OSA Network Order No. 1271
LEGAL MATTERS AND FALSE IMPRESSIONS
(Taken from an LRH despatch of 2 February 1980.)
In briefing staffs on security, a mystery can be created that makes people feel something hush-hush is being done.
This is not the case.
Legal matters and tax matters have an attorney-client relationship. Where security of such a line, or the terminals concerned is violated, the attorney-client relationship is broken and the whole relationship can then be challenged. It must be stressed to any staff briefed that nothing illegal would be tolerated by me, much less ordered. The security must exist to prevent a breach of attorney-client relationship.
Hostile attorneys and agencies try to get bad press, try to serve subpoenas and try to discover the data and strategy being used. If they breach this line they can cause damage and defeat us.
This is why security exists.
