I love and respect the people for putting their names on that petition to the court!

HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE

An Assistant Guardian may convene a board with permission of the Guardian whose
authority the Assistant Guardian uses.

HCO Area Sec on any executive or staff member in their portion of the organisation but not
cross-portion (i.e. the HCO Exec Sec may not convene a board in the Org portion and the Org
Exec Sec may not convene a board on the HCO portion).

The Advisory Council may convene a board on an LRH Communicator and anyone
else except the Executive Director and the Guardian, but not on a senior org.
Other convening authorities may convene a board on their equals in rank or on juniors.

PURPOSE

The purpose of a Board of Investigation is:
10 HELP LRH DISCOVER THE CAUSE IN ANY CONFLICT, POOR
PERFORMANCE OR DOWN STATISTIC.

COMPOSITION
A Board of Investigation is composed of not less than 3 and not more than 5 members.
A majority of the members must be senior to the persons being investigated except
when this is impossible.

CONDUCT
The Board may investigate by calling in a body on the persons concerned or by sitting
and summoning witnesses or principals.

FUNCTION
A Board of Investigation is a much less serious affair than a Committee of Evidence.
Persons appearing before it are not under duress or punishment.
The whole purpose is to get at the facts.

569

No disciplinary measure may result except for false attestation.
The Board may recommend an Executive Ethics Hearing or an Ethics Hearing if
crimes or high crimes are found but may take no action on errors or misdemeanors.
False attestation before a Board must result in an Executive Ethics Hearing or Ethics
Hearing.

FINDINGS
The findings of a Board of Investigation are sent to the convening authority and from
this orders can be issued or the convening authority can request action or policy from higher
authority. (The method of making policy is not changed.)

FORM
In all other ways the form of a Board, its orders, conduct and finding is the same as in
a Committee of Evidence.

COMMITTEE OF EVIDENCE
A Committee of Evidence is convened on the subject of a known crime or high crime
as it has come to be looked on (and is) a trial by jury, there being a charge.
A board may recommend a Committee of Evidence.

HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE
Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 31 OCTOBER 1966 Issue II
Remimeo

BOARDS OF INVESTIGATION (Adds to HCO Pol Ltr of 4 June 1966)

A Board of Investigation may (and should) be convened any time there is an unusual
improvement in an org or its statistics.

Such a Board must (a) isolate the reasons or changes which brought about the improvement;
(b) draw up their findings in the form of policy or directives to pass them on to
the convening authority; and (c) recommend commending any person found responsible for
the improvement (the Board does not commend, it only recommends, the convening authority
alone may issue the commendation).

FORM OF FINDINGS
All findings of a Board of Investigation must be phrased in terms that may be issued
without change by a convening authority as a directive or, by the proper additional lines, policy.
The convening authority may alter this wording but it must be written so that it does
not need to be re-written.

Would a description of the settlement be at the courthouse?

Probably not. Usually when I see things those last 2 docket entries, they only state that there is a mutual agreement satisfactory to both plaintiff and specific defendent, along with a request to dismiss sent in my the plaintiff stating this, which the judge has signed after verifying both parties have agreed..

Scientology and Narocnon are notorious for gag agreements - non disclosure agreements used in settlements . They don't want people knowing the terms of what they settled for or what poeople suing them settled for.

 Would the settlement agreements from both Delgado Development and Dr. Robbins bolster the plaintiffs case against defendants Narconon of Georgia and Narconon International? I take a settlement as an admission of guilt ergo stopping the potential financial award that a jury could deem appropriate if in fact said defendants were found culpable if they in fact went to trial.
