La Venda Van Schaick
La Venda Van Schaick was Hubbard Communication Area Secretary in Las Vegas for four years. She left Scientology in 1979. During her time as a Scientology staff member, she dealt with Scientology's Guardian Office and observed supposedly confidential auditing folders being sent to the Guardian Office for review. In 1980, she filed a $200-million class-action lawsuit against the Church of Scientology in Federal Court in Boston, contending that the church falsely promises to improve the lives of its members.
