JZ Knight, who runs Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, is suing a former student for releasing videos that make her look bad. Unfortunately, some additional interesting stuff that goes on at the “school” isn’t going to be allowed under questioning.
We covered the story of the videos here along with subsequent political fallout.
An attorney for a former student of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment is barred from asking the school’s leader, JZ Knight, about alleged practices such as encouraging students to drink a liquid containing lye that, according to the former student’s affidavit, is supposed to “accelerate our individual enlightenment.”
Thurston County Superior Court Judge Gary Tabor ruled Friday in anticipation of Knight’s 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 Knight’s deposition, Coverdale’s attorney, Shawn Newman, can ask Knight only questions that are directly relevant to the lawsuit. The suit seeks damages in response to Coverdale’s release of videos showing Knight making derogatory comments about Mexicans, Catholics and others last year.
