This is a declaration filed by Barry Van Sickle, the attorney for blownforgood - Marc Headley - who filed his labor case against the Church of Scientology. This motion / declaration was filed in Mr. Van Sickle's divorce case in January 2009. I thought Barry Van Sickle was a successful attorney. This sounds like he doesn't have enough money to even get his suits out of the dry cleaners. Blownforgood, who has enough money to own two of the fastest jet skis made, needs to pay his attorney!

DECLARATION
OF
BARRY
VAN
SICKLE
I
make
this
declaration
from
personal
knowledge.
I
was
admittedto
practice
law
in
Minnesota
in
1978
4
and
California in
1981.
I
have
general
earned
a
decent
but
5
modest
income,
and have
paid
over
$200,000
in
child
and
6
overthe
years,
which
in
fact
is
a
reason
I
do
not
7
have
equity
in
my
home, a
retirement
account,
a
account,
8
or
any
other
asset
or
reserve to
cover
my
bills
when
business
9
goes bad
as
my
business
has
in
latter
200B.
The
months
of
10
-
December
2008
were
the
worst
six
months,
f
11
I
have
in
30
yearsofto
law.
It
12
is
but
true that
I
have
been
close
to
13
destitute
for
several
months.
The
suits
stay
at
the dry
cleaners
14
until
lcan
collect
a
small
check
for
covering
an
appearance,
15
and
that
is
an
of
everyday
life
at
the
present.

I
have no
assets,
liabilities
We
are
four
17
months
behind
in
our
mortgage,
received
a
notice
of
foreclosure
18
yesterday,
owe much
more
than our
house
is
worth,
are
behind
in
19
car
paymentsandhave
no
credit.
In thepast
few
months
we
have
20
of
electricity,
service,
cable
21
service
and
email
service.
Health
insurance
has been
22
and
cannot
bedue
to
condition
problems.
23
My
business
bank
account
was
closed
for
24
overdrawn.
The
creditor calls
come
every
seven
a week,
25
start
at
8
am.
In
November,
I
closed
my
officein
Los
26
Angeles
the
landlord
was a
client
and
gave
me
a
good
27
deal.
I
could
not
afford
the
rent
or
the
cost
of
travel
to
28
Southern
California.

I
am
not
exaggerating-I
do
not
have
the
money
to
pay
2
arrearages
at
the
moment.

4 '
-I
The
rootof
the
problem
is
collections,
not
work.
I4
have
been
extremely
busy.
I
worked
most
of
July,
August,
5
September and
October
in
a
difficult
trademark case
pending
in
6
Federal
Court
in
Los
Angeles.
I
was
promised
payment
on
7
numerous
occasions,
but
it
never
came. I
thought
the
client
was
8
good
for
it-I
was
wrong.
Eventually,
in
December
the
client
9
decided
to
surrender
his
trademark
claims,
drop
out
of
the
10
litigation
ar~d
move
on
to other
business.
Bffilkruptcy
was
11
threatened.
At
the
time,
the
client
owed
me
over
$35,000,
which
12
would have
allowed
me
to
pay
all
of
my
bills
and!
or
completely
13
payoff
this
debt,
which
haunts
me
as an
unpleasant
ghost
from
14
an
ancient
marriage
and
mistake
I
w~~t
totally
behind
me.
Our
15
deal
called
for
the
client
to
pay
me
at least
$10,000
per
month
16
on
a
litigation
budget.
The
payments
did not
come,
but
I
stayed
17
·on
the
case
for several
reasons
and
had
a
reasonable expectation
18
of
payment_
In
hindsight,
I
should
have
bailed
earlier
but
I
19
was
attorney
of record
in
a
Federal
trademark
case,

just

a
client
in
federal
court, the
client
was
a
21
business
associate
of several
other
clients
who
asked
me
to stay
22
on
and vouched
fOl.-
the
client's
credit
worthiness.
The
client
23
had
been
in
thebusinessfor
over
seven
years,
needed
to
pay
me
24
and
stay
active
in
the
case
to
stay
in

and

As
the
motions
in
Federal
court
were
being
drafted
and
2
taking
almost
all
oE
my
time
and
energy
during
last
summer
and
3
fall,
meetings
were
being
held
with
Japaneselawyers
and
Korean
1
investors.
Each
week
it
appeared
that
much
money
would be
5
available
"next
week"
,
and
I
would
not
only
get
paidfor
past
6
work,
but
there
would
be
$10.000
per
month
to
budget
for
future
7
work.
The
case
was
far
from
over
when
the
white
flag
went
up.

When
this
Eell
through
it
snowballed.
Small
bills
9
accumulated
for
months
into
big
bills.
Life
was
reduced
to
10
working
just
to
put
food
on
the
table
andkeep
the
lights
on.

I
tried
to
collect
the
$35,000
bill,
and
thought
that
12
some
money
would
come
in
-eventually.
A
lady
from
child
services
13
called
(Susan
Sumugian(sp?)-I
am
uncertain
of
spelling
and bave
14
no
documents
with ber
name
for
guidance.)
called
several
times
15
asking
for
a
status
report
and
money.
I
honestly
answered
her
16
questions.
During
this
time,
I
had
not
given
up
and
was
hoping
17
that
something
would
break
and
I
would
be
able to
come
to
court
18
with
a
major
payment.
The
client
was
saying
that
he would
pay
19.
the
bill
and
hoped
to
get
back
in
the
case
periodically
until
20
mid-December.
It
seemed
somewhat
probable
that
he
would pay
at
21
least
$10
-
$lSK,
and
to
some
extent
I
was
waiting
to
get
that
22
or
some
money
in
before
coming
into
court
and
making
a
motion
to
23
modify
the
order.
Also,
I
was
busy
trying
to
make
money
and
had
24
little
time
or
money
for
travel to
Southern
California.

8)
I
live
in
Roseville
which
is
over
400
miles
from
this
26
courthouse.
Unless
I
sleep
in
the
car,
which
I
have
done
in
the
27
past several
months,
it
takes
two
tanks
of gas
and one
night
in
28
a
hotel
for
me
to
make
this
motion.
For
most
of
the
past
month,
