OUT OF SESSION, 1. when the preclear controls the session he is out of session. Therefore, it is necessary for the preclear not to stop or alter the course of action of an auditor. The moment that a preclear can satisfactorily, to himself, stop the auditor, that preclear is out of session and the probability of doing him much good while he is out of session is very remote. (HCOB 4 Oct 56) 2 . there are various degrees of being out of session. The most severe of these is the person who refuses auditing. The next degree is sitting in the chair but refusing to answer questions. The next degree is sitting in the chair and being uncooperative or even choppy. (HCOB 17 Nov 60) 3 . the definition of “in session” is (a) interested in own case, (b) willing to talk to the auditor. When either of these are violated the pc is “out of session” and is receiving no benefit from processing. (HCOB 17 Nov 60)
