    Attorney Luke Lirot speaks on Kyle Brennan appeal live on air Thu 2/16/2012 Blogtalk

    God Discussion has announced that Attorney Luke Lirot will be speaking on its Thursday evening blogtalk radio show on the Kyle Brennan wrongful death suit for which he has just filed an appeal.

    From the show page:

    Bottom of the 2nd Hour – Attorney Luke Lirot, The Estate of Kyle Thomas Brennan v. The Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization.

    February 16 will mark the 5th anniversary of Kyle Thomas Brennan’s death. Luke Lirot is the attorney for Victoria Britton, Kyle’s mother and executor of his estate.

    Kyle was a 20-year-old Catholic college student from Charlottesville, VA (see memorial site). He was visiting his Scientologist father Tom Brennan in Clerwater, FL, when he died.

    Lirot has just filed an appeal in the Estate’s wrongful-death suit, which names as defendants Tom Brennan, his Scientology "auditor" Denise Gentile (the twin sister of Scientology leader David Miscavige), her husband Jerry Gentile and Flag Service Organization, which runs the Church’s operation in Clearwater.

    Kyle was taking Lexapro for depression and social anxiety and was an adamant critic of his father’s Scientology beliefs. The wrongful death suit centers on Scientology’s views on psychiatry and medication and alleges that the day before his death Tom took Kyle’s Lexapro and locked it in his vehicle.

    Kyle was shot in the head with a bullet from Tom’s Magnum 357. There are some disturbing factual allegations surrounding this case that we will discuss on the show.

    Luke Lirot received his law degree from the University of San Francisco and practices in Clearwater. He is a past president of the First Amendment Lawyers Association. He has gained prominence over many years for his success in First Amendment cases and particularly for his victorious defense of adult entertainment rights in /Voyeur Dorm v. City of Tampa, FL.

    The show airs live on BlogTalkRadio (you can hear it via your computer) at 6 PM Pacific / 9 PM Eastern. We cover news for the first 10-15 minutes and then join the guests. Calls are welcome and encouraged and as always, our web-based chatroom will be open during the live show and we'll follow your questions/comments as best we can.

    If you miss the show, you can listen to an MP3 download via Blog Talk Radio or iTunes (see the Blog Talk Radio widget on the bottom of this and every page on GodDiscussion.com). The link for the February 16 show is here.
    The show begins at 6:00 pm Pacific/9:00 pm Eastern. Luke is scheduled to speak at 7:30 pm Pacific/10:30 pm Eastern. Details for call-in numbers etc. at the links above. A collection of documents relating to the case can be found here.

    Yes. Luke Lirot also, with Ken Dandar, represented the Lisa McPherson estate in the latter part of the McPherson civil litigation. He also represented Shawn Lonsdale pro bono. Those are just two of the more prominent roles he's played in Scientology litigation.

    He's also the recipient of the Tom Selleck Magnum Award for splendid mustache.
