Box 98 Minden, Nevada 89423-0098 February 12 and 14, 1997 Ms. Cathy Norman Church of Scientology of Texas Austin, TX 78705 By Fax at 512/474-2986 Hard copy to follow: Certified Mail RRR Re: Norman/Branch letter dated October 21, 1996 and a dead agent document ("da doc") of May 10, 1993 Dear Ms. Norman: This letter is written on behalf of my friend and neighbor, Gerald Armstrong. The professional advice given to him by me, as reflected hereinafter, represents my best judgments and resulting conclusions on the facts made known and perceived by me. The judgments and conclusions reached were formed after reasonable inquiry that the allegations made are grounded in fact and warranted by existing law or a good faith argument for the extension, modification, or reversal of law existing in one or more jurisdictions. On the same bases, and further consistency with Fed.R.Civ. P. Rule 11 please be advised that, to the best of my knowledge, information and belief the actions demanded of you and your associates are imposed for entirely proper purposes. You have caused to be transmitted to Craig Branch of the Watchman Fellowship a letter dated October 21, 1996 and a "dead agent document" (herein, sometimes "da doc") dated 10-May-1993, both of which concern Gerald Armstrong and recently received by him. Your letter states that you earlier provided that same da doc to James Walker, also of the Watchman Fellowship. I am copying the Church of Scientology International, the Religious Technology Center and Scientology's leader David Miscavige because the da doc originated with them. These materials individually and together defame Mr. Armstrong. They contain distortions and lies, and were created and distributed with malice. Separately and collectively, they constitute libel per se. I represent Mr. Armstrong in his effort to correct the wrong done by you, your associates, and your seniors with and through your letter and the subject "dead agent document." As you and your seniors know, Mr. Armstrong is an expert in the subject of fair game and in the fraudulent representations and history of Scientology. As you know, his testimony has been used in many lawsuits involving people who have been defrauded or "fair gamed" by your organization. Your letter and the da doc are intended to have the effect of destroying Mr. Armstrong's credibility and character and his ability to testify on behalf of fraud and fair game victims. Another intended effect of these defamatory materials outside of the legal arena is to cause Mr. Armstrong to be rejected by people. As you know, Watchman Fellowship is a Christian research and apologetics organization, and Mr. Armstrong is a fellow believer. Your da doc was also used within the Scientology organization to cause Mr. Armstrong to be wrongly reviled and attacked by Scientologists. Mr. Armstrong is distressed by this latest incident in your organization's black propaganda campaign. He believes that as long as Scientology continues to fabricate and tell lies about him he is in danger. He wants all of Scientology's fair game activities to end so that he can obtain the peace he and others are due. The subject da doc was not included in the set of dead agent packs on Mr. Armstrong produced by Scientology in discovery in its litigations against him. For this reason I am copying Mr. Armstrong's former attorney Ford Greene so that he may take whatever action, if any, he may deem appropriate concerning Scientology's withholding of this document. Demand is hereby made that every document of any kind under the control of any individual staff member or agent of any Scientology corporation or other entity, including all electronic records, pertaining in any way to Mr. Armstrong, be segregated, made safe and not destroyed or altered, nor removed from their present premises. I have advised Mr. Armstrong that he is free to communicate orally, in writing or by any other legal medium available to him to fully correct the lies and distortions in your letter and dead agent document. I have advised him that he is free to communicate to anyone he believes may have been or may be exposed to this black PR, and that he is free to explain why Scientology and its leaders have created and distributed these documents. I have further advised Mr. Armstrong that Scientology cannot legally prevent him from correcting this libel with threatened enforcement of your organization's "settlement agreement" of December, 1986. Each moment you and your seniors prevent him from telling the truth to whomever he chooses in rejection of your documents' attack on his character you are increasing his damages. I demand, on his behalf, that you and your seniors immediately publish a full retraction of each and every lie and distortion in these documents. I further demand that you and your seniors provide me with a complete list of each and every person, agency, organization or other entity inside or outside of Scientology to whom this da document was at any time given or shown. Since this document was apparently created in 1993, it was not created for the purpose of sending to Mr. Branch and Mr. Walker in 1996, but for a far wider distribution. Finally this is a demand for $900,003.00 to compensate Mr. Armstrong for the damage you and your organization have done -- up to the date of this demand -- by the writing and dissemination of your letter and this da doc to the Watchman Fellowship. If an understanding cannot be reached, and correction of this situation cannot be achieved, Mr. Armstrong is prepared to file a lawsuit for, inter alia, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and civil rights violations against you and all other persons, organizations or entities who participated in the writing and dissemination. He is prepared, also, to file a parallel and complementary action pursuant to the Racketeering and Corrupt Influence Act. I trust you and your seniors will do the right thing. Very truly yours, George W. Abbott cc: Ford Greene, Esquire cc: Church of Scientology International cc: Religious Technology Center cc: David Miscavige ***** 2. Wilson Campilongo LLP 115 Sansome Street, Suite 400 San Francisco, California 94104 (415)391-3900 Telecopy (415)954-0938 February 25, 1997 George Abbott, Esq. 2245-B Meridian Blvd. P.O. Box 98 Minden, Nevada 89423-0098 Re: Church of Scientology v. Armstrong Our File No. SC102-003 Dear Mr. Abbott: This firm represents the Church of Scientology International ("CSI") in the referenced matter and has been asked to respond to your letter dated, curiously, "February 12th and 14th, 1997." Although you say that you conducted a "reasonable inquiry" that the allegations you made are grounded in fact, it is quite apparent that your are ignorant of the lengthy history of the dispute between my client and Mr. Armstrong. Although you allude to it, you are unaware or have ignored the import and effect of the settlement agreement (the "Agreement") which they entered into on December 8, 1986. As you should know from your reasonable investigation, Mr. Armstrong raised every conceivable challenge to the Agreement in the referenced action, including the argument that the Agreement could not prohibit him from responding to allegations made by CSI concerning him. All of Mr. Armstrong's arguments were rejected each time he made them. Armstrong was first enjoined from violation of the Agreement by the Hon. Michael Dufficy in March, 1992 by way of temporary restraining order. The Hon. Ronald Sohigian in May, 1992, entered a preliminary injunction to similar effect. Judge Sohigian's order was appealed by Armstrong and affirmed in an opinion which dismissed Armstrong's arguments out of hand. In January of 1996, a Judgment of Permanent injunction (the "Injunction") was entered against Armstrong in Marin County Superior Court following an order entered by the Hon. Gary Thomas summarily adjudicating various causes of action, including one for injunctive relief . It would behoove you to review these orders, and the papers in support and in opposition to the motions which resulted in those orders before advising Mr. Armstrong that "...he is free to communicate orally, in writing or by any other legal means available to him to fully correct..." alleged lies and distortions. The fact is that Mr. Armstrong is not free to do that. Mr. Armstrong's sole remedy is to seek appropriate relief for alleged defamatory statements. The problem, of course, with that approach is that Mr. Armstrong will never be able to prove defamation. I have reviewed the documents which you allege are defamatory and am unable to find any statement concerning Mr. Armstrong, much less one which is defamatory. Please enlighten me as to which statements you contend are defamatory, and why you make that contention. Please also inform me exactly how Mr. Armstrong became aware of the alleged defamatory communication and what persons Mr. Armstrong believes he needs to communicate with in order to correct these alleged defamatory statements. Your letter refers to Mr. Armstrong as your "friend and neighbor." It is my understanding that Mr. Armstrong currently resides in San Anselmo, California. In fact, I gave Mr. Armstrong notice on Friday, February 14 by telephone to his residence in San Anselmo (Telephone No. 456-8450) of an ex parte application for the issuance of an order to show cause re contempt. The telephone was answered by an answering machine which played a recording of the voice of Lorien Phippany which stated "Please leave a message for either Jerry or Lorien." As I was drafting this letter, I again called that number and heard exactly the same message. If Mr. Armstrong is currently residing in Minden, Nevada or its environs, I would appreciate your letting me know. For your information, the ex parte application was successful. I enclose the application, supporting papers, and the order to show cause which Judge Thomas issued. You should find it interesting reading. I believe that my client has shown remarkable restraint in its dealing with Mr. Armstrong in enforcing the Judgment. It is apparent that Mr. Armstrong has a pathological inability to remain disconnected from CSI. This inability manifests itself in various provocations, such as the letter to the Los Angeles City Council which you must have discovered in the course of your reasonable investigation. CSI has "turned the other cheek" when it could, given the pathetically ineffectual nature of most of these provocations. However, it could not sit idly by in the face of Mr. Armstrong's direct communication with a sitting United States District Judge. It is apparent to me that you and Mr. Armstrong are colluding to create a defense to a charge of contempt against Mr. Armstrong, as evidenced by your statement that you have advised Mr. Armstrong that he is free to communicate with anyone to correct lies which have been told about him. Before you provide Mr. Armstrong with such a purported "advice of counsel" defense, you should carefully consider whether you have a reasonable basis for such advice, whether you are subjecting yourself to liability for your uninformed advice or, even worse, for your collusion with Armstrong to avoid the Court's directive, and whether you are ultimately willing to be yet another victim of Mr. Armstrong's pathology. Very truly yours, WILSON CAMPILONGO LLP Andrew H. Wilson AHW-1917.ltr Enclosures ***** 3. March 6, 1997 David Miscavige RTC Dear David: Not many days ago I was led to somebody's web page which contained a portion of Scientology's IRS form 1023 submitted in 1992. Because of what I found, and other threats from your organization, I left the US. This 1023 submission made clear to me finally why you have attacked me so violently since the 1986 "settlement," and indeed why you contrived the "settlement" to take the form it did, even though I continued through the years to try to achieve a sane and lasting peace. You believe that your billions and billions depend on my destruction. Your submission contains the same lies about me, the same attacks in all the black PR/DA packs and court filings that you have had your organization manufacture since the "settlement." Happily, as I'm sure you've noticed I've said before, since you are personally responsible you can do what is necessary to correct it all. With this letter I am offering you another opportunity to right the wrongs done, to correct the record without further conflict. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity please immediately communicate your willingness to meet with me by advising my attorney who will forward this letter to you. Your refusal to participate in such a correction of the record by meeting with me will signal to me your choice to continue your unjustified attack on me and others. In that event I will, for everyone's sake, correct the record in a number of ways and on a number of channels. 1. I will communicate the truth behind the falsehoods in your 1023 submission, both to the IRS and to other US government agencies responsible. 2. I will do what is necessary to bring about a Congressional awareness of the false submission, and what I know about your related activities, including, but not limited to, your attacks on and compromise of my attorney Michael Flynn. 3. I will communicate what I know about the falsehoods underlying your organization's US tax exemption and your related activities to any foreign government in countries where you have used the US tax exemption to forward or defend your activities. 4. I will investigate the truth or falsity of every charge you have made against every other person or entity in your submission(s) to the IRS; e.g., Michael Flynn, Laurel Sullivan, Lawrence Wollersheim, Charlie O'Reilly, Gene Allard, Roxanne Friend, Toby Plevin, FAMCO, CAN. 5. I will do whatever I can to bring the US to reverse its improper decision granting your organization tax exemption. 6. I will seek a Congressional investigation of the IRS's dereliction of duty in its failure to investigate your false responses to its queries, and its granting of tax exemption, when it had plenty of knowledge of your organization's history of lying and obstruction of justice. I will also seek an answer to why this Great Nation surrendered in the legal and extra legal war you waged with it, and thus abandoned the individual victims it should have defended. 7. I will communicate all these matters to the media so that further investigation can be initiated. 8. I will write and speak publicly and openly on these matters to anyone who cares to hear. I will publish my story and thoughts. 9. I will make this letter public, and on its basis and on the facts known to me I will solicit the funds to prosecute the necessary litigation to correct your wrongs. 10. I will take appropriate legal action against you and the various organization components and persons responsible pursuant to RICO and civil rights statutes. The precedent acts begin with your first post "settlement" threat, and run through every threat, every lie, every effort to have me jailed or otherwise punished or harmed, every obstruction of justice, and every use of the law to harass. Please do not continue to make the error of believing your own attacks and lies. All your black PR has not damaged my character, although it has damaged the character of its originators. You state in your 1023 submission that your "evidence proved conclusively" [my] "state of mind"..."to be one sordid sado-masochistic nightmare." You know this charge, which, I know you can imagine, tears at my heart, is untrue. You must know as well that this sort of base calumny has no place in your organization's statements to anyone, and certainly not to the IRS or a government. I believe you have an easy decision. With my help it is entirely possible your organization can retain its tax exempt status, resolve its legal problems, and achieve a sane and lasting peace. If you insist on continuing your attack on me and others, you and your organization will face terrible and perhaps insurmountable difficulties. I am writing directly to you so that it rests upon you to advise all of Scientology of the position in which you have placed it. All Scientologists will in any case soon learn either that you put them at risk with dishonesty or that you have acted wisely to reduce the needless threat to their survival and happiness. I have stated in many communications which you have received through these years that I have other things I wish to do in my life, things, very dear, and untearing, to my heart, different from defending myself and others from Scientology. I have no interest, no matter what you think, in bringing you or anyone else to your knees. God does that. Nevertheless, I cannot ignore the truth that I have been given a role, by your unceasing attacks on me if not by His Guidance, in the resolution of the Scientology conflict. Nor can I ignore the truth that your threats and attacks make my doing those things dear to my heart impossible until the conflict is ended. I pray that you will see that by my writing you I am still hopeful that you will choose to avoid what will be, no matter what you henceforth do to try to harm me, certain calamity. I pray that you will immediately communicate your willingness to meet with me and my attorney. You may bring with you whatever attorney or attorneys you desire. My attorney will decide on the venue in a discussion with your designated attorney. I pray to God that we all do the right thing. Yours urgently, Gerry Armstrong ***** 4. George W.

In the meantime, much of my available time has been devoted to determining whether I should, at this time, make any personal observations prompted by my reading and rereading -- against related, researched facts and conclusions independently reached by me -- of the subject Armstrong-Miscavige communication. My decision is uncomplex. I shall refrain at this time from adding any of my own observations, but two: I trust that you will perceive Gerry's letter to be of signal, even watershed importance and that you will proceed to act accordingly. And, it is most devoutly hoped that, from your most high position, you and your key associates will react and respond responsibly and constructively to the end, in Gerry's words and with his help, that those within and without the protracted Scientology- Armstrong history of events will "achieve a sane and lasting peace." In the fourth full paragraph of Mr. Armstrong's March 6, 1997 letter we find these words: "If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity please immediately communicate your willingness to meet with me by advising my attorney who will forward this letter to you." I, of course, am that attorney. On the foregoing but with a slight modification (*underlined*) "If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, *or if you do not*, please immediately communicate your willingness *or unwillingness* to meet with me by advising my attorney who will forward this letter to you." I shall construe "immediately" to embrace seven (7) calendar days from the date of receipt in your office of this (Abbott) letter with its enclosed (Armstrong) letter, as evidenced by an executed return receipt. I look forward to a timely and meaningful response. Yours constructively and professionally, George W. Abbott Enclosure cc: Gerald Armstrong ***** 5. George W.

It is the request of Mr. Armstrong that you be asked to respond to his letter by Facsimile to this office on or before close of business, Friday, May 9, PDT.

Wilson Campilongo LLP 115 Sansome Street, Suite 400 San Francisco, California 94104 (415)391-3900 Telecopy (415)954-0938 May 8, 1997 George Abbott, Esq. 2245-B Meridian Blvd. P.O. Box 98 Minden, Nevada 89423-0098 Re: Gerry Armstrong Our File No. SC102-003 Dear Mr. Abbott: I write in reply to your letter of May 5, 1997 which, as was your last letter, referred to me for reply. As I am sure you are aware, I have represented the Church of Scientology ("CSI") since early 1992 in its efforts to enforce the Settlement Agreement of December 6, 1986. My representation naturally includes dealing with the various threats and demands which your client and friend has made in the past five years. His letter of March 6, 1997, is not the first letter of this type that we have received. I trust that you have familiarized yourself with that prior correspondence, so I will not waste time here by discussing it in detail, It suffices to note that all of this correspondence follows an all too familiar pattern - a regurgitation of Mr. Armstrong's view of the Settlement Agreement, its alleged unenforceability, CSI's alleged persecution of Mr. Armstrong, Mr. Armstrong's professed desire to make peace with CSI, threats to expose certain unspecified facts which Armstrong hints would damage CSI, allusions to Mr. Armstrong's ability to benefit CSI ("With my help, it is entirely possible your organization can retain its tax exempt status..."), underlying all of which is the odor of attempted blackmail. Mr. Armstrong professes interest in "a sane and lasting peace." That is just what CSI bargained and paid for in the 1986 Settlement and is just what its efforts to enforce that agreement have been aimed at. Since my involvement began in early 1992, I have been witness to a multitude of actions on the part of Mr. Armstrong which were clear attempts to provoke action by CSI. Despite these clear provocations, CSI has acted with remarkable restrain, and has only sought relief for the most egregious of Mr. Armstrong's actions. A meeting between Messrs. Miscavige and Armstrong would serve no purpose. Mr. Miscavige has no involvement with Mr. Armstrong and has not even seen him since 1981. This matter is between Armstrong and CSI. We seek nothing more than the peace we have already bargained for. If Mr. Armstrong would simply obey the Court's permanent injunction, there would be peace. Armstrong, on the other hand, while he professes only a desire for peace, actually wants to ignore his obligations under the Settlement Agreement and the Court's injunctive order. If he wants peace, he can abide by that agreement, and there is no need for any meeting. If he wants something other than that, CSI is unwilling to negotiate. However, in the interests of courtesy, I will be happy to meet with either you or Mr. Armstrong, or both of you, on CSI's behalf and to discuss whatever is appropriate. Very truly yours, WILSON CAMPILONGO LLP Andrew H. Wilson AHW-1978.LTR ***** Additional comments: 1. The letter of 10/21/96 to Craig Branch of the Watchman Fellowship and the 5/10/93 black PR doc are included in the documents I provided Grady Ward pursuant to subpoena. Perhaps Grady, Keith, Dennis or someone could scan and post these 2 docs so that the Abbott letter becomes clear. 2. A. Wilson responds on behalf of CSI, implies he represents all the org recipients, and is off topic. B. Wilson attacks Abbott. Expected of a cult lawyer, but bad form. C. Wilson asserts that the California Court of Appeal dismissed my arguments out of hand. Untrue. The Court stated that it would not address my defenses at that time, but would leave the Sohigian preliminary injunction in place as it was not an abuse of discretion. The Sohigian injunction, by the way, permitted me to speak and write freely, and only not voluntarily assist *claimants* against the cult. D. It is important, useful, and damning of Scientology that Wilson emphasizes that "...[I am not] free to communicate orally, in writing or by any other legal means available to [me] to fully correct..." "alleged lies and distortions." E. Wilson states that "[m] sole remedy is to seek appropriate relief for alleged defamatory statements." Except that the "settlement agreement" does not permit such. How can a defamation action be filed and prosecuted without communicating to anyone about the facts or the defamers? During the pendency of the action, Scientology can unleash its black pr machine on the world about me and the litigation, and I cannot respond? F. Wilson states: "I have reviewed the documents which you allege are defamatory and am unable to find any statement concerning Mr. Armstrong, much less one which is defamatory." This really why I hope Grady or someone can scan and post the defamatory documents, because it will make obvious what a liar Wilson is. The 5/10/93 black pr doc is eight pages of statements concerning me. G. Wilson winds up by threatening Abbott ("subjecting yourself to liability") and libeling me one more time. I hereby challenge David Miscavige to identify one person who he asserts has ever been a victim of, as he puts it, my "pathology." 3. A. I found the 1023 on Maureen Garde's web page. B. It is possible that this 1023 submission was in 1991. If so it is even more helpful. C. It should be understood that Miscavige and his co- conspirators made this submission containing lies about me, and at least other "settling" claimants Laurel Sullivan and Michael Flynn, while the cult considered it held us gagged and unable to respond to the lies in the submission. D. The importance of the Armstrong litigation to both the IRS and the cult is revealed in this languange in the 1023 form: "The [Internal Revenue] Service has continuously thrust the Armstrong case at [the Scientology organization]..." "The IRS CID (Criminal Investigation Division) absorbed Judge Breckenridge's findings as the definitive statement of what Scientology is, and used this decision and the Flynn witnesses who testified at trial as the nucleus of their investigation." E. Any help that anyone can give in an analysis of the 1023 submission and its false statements would be extremely valuable. If someone can also let me know where copies of whatever Scientology has submitted to the IRS are located or obtainable it would be very useful. F. I am now available to communicate to any foreign government officials about these matters, especially wherever Scientology has used its IRS tax exemption to support or advance its activities in those foreign countries. Non-US ars stalwarts, let your people know. G. If anyone has any contacts in the US government or media anywhere who might be interested, please tell them I am able to communicate freely on this subject. I also welcome communications from literary agents and publishers. H. If any reader has any funds to spare to forward the correction of the Scientology problem, please send to my attorney in this matter, George W. Abbott, at the address given. Please ask your friends and ask your friends to ask their friends. This is not a chain letter. A great deal of good can be done by one litigant against the whole Scientology organization with very little money. Help as you're able. Someone suggested when it was announced that Judge Thomas had fined me $1000 and sent me to jail for the 1/27/97 declaration that a collection be taken up to pay the fine. I will try to resolve the fine and sentence myself. A collection sent to George Abbott for a RICO lawsuit is money more profitably invested. Write on your check "for Armstrong RICO Case." I. Since David Miscavige has apparently not advised Scientologists of my communications and his false statements about me to the IRS, the Christian community, the media and the Scientologists themselves, I ask that any reader pass these things on to any Scientologists with whom they have any contact. All Scientologists have a right to learn of the jeopardy in which Miscavige has placed them. J. The help I would be to the Scientology organization is this: settle all litigations; dismantle the fair game and litigation machine; cancel all antisocial policies; cancel all "contracts" which limit anyone's civil rights; correct every lie. Simple, it could all be done in a week. There easily may come a time when the organization will not be given the opportunity to itself make these corrections, but they will be forcibly implemented. K. As with the 1993 black pr doc sent by Cathy Norman to Watchman Fellowship, Scientology, in violation of a direct order, did not produce its statements about me to the IRS in discovery in its cases against me in California State Court. L. The opportunities for discovery in a RICO case covering the cult's fifteen years of fair game against me are enormous. The RICO statute of limitations stretches back ten years. In reality, since every org, franchise, director, agent, lawyer and PI around the world are explicit "beneficiaries" of the illegal and illegally obtained "settlement agreement" and any injunction, each of those entities or persons is a potential defendant. 4. The 3/25/97 letter along with my 3/6/97 letter were refused by RTC and returned by the US Postal Service. 5. One final effort. 6. A. Wilson states that the organization bargained and paid for peace in the 1986 Settlement and that is just what its efforts to enforce that agreement have been aimed at. My position is that there is no peace where one party is free to shoot at the other, and does shoot, without the party shot at being able to respond. That concept is demonic, and it cannot be legally bought at any price. B. I take Miscavige's response, through attorney Wilson, to be a complete rejection of my peace offering. I am therefore proceeding with the 10-point plan of my 3/6/97 letter. I challenge David Miscavige to respond to my communications, and I challenge him to debate with me the fact that Scientology makes people stupid. We are moving out of the age of stupidity, and the truly stupid, foolishly afraid of wisdom, and holding fast to what they stupidly think makes them special, are for the moment truly dangerous. David, why not wise up? To ars, I welcome all help, and I thank everyone who has participated in successfully bringing the battle this far. Gerry Armstrong
