HISTORY

Kendrick Moxon
Kendrick Moxon
holds a B.A. in Anthropology and a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from George Mason University
George Mason University
. Before becoming Scientology's lead in-house attorney, he worked in the Church's Guardian's Office (subsequently usurped by the Office of Special Affairs ) under Mary Sue Hubbard . During Operation Snow White
Operation Snow White
, in which eleven Scientologists pleaded guilty or were convicted in federal court, Moxon was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator for providing false handwriting samples to the FBI in response to a Grand Jury subpoena . According to the Phoenix New Times , Moxon has stated that "he didn't knowingly supply false handwriting samples and that the stipulation of evidence was something signed by church officials but written by FBI agents. He says the matter was thoroughly investigated by two bar associations – in D.C. and in California – before they admitted him as an attorney. Moxon is in good standing with the bar associations in both jurisdictions."

Helena Kempner Kobrin (born April 27, 1948) received her B.A. at Hofstra University and her J.D. at Seton Hall University . She was admitted to the bar in 1978, and at the California bar in 1991. She caused controversy on usenet in the mid-1990s when she tried to get the newsgroup alt.religion.scientology shut down, and later e-mailed legal warnings to participants who had quoted as few as six lines of Scientology

texts.
