Marshals also served human rights rights activist Mr. Arnaldo Lerma, 44, with a restraining order barring him from revealing more of the syndicate's documents which expose the crimes and human rights abuses that the sdyndicate commits in a fake federal copyright infringement suit filed by the syndicate Friday.

Scientology's Antagonists: Human Rights Heros
August 13, 2008, Lauren Smiley, SF Weekly
An ex-Scientologist and an army of online pranksters attempt to bring down the controversial "religion."
But Gorman's loyalty to Scientology turned to rage against it in 2001, after his then-teenage friend Jennifer Stewart, now his wife, alleged she was forcibly raped by an adult staff member of the Mountain View branch of the church. Both say that Scientology officials, including Quiros, urged them not to go to the police. Scientology staffers vigorously deny both allegations. In a later civil suit, the "church" weighed the bad press that might come from the "incendiary" allegations coming out at trial and paid Stewart a handsome 2005 out-of-court settlement that barely made the news.
