As has been explained to me, I *will* lose this contempt motion simply because I cannot not be there and the rules of evidence require my presence for the court to take notice McShane's conflicting declarations. (Even if I did try, I would be arrested getting off the plane and still lose the contempt motion.) As we saw in Bob Minton's case, the cult operates the US court system as a weapon against those who would warn the public about the dangers to mental health, pocketbook and health it presents. The courts are a very expensive weapon, but if you have enough money, they are very effective one.

Dear Judge Whyte:
This supplemental letter is to create a public record re the contempt motion to be heard Sept. 20, 2002.
In Warren McShane's declaration signed July 24, 2002, he states: "NOTs 56 is a copyrighted, unpublished work to which RTC holds exclusive the exclusive rights."
January 19, 2001 Mr. McShane stated under oath in a trial in Sweden:
"McShane: OT2 consists of 27 works. There are other parts of OT2 that are not confidential. OT3 consists of 37 works, plus non-confidential material that is part of the course. The NOTs consist of 55 works; the whole course is greater and contains non-confidential works."
In your order in this case dated 4/14/97 you reference a declaration of Warren McShane in footnote 1:
"NOTs Series 34 is part of the collective work known as Advanced Technology, allegedly written by L. Ron Hubbard. Specifically, it is one of 55 individual works contained in the copyrighted NOTs Series. See Declaration of Warren McShane in Support of Motion for Partial Summary Judgment as to Copyright Claims for Relief ('McShane Decl.')"
Since I cannot be there, I may be found in contempt for asking publicly for someone to send me a copy of a parody, NOTs 56, that I wrote, the origin of which was explained in plaintiff's own exhibit 13 and (by previous plaintiff's testimony in this case and others) number 56 is not part of the NOTs series.
Now against previous testimony before this court, the plaintiff claims to have a NOTs 56. This is not an innocent error. A mother is more likely to forget how many children she has than Warren McShane is to not know exactly how many NOTs there are in the series. I believe this contempt claim was made on the assumption that I could not be there to testify and point out the inconsistency with previous testimony. If the court abides by the rules of evidence I presume it will work.
If I was there, I would suggest $100 million in sanctions for RTC's committing blatant perjury and fraud on the court. Upon reconsideration, $10 million is only 4 months litigation budget for Scientology; $100 million is about three years. Possibly that would be enough to dissuade the cult from coming back to your court and committing additional frauds on the court.
Very Truly Yours,
H. Keith Henson

No word from the Judge. Hearing this Friday. Expect to be found in contempt for asking for NOTs 56, when McShane has claimed in previous testimony their were only 55 of them, and I wrote 56. He really should be sanctioned for perjury, but the cult normally gets away with that.
But there are positive aspects if the expected miscarriage of justice happen. If it goes against me, it will be really useful here in my refugee hearing.
