Commonwealth of Kentucky
Court of Appeals
Frankfort, Kentucky 40601
Case # 99-CA-001461-MR

Thomas Carter Padgett, Appellant
Laura Vannoy Padgett, Appellee


        On June 6, 2000, this Court passed J.
Russell Lloyd's and Joseph V. Mobley's motion to withdraw as counsel for
appellant and directed attorneys Lloyd and Mobley to file a response
with the Clerk of this Court including more information regarding the
basis of motion to withdraw.  On June 12, 2000, this Court received
attorneys Lloyd and Mobley's response.
         Having now considered the passed motion to withdraw as counsel,
the Court
ORDERS the motion be, and is hereby, GRANTED.  The above-styled appeal
is ORDERED to be ABATED for a period of
thirty (30) days from the date of entry of this
order to allow the appellant time to obtain new
counsel, notification of which shall be deferred
back to this  Court immediately thereafter.
Failure to retain new counsel on appeal on or before thirty (30) days
from the date of entry of
this Order shall result in the above-styled appeal being returned to the
Court's ACTIVE
DOCKET with appellant proceeding pro se.
         Appellant's brief shall be due on before
sixty (60) days from the date on which the appeal is returned to this
Court's active docket.
        The Clerk of this Court is DIRECTED to
MAIL a copy of this order to appellant at the following address the date
of entry of this
Order: Tom Padgett, P.O. Box 414, South Orleans, MA 02662.

                              CHIEF JUDGE,
                              COURT OF APPEALS
July 5, 2000

This order may seem routine.  The cultists got
to Tom's lawyers.  They WANT him to proceed
pro se and fail on some "technical" procedural
rule absent of merits and facts. The added twist
is a separate criminal fugitive of justice charge
will put him on the run and in jail so even if tried
file a brief pro se, he couldn't!!  They will NOT let any outside
(out-of-state) counsel enter on
his behalf.   This is what is called blatant
HYPER-RAILROADING!  Btw, Mobley & Lloyd's
motion to withdraw was based on Padgett's low income ability to pay
their fees.

Dr. Joly West, MD, and cult mind control
expert, proclaimed "children are at the greatest risk from Scientology!"

"Thank you for your very detailed letter regarding scientology.  We
haven't yet found a way to attack these jackals who feed on children and
young adults who are too emotionally weak to stand by themselves when
they reach the age of consent."

before being gunned downed by another
[totalitarian] cult in Jonestown, South America.
