        This is the normal response I get when I ask even long time TSA
members about their knowledge of the litigation of Krishnaji trusts and it
is one of the very well kept secrets, at least outside of Ojai. During the
litigation, I believe the Ojai newspapers provided full coverage so Ojai
residents in Krotona at that time should have known all about the litigation.

It took me almost two decades to find out the details, that too by accident. 

It was the inaccuracies and the questionable comments and wrong conclusions
in Sloss's book that triggered the outflow of the details of the litigation
and Sloss should be thanked for opening up the issue.

It was also by a sheer coincindence that I noticed that one of the K
Trustees involved in the litigation was sitting on the TSA Board of
Directors and also on the Theosophical Investment Trust with the full
support and backing of the TSA Board of Directors, and I could not believe
my eyes when I saw this.

More of the interesting details of the litigation later, as some on theos-l
may be interested.
