Scientologist Bryan Zwan and the Scandals at Digital Lighwave

Bryan Zwan was the founder of Digial Lightwave, a Clearwater, Florida company that was involved in several scandals resulting in lawsuits and SEC action. Details can be found at

Zwan's problems stemmed directly from his involvement in the Church of Scientology, a notoriously abusive cult group. At the height of Zwan's problems he was employing Denise Miscavige Licciardi in a management capacity.

David is the brother of Denise Miscavige Licciardi. The Zwans are being presented with the IAS (International Association of Scientologists) Silver Meritorious Award, given to members who have contributed more than $750,000 to the cult's war chest.

In their later years, the Zwans left Scientology and reportedly regretted their involvement with the group. Bryan Zwan died in 2015.
