A continuation of our series, this initial 1947 filing indicates LRH's first wife Louise "Polly" did not want her valued inheritance property, nor her children, to be vulnerable to the kind of "sharing" practiced by the "deserter" and her soon-to-be-ex husband L. Ron Hubbard.
A series of links are presented below.
The first link is to the Youtube video from "Freedom Magazine" attacking filmmaker Alex Gibney with photographs and accusations directed at Sara Northrup Hubbard (starting at about 6:30 into the video).
The second link is a brief selection from a 1968 documentary, where L. Ron Hubbard declares that he "never had a second wife".
The following link is a "Scribd" file of copies of official court documents, which were long-thought to have gone missing but were instead acquired from associates of heirs of a participating attorney. Within these 15 pages, the founder of Scientology contradicts his own later public claims, and it is most notable to observe that all these official filings bear original signatures of L. Ron Hubbard himself. All these are from June 1951, excepting the final page where LRH goes back on his financial commitment, from 1953.
It can now be asked: If L. Ron Hubbard couldn't even tell the truth about his own life, including statements made under oath that concerned his own family, how can the public be expected to believe any claims he made about the religion he created, the Church of Scientology?
Meepthorp advocates support for all media which exposes the truth about Scientology, including viewings of "Going Clear".

"Not a fit and proper person": The Documents of L. Ron Hubbard, Part 3
In his award-winning documentary "Going Clear" filmmaker Alex Gibney dared to expose the dark sides of the Church of Scientology.
In retaliation, "Freedom Magazine" posted a video titled "Alex Gibney, Stacking the Deck" on Youtube, which questioned some of the methods used and sources cited by Mr. Gibney, at a time when "Going Clear" is in consideration for additional nominations (such as for the Academy awards).
About 6:30 into the "Freedom Magazine" video, statements are made defaming Sara Northrup Hubbard, who married L. Ron Hubbard in 1946 and bore him a child. Notably, L. Ron Hubbard later denied having a matrimonial or patrimonial relationship with Sara.
Meepthorp has declared it is time to directly expose the lies of L. Ron Hubbard.
Filmmaker Alex Gibney, "Freedom Magazine" and Documents of L. Ron Hubbard
A continuation of our series, this August 1951 filing shows the vengeance of L Ron Hubbard, where he disparages the woman who birthed his eldest children while legally "hiding" behind the declaration from his attorneys. Even scarier, is where he seeks custody of his 17-year-old son L. Ron Hubbard Jr. for "training" purposes (which were later described in a notorious 1983 magazine interview).
Link below is to the "notorious" article about L Ron Hubbard Jr, after he had changed his name to Ronald De Wolfe
Bigamy, Lies, and a "Cult": The Documents of L. Ron Hubbard, Part 2
ONLINE VENUE OF THE DARK LORD OF THE CHURCH OF NEUROTOLOGY
(as seen on Saturday Night Live)
In the State of Washington, first-wife Polly informs the court that not only did L. Ron Hubbard abandon her and their children in 1945, he also committed bigamy when he married a 2nd wife in Maryland in 1946 without bothering to obtain a formal divorce from her!
Polly described how L. Ron Hubbard went on to promote a "cult" named Dianetics in 1950, but didn't follow through on his obligations to provide financial support for his own children even when he had ample resources to do so. Polly also informs the court here of yet another lie told by L. Ron Hubbard, about needing an "emergency" hearing to return to Bremerton, Washington, when in fact he did not travel there after the hearing in Kansas! Harsh words, from someone who likely knew LRH better than anyone else.
This court filing dates about a week after the conclusion of the "emergency" divorce hearings in mid-June 1951 in Wichita, Kansas.
