ZED VS. THE LIBRARIAN-6

In the sixth round of "Stump the Librarian" (strip version), The Librarian we get taken with Zed on a mini tour of the ARSCC Chimerical Library, including our very first peek inside the infamous Cloak Closet (later known as the Cloak Room/cloakroom—capitalization optional) with the infinitely burnt-out light bulb. Best of all we get treated to her tireless wit and seemingly endless storehouse of facts, this time regarding her arch nemesis, Sherman Lenske...


From: nobody@zeta.org.au (The Galactic Overlord Remailer)
Subject: ZED VS. THE LIBRARIAN-6
Date: 1997/12/17
Message-ID: <6782m6$p17$1@godzilla.zeta.org.au>
Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology


In trying to STUMP THE LIBRARIAN regarding the Public Research
Foundation's Press Release, "HIDDEN TIES BETWEEN IRS AND SCIENTOLOGY
REVEALED," Zed took a pair of rounded scissors from the Children's
Section, applied them to the press release, and brought this clipping
to my desk:

>>But Sherman Lenske's involvement goes all the way back to 1981.
>>In a sworn declaration, Lenske says he was hired in April 1981
>>to be attorney "in all aspects of estate planning" for L. Ron
>>Hubbard.
>>
>>[A whole bunch of claims about Lenske snipped]

Then Zed thumped the desk, and said:

>Those claims need documentation.

NICE TRY, ZED, BUT...YOU DIDN'T STUMP THE LIBRARIAN!

Boy, Zed, getting bossy, aren't we. Well, I have to admit, I kind of
like a man who's in control, a man who knows what he wants and isn't
afraid to say it.

So let me see what I can do. Except you *SNIPPED* the darn claims about
Lenske, now *I* have to go find them again. Trouble, trouble, trouble.
Come on back in here to the Cloak Closet where I keep my things; that's
where my copy is.

<WALK>

My, it's *cramped* in here, isn't it? <CLICK> <CLICK> <CLICK> And the
silly lightbulb is burned out again! Who is in *charge* of this place!
Well, I have a penlight here on my keyring, but you'll have to lean in
against me. Okay. Here's the press release, and here's the first claim
in it about Lenske:

    "1. Lenske drafted all wills and trusts having anything to
    do with final distribution of Hubbard's assets and intellectual
    properties."

Well, *Zed,* honey, Lenske *himself* said as much as that in his *own*
declaration, on November 12th, 1995, which I keep--well, close to my
heart. Turn around, and *don't peek*!. Okay, you can look now. Here's
what Lenske said:

    "All of the documents effectuating the estate plan were drafted
    either by me or under my supervision."

It don't get no plainer than that, do it? Don't laugh at me. Now here's
the next claim from the press release:

    "2. Lenske was a consultant in the corporate restructuring that
    created CST."

Well, if I can just *sque-e-e-eze* past you here--oh, <BLUSH>
excu-u-u-se me; seems like there are some obstacles. Oo. Okay, walk this
way, and I'll take you to the DM Documents File Cabinet, out in the
legal section.

<WALK>

Yeah, we keep all the DM data in two-drawer file cabinets, in case he
ever comes in here himself and needs to look something up. Of course,
that makes *me* have to bend over again. <SIGH> So! Now, this is a
two-parter, okay? Stay with me. First, here's a print-out of the DM
biography that the Church of Scientology International has up on its own
web page. See--right here in this paragraph, it says:

    "In the early 1980's, Mr. Miscavige was a leader in
   reorganizing the corporate structure of the Church."

Got that? Okay, now. In this drawer down here--Uhnh! Okay! Here are some
excerpts from DM's deposition in the Corydon case, which was taken in
1990:

    "QUESTION: ...Now, someone was involved, some people were
    involved in deciding there should be (corporate) changes, or
    thinking about what kinds of changes there should be,
    exploring the different options and so on and so forth?
    "MISCAVIGE: Right.
    "QUESTION: Were you involved in any of that?
    "MISCAVIGE: ...Conferring with others about the problems?
    "QUESTION: Yes.
    "MISCAVIGE: Somewhat, yes.
    "QUESTION: And with whom did you confer?
    "MISCAVIGE: Attorneys.
    ...
    "Q. What attorneys did you consult with?
    ...
    "MISCAVIGE: ...I don't recall necessarily every name. I do
    recall, I believe, LLH&M, maybe Chris Cobb--just one second.
    "(ATTORNEY-CLIENT DISCUSSION HELD OFF THE RECORD.)
    "MISCAVIGE: That's it.
    "Q: For the record, LLH&M represents Lenske, Lenske, Heller
    and--
    "MISCAVIGE: --and Magnuson."

So, if DM was "a leader" in the corporate restructuring, and if the only
attorneys he consulted were Sherman Lenske's firm and Chris Cobb--well,
let's just say that Davey-boy didn't dream up all these corporations by
himself. Okay, next Lenske claim:

    "3. Lenske represented Norman F. Starkey, the executor of
    Hubbard's estate, right up through the point when Starkey
    transferred the intellectual property rights to CST."

Well, Zed, this comes from Sherm's own November 12th, 1995 declaration,
too. Mostly. In that, Lenske says he:

    "...also represented the Executor of...(LRH's) Estate
    through the probate of his (LRH's) Will, which was
    concluded in January 1989."

So you *may* have just a tiny piece of a "stump me" here, because I
can't *absolutely* document that Lenske was still representing Norman
Starkey from 1989 through November 29th, 1993, when Norm transferred all
the rights over to CST. But I *can* document that Lenske was a "Special
Director" of CST all that time--that's in the CST v. U.S. ruling. And
there's something *awfully* fishy--what are you laughing at? Well,
there's *something* funny about the fact that Norm kept collecting up
copyrights, and calling himself executor of the estate and will, right
up until he transferred all those copyrights--which I explained to you
*exhaustively* (in one of my other posts to you this date). Now, I'm
just going to remove *one ear ring* for that "partial stump," okay?
Here, keep this, big boy. It's all you're going to get. Next Lenske
claim!

    "4. In addition to his role as a Special Director of CST,
    Lenske is its Registered Agent, is Registered Agent for
    Religious Technology Center (which currently licenses the
    trademarks under CST's aegis), and is Registered Agent for
    Author Services, Inc., which represents Hubbard's fiction
    works."

Oh, that's easy. Come on over to our Corporate Section. Here are the
corporate records:

I oughta' win a Kewpie Doll for *that* one. Okay, Zed, here's the last
one:

    "5. Lenske created the fictitious business name, 'L. Ron
    Hubbard Library,' filing it first for Norman F. Starkey's use
    as executor, then filing it again in 1993 for CST, right after
    CST received all the intellectual property rights from Starkey."

Oh, Zed! I already answered this one, in a separate post. I even
provided a text version of the actual filing for CST. Trying to trick
me, you little devil, you! No fair.

So, there you are--all Lenske claims verified, with only that one little
stumble; but even that was a partial! Oh, my! It's closing time at the
ARSCC Chimerical Library. Here, I'll let you out. Darn, Zed, you know
you were just one day early; tomorrow is our annual "Librarians in
Lingerie Day." If you had waited till then for that little
"quasi-stump"-- well...<BLUSH>.

---------------------------------------------------------------

NICE TRY, ZED! AND COME BACK *ANY* TIME TO PLAY...

STUMP THE LIBRARIAN.

Now, drop 'em, Zed!. (I *did* tell you this was a strip challenge,
didn't I?)

                             --<The ARSCC Librarian>
