Tom Padgett's Child Custody Case
Padgett Litigation Update 34
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (The Truth)
MOTION IN LIMINE FILED February 7, 2001 On the same day Tom Cruise filed a petition for dissolution of marriage against his wife Nicole Kidman in Los Angeles, Scientologist Laura Vannoy Padgett filed a Motion in Limine to restrict evidence and gag the testimony from expert witnesses being flown from around North America for a critical 2 day hearing scheduled for February 23rd and 26th. Pending in the Western Kentucky circuit court are matters to "UNdisconnect" the minor child from his declared SP father Tom Padgett, adjust and modify child support according to statutes, and to award costs and fees. This motion to suppress, comes one day after a huge loss for the scientologists in Chicago in the Bunker case. Vannoy's lawyer Bill Whitledge noted in unsupported arguments that the following should be prohibited from the proceedings and records: 1. Any testimony relating to the health, mental or physical condition of the parties or the minor child. 2. Any evidence concerning Scientology or any matters re: religion in general. 3. No testimony of the Petitioner's or Respondent's character. 4. No testimony on alternative solutions to settlement of the issues, i.e. arbitration, mediation, or counselling. 5. No testimony about division of property or breakdown of the marriage. 6. No testimony which goes to custody of the minor child. In summarizing the Motion in Limine, Whitledge asserts his client's request for the exclusion of evidence is appropriate in the Court's consideration of issues pending, of which in part the Kentucky Court of Appeals just ruled the trial court committed error for not including "finality" language. Laura Vannoy Padgett does not want any final resolution in any matters. Child psychologists state this does NOT go to the best interests of the children involved to prevent closure - rather than keeping the litigation going and the mountains of paper flowing with no end in sight. Experts from the Wellspring Resource Center, a cult research and counselling facility in Ohio, say this case reeks of Kendrick Moxon style strategies and input to foil routine discovery and disclosure as well as to usurp usual and reasonable due process of law. Tom Padgett will file a response motion to strike and asking the court to hold sanctions against the Petitioner and her attorney for obstruction of justice and protracting vexatious litigation ploys - an L. Ron Hubbard doctrine alleged to be a "technology." In the meantime, the expert and material witnesses scheduled to fly in for the hearing are left in the lurch until further rulings are made. This motion is docketed for 9am Wednesday, February 14, 2001. Happy Valentines Day?!
