What do Susan Estrich and Tom Cruise have in common?

tcru.jpgAnswer: They’ve both employed uber-lawyer Bert Fields to write letters. Defamer reports receiving a missive from Fields demanding that he correct his misleading suggestion– really just a link to this– that Tom Cruise struggled with his faith before completely accepting the tenets of Scientology.
