7 February 1988
OSA Network Order No. 1341
(Taken from an undated LRH despatch.)
Law suits and their threat to all Scientology corporations can occur by reason of violations of corporate regularity or imagined violations. Hostile attorneys simply seek to take advantage of various real or imagined violations.
The best defense is to demonstrate corporate regularity and individuality. Preservation of corporate individuality and the continued separateness of copyrights and books and their copyright owner will defeat any current attacks if it can be ably demonstrated.
The formula would be preserving and pointing out separateness in all cases where attackers are seeking to establish a generality.
Court precedents, corporate law, copyright law all favor our side. Only if hostile attorneys can enter sweeping, false generalities into the scene and maintain them can they win. Generalities are easy to state and grasp and so tend to be acceptable in court unless they are crisply and expertly broken down. Hostile attorneys, in seeking to establish generalities, utter and introduce many falsehoods. The isolation of these and DAing them can break any such case.
