DOCUMENT TITLE: Affidavit of Executor
SUBJECT: Transfer of all right, title and interest in all the assets of L. Ron Hubbard's estate, including 7,730 copyrighted works, from the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard to Norman F. Starkey, Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B
PARTIES: Norman F. Starkey, Executor of the Estate of L. Ron Hubbard and Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B (doing business at the time as "L. Ron Hubbard Library"); Ryland G. Hawkins, Notary Public; Meade Emory and Sherman Lenske, architects of the probate and Trusts, and of the Affidavit itself; Sherman Lenske as counsel to Starkey during probate of the Will; Sherman Lenske, Stephen Lenske, and Lawrence E. Heller, Special Directors of CST at the time of the Affidavit, as "consultants" to Starkey (Trustee of both Author's Family Trust-A and Author's Family Trust-B), and as "Trust Protectors"


BACKGROUND AND NOTES

A crucial document, this 4 January 1989 Affidavit confirms that as of the day before, 3 January 1989, Norman F. Starkey as Trustee of Author's Family Trust-B, has come into sole ownership of all right, title and interest of the assets of L. Ron Hubbard's estate, including all right, title and interest "in and to all of the copyrightable works of L. Ron Hubbard," making Norman F. Starkey the sole successor to "all right, title and interest of L. Ron Hubbard...and his estate."

Notably, the assets of the estate also include all right, title and interest that had been retained for the estate in the trademarks "Assignment" of 10 May 1982. See our report on the trademarks for the full story.

In effect, Starkey has formally replaced L. Ron Hubbard. Starkey has even started operating, the day before, under the fictitious (and fraudulent) business name of "L. Ron Hubbard Library."

Of course, as always with this incredibly intricate and conspiratorial fraud created by Meade Emory, it's what you don't see that matters most. And what is not apparent at all is that Starkey is completely under the control of the three Special Directors at CST--Sherman Lenske, Stephen Lenske, and Lawrence Heller--in their roles both as consultants, and as "Trust Protectors," all as set up by Meade Emory in the trust instrument for "Author's Family Trust-B."

Starkey, as is reflected in this Affidavit, is now in position to later transfer all the "corpus and income" of Author's Family Trust-B to CST once it is granted its tax exemption (already guaranteed by Meade and the boys at Treasury). And that is exactly what occurs by secret order of IRS in the 1 October 1993 Closing Agreement, which is when CST effectively replaces L. Ron Hubbard, also operating under the fictitious (and fraudulent) business name of "L. Ron Hubbard Library."

Here is the Affidavit:
