The Fishman Papers

The case file for Church of Scientology International v. Fishman and Geertz contains over 700 documents. This web page presents a declaration filed by Steven Fishman on April 9, 1993 in which he included the OT (Operating Thetan) materials as exhibits. Links to a few other interesting affidavits are given at the end of the page. The order form for these materials will not be honored now, since the judge sealed the files on August 15, 1995.

Declaration and Exhibits

OT (Operating Thetan) Materials

The following portions of the court record have been voluntarily removed pending an assessment by Carnegie Mellon's legal counsel of the Church's claims of copyright and trade secret protection. However, copies of the complete Fishman declaration are still available online at several other sites. Note: the Church claims the OT VIII documents are forgeries.
