It is telling that the WTBTS leaders insists on institutional unity among its R&F members, but they cannot achieve it amongst themselves and the most important departments which are supposedly under their direct control right there in Brooklyn!
Well, I would say that they simply don't need to achieve institutional unity. Most JWs will never even know this trial or any of the others ever even occurred. If they hear of it, they'll assume it's just apostates 'framing trouble by decree'. Thus, Legal can do whatever they want, up to and including lying in court. If anyone finds out, they can always arrange a judicial committee where a janitor, a clerk, and a pool cleaner will decide your eternal fate. Who'd have thought that, huh?
