During deposition today, June 18, 1998, plaintiff

presented defendant a number of Usenet posting to identify.

Attached to these was a single sheet of paper which contained

instructions to the plaintiff's lawyers regarding the

deposition. Plaintiff's lawyer Helena Kobrin was extremely

upset and (with her legal aid) physically attacked defendant and

ripped the paper into pieces as defendant was trying to read the

document which she claimed was "privileged."

From what defendant saw, defendant believes the paper

contains instructions from the highest level of Scientology

(David Miscavige) about ways to "fair game" or otherwise punish

defendant through abuse of the discovery process.


Submitted under penalty of perjury,


H. Keith Henson June 18, 1998
