That is how Scientology works.
"The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is no authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, or course, ruin him utterly"
- L. Ron Hubbard, The Scientologist, a Manual on the Dissemination of Material, 1955
