From braintree!!!ddsw1!!van-bc!!usenet Fri Oct 20 10:08:01 1995 Path: braintree!!!ddsw1!!van-bc!!usenet From: (Bob Penny) Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Subject: WOLLERSHEIM APOLOGY, CORRECTION and posting cancellation. Date: Thu, 19 Oct 1995 12:01:36 GMT Organization: Rocky Mountain Internet Inc. Lines: 39 Message-ID: <466q60$> NNTP-Posting-Host: X-Newsreader: Forte Free Agent 1.0.82 10/19/95 Several days ago, at my personal request, Bob Penny posted a notice that David Miscavige must appear for deposition in the Lerma case in Virginia. This was a gross mistake on my part and at this time is not true. Without any prior knowledge of or approval from FACTNet's attorneys, Faegre & Benson and Ross Dixon, I took a draft notice of deposition for David Miscavige that I received at Faegre & Benson and incorrectly assumed in spite of ongoing discussion to the contrary that it was going to be filed very soon. I was completely wrong in this posting. In my anxiousness and impatience to bring David Miscavige to the stand to personally answer for and be held accountable for his RTC raids on FACTNet, I did not think carefully through the actual facts of that time before I prematurely requested that Bob post the notice. I have been under enormous stress lately due in significant part to recovering from the raid, a severe illness and Scientology's extensive surveillance and covert operations. While these things do not in any way excuse my incorrect and inappropriate action, nor do they change or qualify its complete incorrectness, they may at least give the reader some context from which I have been operating. I apologize to ars, the Internet, to David Miscavige and to Scientology for this incorrect posting. This or anything similar will not happen again. I personally accept all responsibility and consequences for this action. Please remove this posting from any place it resides. Sincerely, Lawrence Wollersheim
