Graham Berry has extensive personal experience and knowledge of Scientology copyrighted policies, practices and procedures for “the handling of Suppressive Persons” For example, The New York Village Voice, March 11, 2008, Tony Ortega, “How ‘Anonymous’ has Changed the Game of Exposing Scientology’s Ruthless Global Scam.”
“In another story, we put the lie to the church's claim that it no longer practices "Fair Game"--L. Ron's famous edict that his troops should engage in dirty tricks to bury its perceived enemies. In "Double Crossed," we detailed one of the most hellacious cases of Fair Game in recent years, the smearing of attorney Graham Berry with the use of a coerced, false affidavit claiming that Berry was a pederast who went after boys as young as 12. When the man who made that false affidavit, Robert Cipriano, was sued by Berry in a defamation suit, the church, in order to keep him from recanting his false claims, offered to represent him in the lawsuit for free, donated thousands to Cipriano's nonprofit projects, and even got him a house, a car, and a job at Earthlink (which had been founded by Scientologists).” You can see the story here Double Crossed, page 1 - News - Phoenix New Times - Phoenix New Times
Graham Berry is probably the most experienced anti-scientology lawyer. He has handled over fifteen cases against the cult. Scientology attorney Kendrick L. Moxon, Esq. and Gerald Chaleff, Esq., (now the Los Angeles Police Department Attorney) along with other attorneys had L.A. Superior Court Judge Alexander Williams, III declare Graham Berry a ‘vexatious litigant.’ They used blackmail, bribery and perjury (as established by both previous and subsequent testimony). Despite the requirements of the relevant statute not being met, and despite there being no effective right of appeal there from, Judge Williams entered a clearly baseless order. At the time the Judge’s fiancé was an employee of the Church of Scientology Office of Special Affairs, where Moxon, Kobrin and Ava Paquette also work, and by whom Gerald Chaleff, Esq. had been retained in his then capacity as a highly paid partner in the huge international law firm of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe. Also on the Church’s payroll in that ‘kangaroo court’ proceeding were a team of lawyers, led by Samuel Rosen, from the huge International law firm of Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, several lawyers from the local law firm of Simke & Chodos and Barry Soter from the local Scientology influenced law firm of Wasserman, Comden & Casselman. The illegal and unethical Scientology activities against Graham Berry were breathtaking in their arrogance, audacity and scope. There was overwhelming declaration, deposition and document evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that David Miscavige, OSA and certain of its attorneys and private investigators were involved, across state lines, in blackmail, bribery, subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice, false criminal and state bar complaints, wire tapping and other crimes. One retired Superior Court judge said just that to attorney Moxon who immediately dismissed the contrived and solicited Hurtado case against Graham Berry. One of Moxon’s own co-counsel testified to criminal conduct against Graham Berry. There was the testimony of over six witnesses, much of it corroborated by supporting and incriminating documents in Moxon’s own handwriting, and still the Scientology legal juggernaut from across the country snowed and corrupted the Judge Alexander Williams, III. The judge’s fiancé was employed by attorney Moxon’s own Church of Scientology International Office of Special Affairs. Judge Williams refused to recuse himself or to refer the recusal motion to another judge. The District Court of Appeals refused to intervene. One of Scientology’s phalanxes of nation wide counsel was married to one of the Appeals Court judges!
On January 21, 2002 Graham Berry submitted a criminal complaint to the Department of Justice. It included a June 1, 2001 letter from Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley’s office concluding that these very same matters should be addressed by the F.B.I. Although former D.A. Gil Garcetti, Esq. had refused to prosecute for “political reasons,” his successor stated that “because the crimes and wrongdoing crossed-state lines and involved practicing attorneys, the [Federal Bureau of Investigation] was best equipped to handle the matter.” Indeed, the L.A.P.D. had itself recommended prosecution by the L.A. District Attorney. However, Scientology was able to squash that with the transfer of senior Scientology attorney Gerald Chaleff, Esq. from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliff, where he had led the fraudulent vexatious litigant proceeding against Berry, to the City Attorneys Office where he joined the leadership team one week before the Berry decision, with District Attorney Garcetti, not to prosecute the Scientology executives, attorneys and private investigators “for political reasons.”
Many dozens of other people, perhaps hundreds, wrote in support of Graham Berry’s criminal complaint, both to the D.O.J. and the U.S. Congress, concerning related requests to various congressional committees. All were ignored or provided with ridiculous responses such as “no Federal matter was involved.” The DOJ did not request any of the massive supporting evidence and testimony and provided no opportunity for any meeting. On August 21, 2002, a paralegal within the Department wrote that there were “no prosecutable violations of federal civil rights involved.”

It is important to note that these “fair game activities” are continuing against Graham Berry and the “fruits of these criminal activities” continue to be used against him. The May 5, 2008 Judgment Debtor examination is a good example. This week Graham E. Berry will be launched with a collection of Fair Game information & hyper-links.
