Class action lawsuit against California Narconons
« on: April 02, 2015, 22:03 »
The lawsuits keep coming....

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST SCIENTOLOGY DRUG REHABS IN CALIFORNIA - The Underground Bunker
Tony Ortega on Scientology

Quote
Catapulting from the success of Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton, who spent the past year filing 27 lawsuits against Scientology’s drug rehab network Narconon, three attorneys who have watched Hamilton closely have filed a new class-action lawsuit against two Narconon corporations in California with two initial plaintiffs.

Indiana attorney David Miller, California attorney Michael Ram, and Seattle attorney Beth Terrell filed their suit in federal court in Northern California, and have asked for both national and regional classes to be certified as their clients sue for breach of contract, negligent representation, false advertising, and unfair competition.

"Saved by narCONon 11 years ago" comment just showed up calling the article, and commenters, "misguided". The Ronbots must be getting thin on the ground if that's all they've got.

Is that a bad thing?

And the conversation appears to be heating up. The Ronbot doesn't appear to be interested in facts.

That is a good thing, of course!

WOW: California judge orders trial to determine if Scientology drugged incoming rehab patients - The Underground Bunker
Tony Ortega

Quote
On April 1, we told you about a class-action lawsuit that had been filed against several of Scientology’s drug rehab companies in California. A judge has now ruled against Scientology in the lawsuit’s preliminary matters and has called for a trial that should put explosive evidence in a courtroom — that Scientology’s Narconon centers get new patients high on whatever they’re addicted to before they can be admitted.

Two plaintiffs were named in the lawsuit; their attorneys planned for there to be many more former Narconon patients suing the Scientology rehab system. The plaintiffs, Nathan Burgoon of California and Caleb Landers of Pennsylvania, each alleged what we’ve seen in so many other lawsuits against the Scientology rehab centers: That they promise individualized drug counseling delivered by medical professionals with astounding success rates, and don’t mention their connection to the Church of Scientology. But after patients have paid around $30,000 up front, they then learn that the Narconon program contains no drug counseling at all, but instead delivers the same kind of introductory exercises that a new member gets at a Scientology church.

Little adds that he expects that another decision to go to trial may be coming soon in another case filed by his firm, Saeed and Little of Indianapolis. That case involves a Michigan woman named Candice Tyler who alleges horrific mistreatment at one of Per Wickstrom’s facilities, Narconon Freedom Center in Albion, Michigan.

Is Per Wickstrom running Narconon Freedom Center now too?

He does own the building but I dont think he is running the center.  I believe the great John Walser is in charge now. 
ET went home.

Oh, good.  Thanks.  That means I don't have to go through a bunch of Narconon Freedom Center documents and reclassify them as Per Wickstrom places.
