CoS har visst ikke så mye imot at saken droppes:
According to the Texas Supreme Court’s online docket, the Church of Scientology has confirmed that it is unopposed to the motion filed last week by Monique Rathbun, who has asked for a stay in her case so she can dismiss her lawsuit outright.
Meanwhile, at his blog, Monique’s husband, Mark “Marty” Rathbun, announced Monday that “there was no settlement” to end the case.
Our Texas legal expert, an attorney who has handled appellate matters there and goes by the handle “TexasLawyer,” had told us that it appeared to him the case was ending without a settlement, even though many of our readers have assumed that the Rathbuns must have worked out some kind of financial agreement with Scientology after news broke in February that Monique had fired her entire legal team in the three-year lawsuit.
Monique, in her motion to lift the stay, claimed that her former attorneys saddled her with a poorly written complaint, failed to take her suggestions for legal strategy under consideration, and had tried to convince her that the lawsuit had little potential for a substantial monetary reward.
Her former attorney Ray Jeffrey denied that, telling us, “I strongly disagree with any implication that the lawyers were unwilling to go forward because there was not enough money in the case. We were fired, we didn’t abandon the case.”
