That is how Debbie Cook and Wayne Baumgarten’s attorney characterizes what Debbie was put through by Scientology Inc.
Tony Ortega at the Village Voice published the first interview with the Baumgarten’s San Antonio litigation attorney Ray Jeffrey. As I think you will see from the article, Ray has the right attitude going into what may be the biggest legal war of his long career.
Ray has bent over backward to stretch his firm’s pricing standards to make his quality, aggressive representation available to Debbie and Wayne. And while their defense will likely continue to cost 1/2oth of what Miscavige’s Death Star is pouring into this unprecedented assault on constitutional and human rights, Debbie and Wayne are going to need a huge support base to wage this battle with the beast toe to toe.
Mike Rinder and I both attest that Ray Jeffrey is the best possible man to have in Debbie and Wayne’s corner. In fact, I don’t think there is anyone in San Antonio, or anywhere else for that matter, who better fits the bill.
For those who have made contributions to Debbie and Wayne’s defense, your donations are well invested. You are very much appreciated by all of us. To those who haven’t and wish to contribute, you can do so at Debbie’s personal webpage (see donate to legal defense fund notice in upper right hand margin): Debbie’s legal defense fund.
This is not going to be easy, but the line in the sand had to be drawn in San Antonio.
