"The author's experience of Scientology stretches over a period of 14 years from when it was a little known and interesting form of psychotherapy, to September 1968 when he was declared an S.P. (Suppressive Person). This meant that he was considered 'Fair Game'. As Sir Elwyn Jones Q.C. said in the recent Scientology libel case, S.Ps. 'could be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist. He could be tricked, sued or lied to, or destroyed.' The direct cause of this action was the breakdown of the author's marriage and separation of his children.''

NOTE: On Feb. 7, 2003, Apologetics Index received a legal challenge from a Scientology lawyer claiming that The Road to Xenu, posted at this site as a PDF file, included several copyright violations. We believe the material quoted in that book - which has been available online (at so-called Bulletin Board Systems) since before the dawn of the World Wide Web - falls within the 'fair use' copyright clause. However, while we are discussing this with our legal advisers, we have temporarily removed the file in question - and instead are linking to the same item as available elsewhere on the Internet. For a list of additional sites where the The Road to Xenu is available, see this Google search. Meanwhile, remember that Scientology's scriptures - as written by its founder, L. Ron Hubbard - view the law as a tool to harass people with:
The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than to win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is not authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly.
L. Ron Hubbard, A Manual on the Dissemination of Material, 1955 (See: The Purpose of a Lawsuit is to Harass)
