OSA Network Order No. 1091
When someone is suing the Church, a countersuit needs to be filed right away. The counter suit is shared by all those concerned. For example, if they are suing the Church for $200 million, then you sue them for half a billion bucks. This would be done despite other actions taken. The countrysides would be hefty.
You could also file criminal actions independent of any suit.
Any lawyer that starts cautioning, get another lawyer immediately. He might say, “You can’t really do that…,” “You have to be careful about that…,” etc. There might be a valid point of warning but he would not offer any solution to attack. The lawyer is there to win the case. The sign of a bad lawyer is that he will attack you. You want a lawyer who believes he is going to make something out of it.
What has been solved here is how to make the defending attorney (our attorney) eager. If he wins the countersuit, he wins a bundle even greater than the attacking attorney.
You could turn Legal around by telling them it is time we had a win and get back to their leading position and let’s make people afraid of us again.
