PARTIES: Purportedly, L. Ron Hubbard, Trustor; "Church of Spiritual Technology" (CST), primary beneficiary; "Norman F. Starkey, Trustee; the law firm of law firm of Lenske, Lenske & Heller named in the trust instrument as counsel for the Trustee; Stephen A. Lenske, Sherman D. Lenske, and Lawrence E.

BACKGROUND AND NOTES

This was posted to the newsgroup alt.religion.scientology, and we cannot attest to its accuracy or correctness. It is provided by us strictly as-is as a study and research aid for those interested in comparing the trust instruments. As with all documents and reports on this site, it is not intended in any way as legal advice, nor should it be used as such.

Here it is as it was posted:




This report is the result of a side-by-side comparison of the trust
instruments for AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A and AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B. Two
paralegals did the comparisons, one reading AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A
aloud while the other read AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B along silently,
indicating where every difference occurred . Then a computerized
comparison was done on each section that had been marked as being
different using software designed specifically for such comparisons.
The results are outlined and commented below.

This report is not a legal analysis of the differences; it is only a
presentation of the differences, provided as an aid to legal analysis.
Nothing in this document is intended as legal advice, nor should
anything in this document be construed or used as legal advice.

In isolating the differences, the following four classes of
"differences" have been eliminated from the comparison:

1. TYPOGRAPHICAL ERRORS: E.g., "agains" rather than "against;"
"pursuatn" rather than "pursuant." In places these were spelled
correctly in one document, and spelled incorrectly in the other. These
could be attributable to OCR errors, or typist errors, or intentional
errors to foil comparisons. Such errors are not fatal or challengeable
in legal documents except where egregious and materially affecting the
meaning and legal interpretation of the document.

2. OMISSION OF GRAMMATICAL ARTICLES AND OTHER TERMS: The word "the" was
included in places in one document, but excluded in the other document,
e.g., "as the Trustee" vs. "as Trustee." In one place the word "shall"
was included in one document but omitted from the other, but in such a
way that does not materially alter the meaning of the sentence:
"provided that any such loan be adequately secured" vs. "provided that
any such loan shall be adequately secured." These could also be
interpreted in the manner of typographical errors.

3. SINGULAR VS. PLURAL: In some cases a term had a trailing "s" in one
document but not in the other. These discrepencies between documents,
though, are all covered by the "singular/plural" clause at "Choice of
Law, Gender, Number and Headings" in each of the contracts, and so are
null as regards legal interpretation.

4. NUMBERING OF CONTRACTUAL ARTICLES: They are different in the two
documents, but the numbering has no legal ramifications as is covered in
"Choice of Law, Gender, Number and Headings" in each of the contracts.
E.g., "TRUSTEE'S POWERS" is "ARTICLE SEVEN" in one of the documents, and
"ARTICLE EIGHT" in the other. Since the numbering has no legal
significance (except where one Article references another Article in the
same document), we have omitted the Article numbers from this
comparison, using, instead, only the Article subject titles.

Introductory paragraphs of each document, which only established the
parties and dates of execution, were ignored.

This left six (6) sections, or Articles, of the two documents that were
different enough to include in this report.

Note that this presentation of differences contains none of the sections
that were identical in both documents. This is not to minimize the
possible importance of those sections in any legal analysis. This
presentation, below, is only to facilitate the identification of
sections of the two documents that are different.

I. AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B ONLY
No comparable article is in AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

RECITALS GIVING RISE TO THIS
AMENDED AGREEMENT
On May 10, 1982, Trustor created the AUTHOR'S FAMILY
TRUST, for the benefit of his family, friends and the
religion of Scientology, of which he is the Founder. By this
instrument, Trustor intends to amend and (for the sake of
convenience) restate the AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST. In declaring
this Trust, Trustor has made few changes in the ultimate
disposition of the assets to be held by the Trustee herein.


II. NAMES OF TRUSTS
The only difference in this Article is the rather obvious
self-referencing names of the trusts, but is included here anyway:

A. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

NAMES OF TRUSTS
The Trusts created in this instrument may be referred
to collectively as the AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A and each
separate Trust created in this Agreement, unless otherwise
provided, may be referred to by adding the name of the
beneficiary.

B. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B:

NAMES OF TRUSTS
The Trusts created in this instrument may be referred
to collectively as the AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B and each
separate Trust created in this Agreement, unless otherwise
provided, may be referred to by adding the name of the
beneficiary.


III. DISPOSITIVE PROVISIONS UPON TRUSTOR'S DEATH
This section reflects the greatest differences in the two documents.
AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A references AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B only as "that
certain AMENDED TRUST AGREEMENT of even date." AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B
references and includes AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A by name, and also spells
out in detail the disposition of all the assets:

A. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

DISPOSITIVE PROVISIONS
UPON TRUSTOR'S DEATH
Upon the death of the Trustor all principal and
accumulated income, together with all distributions to this
trust from any probate estate, life insurance proceeds or
other source shall be held, administered and distributed in
accordance with the provisions of that certain AMENDED TRUST
AGREEMENT of even date, between L. RON HUBBARD, as Trustor,
and NORMAN F. STARKEY, as Trustee, including any amendments
made to such Trust Agreement prior to the death of Trustor.


B. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B:

DISPOSITIVE PROVISIONS
UPON TRUSTOR'S DEATH
Upon the death of the Trustor all principal and

and clear of all liens and encumbrances, or assessments and
taxes of any kind which are due as of the date of the
transfer. If Trustor's wife fails to survive for the
requisite period, the distributions pursuant to this
paragraph A shall be distributed in accordance with paragraph
G of this ARTICLE SIX.
B. _Specific Distributions to Trustor's Named Children._
As soon as is convenient following Trustor' s death the

C. _Specific Distributions to Grandchildren: As soon
as is convenient following Trustor's death the Trustee shall

of Trustor's death and who shall survive Trustor by thirty
(30) days, the sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000). In
no event shall any distribution, pursuant to this paragraph
C, be made to the issue of any other child of Trustor,
whether such child is living or deceased on the date hereof.
D. _Distribution Retained in Trust._ Any distribution
provided for in paragraphs B, C or D of this ARTICLE SIX to
a person who at the time of such distribution shall be under
the age of twenty-two (220 shall be retained in trust by the
Trustee as a separate share and be held and administered as
otherwise provided in this instrument and be distributed as
follows:
The Trustee shall accumulate the net income of such
person's share. The Trustee may apply so much of the
accumulated income and principal of said person's share as
the Trustee in the Trustee's absolute discretion may from
time to time deem necessary or advisable for such person's
proper health, maintenance, support and education until said
person attains the age of twenty-two (22) years. Upon each
person attaining the age of twenty-two (22) years, the
Trustee shall distribute and deliver all of the remaining
balance of said person's share of the Trust Estate to said
person. If any of said persons should die prior to attaining
the age of twenty-two (22) years, then upon such person's
death all of the balance of such deceased person's share of
the Trust Estate shall be distributed to his or her then
living issue, said issue to take by right of representation,
or if there should be no such issue of such deceased person
then living, then upon such person's death all the balance o
such share of the Trust Estate shall be distributed in equal
shares to the brothers and sisters then living of the whole
blood of such deceased person, if any, and if none, then to
the lawful issue then living of any deceased brother or
sister of the whole blood who shall take by right of
representation, or if there be none then the remaining
balance of such share of the Trust Estate shall be
distributed to those of the Trustor's isse hen living who are
beneficiaries or issue of beneficiaries specified in
subparagraphs 1, 2 and 3 of Paragraph B and Paragraph C of
this ARTICLE SIX above. Said issue shall take by right of
representation, provided that if the Trustee is then holding
another trust hereunder for the primary benefit of any such
issue of the Trustor, his or her share shall augment prorata
the distributed and undistributed portions of said trust and
shall be held and administered as if it had been an original
part of such trust. No distribution pursuant to this
Paragraph D shall be made to any of the following or their
issue: ALEXIS HOLLISTER and LAFAYETTE RONALD HUBBARD, JR.,
also known as L. RON HUBBARD, JR., also known as NIBS
HUBBARD, also known as RONALD DeWOLF. it is believed that
QUENTIN HUBBARD died, without issue: however, should the
existence of issue become known at a later date, such
purported issue shall receive no distributions hereunder.
E. _Support Trust._ At the time of execution of this
Trust Trustor is married to MARY SUE HUBBARD and is providing
her with approximately $8,000.00 per month, after tax, for
her support, maintenance and comfort. If she shall survive
Trustor, the purpose of this Trust is to assure, to the
extent possible, that after Trustor's death, she receive
sufficient support to maintain a comparable standard of
living. Trustor believes that $10,000.00 per month tax free
will be sufficient to assure Trustor's wife of a comparable
standard of living. If Trustor's wife does not survive
Trustor, then the distribution provided for in this paragraph
E shall be distributed as provided in Paragraph G below. It
is further Trustor's intention to provide this support
through a qualified terminable interest property trust, which
shall be eligible for the federal estate marital deduction
allowable under the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981 and the
Trustee is hereby authorized to join with the Executor of
Trustor's estate in making any election necessary to so
qualify such trust.
The Trustee shall, in his sole discretion, determine
the amount to be set aside to this Support Trust. In
exercising such discretion, the Trustee shall first adjust
the $10,000.00 monthly support by increasing or decreasing
such amount in the same ratio as the Consumer Price Index of
the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor
Statistics, for all Urban Consumers, Loas Angeles/Long
Beach/Anaheim Metropolitan Area, Los Angeles, California, or
any substitute or successor index published by the Department
of Labor, shall have changed from the first day of the month
in which this Agreement is executed to the month of Trustor's
death. Taking into account the figure thus arrived at,
Trustor's wife's then life expectancy, the anticipated rate
of inflation and investment yields over that expectancy, and
anticipated Federal and State income tax rates, the Trustee
is to fund the Support Trust with an account which in his
sole discretion shall seem sufficient to provide to Trustor's
wife sufficient after tax income with which to maintain a
standard of living comparable to that which she was enjoying
at the time of Trustor's death.
Having determined the amount to be aside to the Support
Trust, the Trustee is authorized to fund the Support Trust
in money or in kind or partly in each, and if wholly or
partly in kind, to select and transfer to the trust the
specific asset or assets so selectedd; _provided_ that any
asset transferred in kind to fund the trust shall be valued
for that purpose at its fair market value determined as of
the date of the transfer; and _provided_ _further_ that such
assets shall not consist of Trustor's intellectual properties.
Only assets which qualify for the marital deduction
under Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended ("Code"_
shall be allotted to the trust. Also, to the extent that
other assets qualifying for the marital deduction are
available, the trust shall not be funded with: (a) assets
with respect to which a credit for foreign taxes paid is
allowable under the Code; (b) assets which may be subject to
both income and estate taxes and which may be eligible for a
credit or deduction; or (c) United States Treasury Bonds
eligible for redemption at par in payment of federal estate
tax. Subject to the foregoing, the decisions of the Trustee
as to which assets shall be set aside to fund this trust for
the benefit of Trustor's wife shall be conclusive and binding
on all persons.
Subsequent to Trustor's death and prior to the funding
of the Support Trust, the Trustee shall make monthly
distributions to Trustor's wife in the amount of $10,000.00
adjusted for the cost of living change as above provided.
Trustee shall distribute all net income of the Support Trust,
which shall include all income retroactive to the date of
Trustor's death attributable to the assets used to fund the
Support Trust and the monthly distribution referred to above,
to or for the benefit of Trustor's wife at least annuallly.
The Trustee shall make additional distributions from
principal if required to meet the previously determined
monthly level of support. In making such distributions, the
Trustee shall treat distributions made to Trustor's wife,
following Trustor's death and prior to funding the Support
Trust, as advances against distributions of income from the
Support Trust and income earned by assets following Trustor's
death by prior to their transfer to the Support Trust. In
addition the Trustee shall be authorized to make
distributions from principal as they in their sole discretion
shall deem necessary or advisable for the support,
maintenance and comfort of Trustor's wife at the same
standard to which she had become accustomed at the time of
Trustor's death. No income or principal of the Support Trust
shall be distributed to anyone other than Trustor's wife
during her lifetime.
During Trustor's wife's lifetime, she shall have the
power to reasonably require the Trustee to make all or part
of the principal of the Support Trust productive or to
convert promptly any unproductive property into productive
property. This power shall be exercised by Trustor's wife in
a written instrument delivered to the Trustee.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Trustor's wife shall have no
right to dictate specific investments for the Trust Estate.
Trustor's wife shall not assign, transfer or convey,
anticipate, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise encumber her
interest hereunder, and neither the principal of this Support
Trust nor any income thereof shall be liable for any debt of
Trustor's wife or be subject to any bankruptcy proceedings
or claim of creditors, or be subject to any judgment rendered
against her or other process of any court in aid of execution
of any judgments so rendered; and all of the income and
principal of such trust shall be transferable, payable and
delivereable only to her as above provided.
The Suport Trust shall be subject to all authorizations
and directions applicable to this Trust Agreement, as herein
provided or hereafter amended, except that no provision,
authorization or direction which would prevent the Support
Trust from qualifying for the marital deduction under the
Code shall apply to the Support Trust.
On the death of Trustor's wife, the Trustee shall
distribute any remaining balance of the Support Trust,
including principal and accrued or undistributed income, to
such one or more persons and entities, including the
Trustor's wife's own estate and on such terms and conditions,
either outright or in trust, and in such proportion as
Trustor's wife shall appoint by Will or codicil specifically
referring to and exercising this power of appointment. This
power of appointment shall be exercisable by Trustor's wife
alone in all events. Any portation of the Support Trust not
effectively appointed by the Trustor's wife under this
Paragraph E shall be distributed in accordance with Paragraph
G of this ARTICLE SIX.
It is the Trustor's intention to have the Support Trust
qualify for the marital deduction under the Internal Revenue
Code Section 2056 and the regulations pertaining to that
section or any corresponding substitute provisions applicable
to the Trust Estate. In no event shall the Trustee take any
action or have any power that will impair the marital
deduction, and all provisions regarding the Support Trust
shall be interpreted to conform to this primary objective.
F. _Taxes, Expenses and Debts of My Estate._ The Trustee
is authorized and directed to pay out of the Trust Estate
Trustor's debts, the estate and inheritance taxes, including
interest and penalties, arising because of his death,
Trustor's last illness and funeral expenses, attorneys' fees,
and other reasonable and necessary costs incurred in
administering Trustor's probate estate as and to the extent
provided in his Last Will. Any such paymensts shall be paid
out of the residue of the Trust after funding the
distributions provided for in Paragraphs A, B, C, D, and E
above. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no such payments shall
be made from funds received by the Trustee from qualified
employess benefit plans, or from payment of insurance
policies on the Trustor's life, ans such funds shall not be
used to satisfy any other obligations of the decedent's
estate; provided, however, that to the extent there are no
other assets available for such purposes, or the to the
extent the Trust includes insurance in excess of the amount
of the insurance exemption available under the California
Revenue and Taxation Code, insurance proceeds may be used for
such purposes. Nothing contained in this paragraph F shall
accelerate any obligation or be construed as a direction to
pay any obligation other than as the same becomes due.
Notwithstanding anything contained in this paragraph F
to the contrary, the Trustee shall have no right to pay any
costs of administering Trustor's probate estate without the
prior written approval of an independant firm of certified
public accountants as to the reasonableness and necessity of
such costs.
G. _Residue._ All principal and accumulated income
remaining after the distribution provided for in paragraphs
A, B, C, D, E, and F, above including any lapsed gifts,
shall, as soon as is convenient, be distributed to the CHURCH
OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY a nonprofit religious corporation,
of Los Angeles, California; provided that the CHURCH OF
SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY is then an organization described in
Section 501(c)(3) of the Code.
If at the time of Trustor's death the status of the
CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY as an organization described
in Section 501(c)(3) of the Code is under challenge or
question by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue in any
administrative or judicial proceeding, then the Trustee shall
withhold the remaining Trust Estate from distribution until
either the status of the CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY as
an organization described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Code
has been confirmed in an administrative or judicial
proceeding, or the CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY has
exhausted all administrative and judicial remedies in pursuit
of confirming its status as an organization described in
Section 501(c)(3) of the Code. If the status of the CHURCH
OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY as an organization described in
Section 501(c)(3) of the Code is confirmed, then the Trustee
shall distribute the entire remaining Trust Estate to the
CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY. If the CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL
TECHNOLOGY has exhausted all administrative and judicial
remedies available to it and its status as an organization
described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Code is not confirmed,
or is denied, then the Trustee shall distribute the entire
remaining Trust Estate to or among such other organization
or organizations, whether domestic or foreign, which are
organized exclusively for the purposes of the religion of
Scientology as founded and further developed by Trustor and
which is an organization or are organizations described in
Section 501(c)(3) of the Code, as the Trustee may in his sole
discretion determine.
During any period in which the Trust Estate is withheld
from distribution pending the outcome of proceedings
respecting the status of the CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY
as an organization described in Section 501(c)(3) of the
Code, the Trustee shall, not less frequently than annually,
distribute all of the Trust's income to such organization,
or among such organizations, as are organized exclusively for
the purposes of the religion of Scientology as founded and
further developed by Trustor and which is an organization or
are organizations described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Code
as the Trustee may in his sole discretion determine.


IV. TRUSTEE'S POWERS
Paragraph "U" from the two documents is dissimilar enough to include in
this comparison. Also, AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B contains a paragraph "Z"
that is not in AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

A. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

TRUSTEE'S POWERS
...
U. _Power to Make Tax Elections._ To take any action
and to make any election, in the Trustee's dicretion, in
order to minimize the tax liabilities of these trusts and
their beneficiaries. The Trustee shall allocate the benefits
from such action or election among the various rights of any
beneficiaries, or between the income and principal accounts,
to compensate for the consequences of any tax election,
investment or administrative decision that the Trustee
believes has had the effect of directly or indirectly
preferring one beneficiary or group of beneficiaries over
others, except that this paragraph shall not be applied in
such a fashion as would preclude Trustor's wife from
receiving all net income of the Support Trust.

B. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B:

TRUSTEE'S POWERS
...
U. _Power to Make Tax Elections._ To take any action
and to make any election, in the Trustee's discretion, in
order to minimize the tax liabilities of these trusts and
their beneficiaries. The Trustee shall allocate the benefits
from such action or election among the various beneficiaries.
The Trustee shall make adjustments in the rights of any
beneficiaries, or between the income and principal accounts,
to compensate for the consequences of any tax election,
investment or administrative decision that the Trustee
believes has had the effect of directly or indirectly
preferring one beneficiary or group of beneficiaries over
others, except that this paragraph shall not be applied in
such a fashion as would preclude Trustor's wife from
receiving all net income of the Support Trust.
...
Z. _Power to Acquire Assets._ It is Trustor's intention
that the beneficiary, or beneficiaries, of the residue of the
Trust Estate, as described in Paragraph G of Article SIX, own
all of Trustor's copyrights, including but not limted to, and
[sic: any(?)] contingent renewal rights that may be
exercisable by the Trustor's heirs. Therefore, the Trustee
shall have shall have the power to acquire Trustor's
copyright or any contingent renewal rights therefor.


V. INSURANCE, DISINHERITANCE, TAX RETURNS
These similar paragraphs from the two documents are dissimilar in
several ways:

A. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

INSURANCE, DISINHERITANCE, TAX RETURNS
...
C. _Prohibition of Contest._ Should any Trust
beneficiary, no matter how remote or contingent such
beneficiary's interest appears, or any legal heir of the
Trustor or any person claiming under any of them, contest the
provisions of this Trust or attack or seek to impair the
provisions of this Trust or attack or seek to impair or
invalidate any of the Trust's provisions, or conspire with
or voluntarily assist anyone attempting to do any of those
things, then in such event the right of that person to take
any interest given to him by this Trust shall be determined
as it would have been determined has such person predeceased
the execution of this instrument without surviving issue.

B. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B:

INSURANCE, DISINHERITANCE, TAX RETURNS
...
C. _Prohibition of Contest._ Should any Trust
beneficiary, no matter how remote or contingent such
beneficiary's interest appeasr, or any legal heir of the
Trustor or any person claiming under any of them, contest the
provisions of this Trust or attack or seek to impair or
invalidate any of the Trust's provisions, or conspire with
or voluntarily assist anyone attempting to do any of these
things, then in such event the right of that person to take
any interest given to him by this Trust shall be determined
as it would have been determined had such person predeceased
the execution of this instrument without surviving issue.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this
paragrapg C shall not be deemed to apply to Trustor's wife
in connection with the specific distributions to Trustor's
wife under Paragraph A of ARTICLE SIX [DISPOSITIVE PROVISIONS
UPON TRUSTOR'S DEATH] and the benefits payable to Trustor's
wife during her lifetime under Paragraph E of ARTICLE SIX.


VI. TRUSTEE PROVISIONS
This contains a significant difference in compensation for the Trustee
of $49,900.00. Also, AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A makes no mention of the
CHURCH OF SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY (CST).

A. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-A:

TRUSTEE PROVISIONS
...
E. _Trustees' Fees._ During the lifetime of Trustor
the Trustee, shall not receive any fees. Upon death of
Trustor and continuing until the occurrence of the
distributions, required by this Agreement, the Trustee shall
be entitled to an annual fee not exceeding the sum of $100.00.

B. FROM AUTHOR'S FAMILY TRUST-B:

TRUSTEE PROVISIONS
...
E. _Trustor's Fees._ During the lifetime of Trustor,
the Trustee shall not receive any fees. Upon death of Trustor
and continuing until the occurrence of the distributions,
