Civil Case # 92-CI-00444

An order was entered in the western Kentucky court by the Domestic
Relations Commissioner to overruled Laura Vannoy Padgett's Motion in
Limine to restrict the testimonies of experts being brought forth by Tom
Padgett.  The Petitioner's lawyer Bill Whitledge, tried to argue that
even the simple mention of the word "scientology" in the proceedings was
inappropriate, contemptuous, and  inadmissible.  Experts will be able to
address the issues of the cult as it relates to visitation, child
support, and arrearage matters.

The evidentiary hearing scheduled for February
23rd and 26th, was postponed to May 11th and
May 14th in the Hopkins Circuit Court in Madisonville, KY.  

Laura Padgett's witness list did not include any experts - only herself
and the parties' emancipated daughter.  Tom will object to Laura's
subpoenaing their children to keep them out of the middle of this very
damaging Hubbard mandated litigation protraction tactics. 

Continued efforts by Tom to settle through mediation and counseling
forums are being rejected by Laura Vannoy and her counselors.

The late 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."
     U.S. Congressman Leo J. Ryan, shortly
before being gunned downed by another
[totalitarian] cult in Jonestown, South America.
