Scientology’s reclusive leader, David Miscavige, has 21 days to respond to allegations from a human-trafficking case brought by three Australian residents after nearly a year of avoiding legal service.

Gawain Baxter, Laura Baxter and Valeska Paris have claimed in a civil case lodged in Florida that they had endured horrendous emotional, physical and psychological abuse while in Scientology.

Now a US magistrate has ruled that Miscavige had been concealing his whereabouts for nearly a year and declared him officially served in the case.

Miscavige, leader of Scientology since 1986, had been named in the lawsuit filed last April, along with five Scientology-related organisations. He had been the only defendant to not have been served.

The court heard allegations from plaintiff lawyers that Miscavige had evaded service 27 times, including by ordering security at Scientology properties to prevent the summons from being delivered. Miscavige’s lawyers had also refused to accept service for him last month.

  1. Even Australia “down under” is reporting about David Miscavige finally being “served” as a defendant in a labor trafficking lawsuit filed by alleged victims.
