Jeremy Pawloski reports in The Olympian:
An attorney for a former student of Ramthas School of Enlightenment is barred from asking the schools leader, JZ Knight, about alleged practices such as encouraging students to drink a liquid containing lye that, according to the former students affidavit, is supposed to accelerate our individual enlightenment.
“Thurston County Superior Court Judge Gary Tabor ruled Friday in anticipation of Knights videotaped deposition that will be part of a breach-of-contract lawsuit brought by JZK Inc. against former student Virginia Coverdale.
Tabor ruled that during Knights deposition, Coverdales attorney, Shawn Newman, can ask Knight only questions that are directly relevant to the lawsuit. The suit seeks damages in response to Coverdales release of videos showing Knight making derogatory comments about Mexicans, Catholics and others last year.”
