazed and intrigued about what Leahy discovered and endured when the cult hired him to film and harass Marty Rathbun and his wife, Monique Rathbun. I was perplexed how such intentional intimidation and harassment could take place on American soil without the gun-packing lawmen stepping in or arresting the Scientology thugs.
In most cases of covert or overt operations done by Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs (OSA), they use their own personal or hire trusted law firms to hire arms-length private investigators to do their dirty work. But Leahy was never a Scientologist, knew nothing about the cult. He was simply adorned with a tee-shirt with an image of Marty Rathbun with ‘Squirrel Busters’ as the logo, and told to keep his camera running.
After only 3-4 days, Leahy could tell something was not right – he felt misled about the intentions of Scientology’s ‘Squirrel Buster’s’ squad of characters. Although the offer of $2,000 cash per week was enticing, and much needed income for a budding videographer at the time, Leahy quit and went home.
Now, in the Texas, Coma County District Court, Bert Leahy has a declaration filed, stating, in part:
“In June 1, 2011, I was contacted by a man to provide videography services for what he described as a “reality TV” program that he was producing about Marty Rathbun, a former Scientologist and his wife, Monique Rathbun.
I later learned that David “Stotter’s” real name was David Lubow.”
The Rathbun’s endured nearly 200 days of non-stop intimidation and harassment, but for the 3-4 short days Bert Leahy was on the ‘Squirrel Buster’ crew, his testimony, will indeed, help paint a scathing picture for any judge and jury of a desperate cult that behaves to this very day, the same as it always has and most likely will.
“The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder, L. Ron Hubbard." -- Judge Breckenridge, Los Angeles Superior Court
"Scientology is both immoral and socially obnoxious...
It is corrupt sinister and dangerous. It is corrupt because it is based on lies and deceit and has its real objective money and power for Mr. Hubbard... It is sinister because it indulges in infamous practices both to its adherents who do not toe the line unquestionably and to those who criticize it or oppose it. It is dangerous because it is out to capture people and to indoctrinate and brainwash them so they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult, withdrawn from ordinary thought, living, and relationships with others."
-- Justice Latey, ruling in the High Court of London
