GREG and DEBRA BARNES herewith declare the following:
we have made non-refundable donations to the International Association
of Scientologists ("IAS") in the amount of US$ 40,660. With
the receipt of a return of that amount, being all funds ever donated by
us to the IAS on our behalf and on behalf of our children, we waive all
claims and rights against the IAS. All our claims against the IAS are
settled for any legal reason with the receipt of the above sum.
we, our heirs, our successors, representatives, agents, employees,
attorneys and assigns release and forever discharge the International
Association of Scientologists, IAS Administrations, and their respective
successors, agents, officers, directors, divisions, shareholders,
trustees, fundraisers and employees from any and all claims, damages,
causes of action of any kind which we now have or may hereafter have,
from the beginning of time, to and including the effective date of this
we understand that the term "any and all claims" as used
above, means and includes, but is not limited to, all claims of any
kind, whether known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, past or
present, contingent or fixed. We agree that the term "any and all
claims" shall be interpreted liberally and as sufficiently
comprehensive so that this agreement precludes any and all disputes,
litigation or controversy brought by the undersigned.
we have resigned our memberships and those of our children in the IAS.
we are signing this Release and Waiver on our own free will and
we have read this Release and Waiver and understand completely each of
its conditions and stipulations.
Afterword from Stacy Brooks:
guess this successful correspondence shows that the old Scientology
maxim, "When in doubt, communicate," is still effective, at
least in certain parts of the organization.
