I am going to make this an ongoing thread because of all the lawsuits against the various Narconon facilities and in some cases, against Narconon International and Association For Better Living and Education, Inc. This will help victims be able to know where to find information on how to sue Narconon.

Here are some cases against Narconons which I have recently posted docs on over at my scribd. Some are ongoing, some recently closed with settlements or judgements.

LANDMEIER vs. NARCONON OF OKLA.INC, Narconon International 2010
This is an ongoing lawsuit by Landmeier against Narconon Arrowhead in Pittsburg County State court, Oklahoma and Arrowhead's parent organization, Narconon International. Defendent's request for records protective order was stricken. The case is awaiting scheduling.

Compton vs Narconon Vista Bay, Narconon International and Association For Better Living and Education

David Compton is suing Narconon Vista Bay, Narconon International and Association For Better Living for Fraud and Breach of Contract. Involved in this is August West Family Services of Capitola CA, a supposedly licensed chemical detox facility front group that exisits solely for Narconon Northern California and it's Vista Bay facility, along with Allen Sosin, MD, the medical director of both facilities. This case is ongoing and I will post more docs as they come and during their upcoming trial.

Narconon Sued Again. 2010 Fisher v Narconon Southern California, et al

Let this case be a warning to others seeking substance abuse and or alcohol treatment from Narconon, which provides no one-to-one counseling, medical care, group processing therapy or standard drug education. Nor are they licensed or certified by CARF.

Here we have Fisher v Narconon Southern California, et al - The issues of a false high success rate,
promises of medically supervised detoxification for which Narconon is not licensed, lies, fraud and breach of contract. Key words. Narconon, Narconon Southern California, fraud in the inducement, deceptive trade practices, breach of contract, negligence, violation of California business and health codes. Staff Bon Markham, Gary Downs, June Rosenberry and others. This case was quickly settled.

Narconon Lawsuit: Jacobs & Jacobs vs Narconon Southern California, et al. Complaint 2009
Narconon of Southern California was sued here by father and son Jacobs in Orange County Court in Aug 2009 for Breach of Contract, Unjust Enrichment, Fraud - Intentional Concealment, Fraud - Negligent Misrepresentation, Conversion and Unfair Competition - in violation of California Business and Professional codes. The issues of a false high success rate, promises of medically supervised detoxification for which Narconon is not licensed. Patient taken off site to a non Narconon detox facility without knowledge of payee, wherein no licensed physician was in attendance and patient taken off his anti-depressant medication against his will. At Narconon, he was taught and made to do Scientology practices against his wishes and without payee knowledge, despite patient and payee being practicing Jews. Patient suffered from being taken off his medication. Narconon settled this case, as they do all that sue them.

I encourage all victims to find an attorney and sue for their suffering and the return of their monies paid.

Narconon Sued: Weber vs Narconon Southern California 2009
Michael Weber, as Conservator for Daniel Weber, successfully sued Narconon Southern California in a  case held in SMALL CLAIMS >$5,000<=$7,500 in Laguna Hills, Orange County California in 2009, I cannot help but be reminded of the Raul Lopez court case fined by his mother as Conservator against The Church of Scientology because staff members had taken Raul's Trust monies even though he has severe deficits due to a previous traumatic brain injury.  I am glad that Narconon was not able to get more than $7,500 from the Conservatee in this Weber suit and I am glad they got their money back with the aid of the court.

Narconon Sued: Kerrie Anne Sullivan vs Narconon Southern California et al
2008-2009 Docket Small Claims Court Laguna Hills, Orange County.
In 2008, Ms Sullivan sued Narconon Southern California et al in Orange County Court in Laguna Beach. She sued for between $5,000 and $7500. Mr. Ryan James was named as an interested party and issued a warrant and arrested midway through the case, entered in as a co-defendent. He was released on $6,000 bail. I am not sure what this is about but Ms. Sullivan received a judgement against both parties for the monies she asked for in her complaint. Most likely she was asking back her deposit taken without her consent or after changingher mind because of the known issues with Narconon. What you see here is the docket of her case against Narconon.

No I don't, on the judge. But the case is just a personal injury case that includes a 3rd party defendent party rental company. Not related to Narconon services

UPDATES:
LANDMEIER vs. NARCONON OF OKLA.INC, Narconon International 2010
This is an ongoing lawsuit by Landmeier against Narconon Arrowhead in Pittsburg County State court, Oklahoma and Arrowhead's parent organization, Narconon International. Defendent's request for records protective order was stricken. The case is awaiting scheduling.

 This case is closed. Not sure what happened. Probably settled. However, I found out some interesting information on the plaintiff and how she probably got involved with Narconon. Plaintiff's mother seems to have a cousin or brother named Meier - either named Beth Bauer Meier or Daniel Meier, and both scientologists.  Presumably the name Meier is a shortened version of Landmeier. In on line search company data, Beth either lived or worked in Canadian OK or before or after moving to Clearwater and later Seattle, WA. Not sure if husband Daniel went with her or if either is an active scientologist. Beth Meier Bauer is an IAS patron. Plaintiff Heather M Landemeier is shown as being related to Beth Marie Meier of Clearwater and Canadian OK, as is plaintiff's mother Valerie. Both LAndmeiers are from IL. I imagine suing Narconon puts family in a disconnection situation or face leaving the cult. Hope it's the latter

UPDATE

I am sad to announce that this was a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit. on Tuesday, March 3, 2009, Kaysie Dianne Werninck died of double pneumonia due to gross negligence on the part of Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma staff, who failed to get her the medical attention she needed and asked for but was prevented from receiving by Narconon until it was too late.

Condolences to Kaysie Dianne Werninck's loved ones. Her obituary can be read here:

Werninck-

Plaintiff Werninck response to Narconon Oklahoma Answer denying responsibility for Wrongful Death and Negligence as stated in Petition Filed by Plaintiffs Werninck on behalf of deceased Narconon "student" Kaysie Werninck.

This was a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit. on Tuesday, March 3, 2009, Kaysie Dianne Werninck died of double pneumonia due to gross negligence on the part of Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma staff, who failed to get her the medical attention she needed and asked for but was prevented from receiving by Narconon until it was too late.  She died at EUFAULA COMMUNITY HOSPITAL Mc Intosh co aka Community Hospital Lakeview, in Eufaula, OK. This case settled in this past spring. I have only a couple of 1st pages of filings posted at scribd, as that was all that was available from another county where the lawsuit began. Kaysie Werninck's obituary can be read here:
http://staugustine.com/stories/030609/obits_030609_053.shtml

This case was settled recently. It was originally filed in OKLA County OK, which is where I obtained available filing pages. I believe NN is suing the hospital now. See below:

More info on Justin Smith death, lawsuit.

Another accident tied to Narconon Watsonville, now also known also as
Narconon Vista Bay at the same location on Gaffey Road, this time
involving a dual-fatality (along with 2 seriously injured passengers)
from later in 2000.

(Not reported here is a related and extremely suspicious death of a relative
of one of the victims. He worked for a Scientology entity and was planning
to testify against Narconon, but apparently died days before scheduling a deposition).

Complaint for Damages "Wrongful Death" of Justin Smith (Plaintiff's son)

This case concerns the death of Justin Smith, 22 years old,
following a July 13, 2000 collision when he drove his 1966 Mustang
to excessive speed and it went off the road (a few hundred yards
from the turnoff to Narcononís Watsonville facility) and hit a tree.

Justin was a client at the Narconon facility in Watsonville,
and the allegation is that Narconon staffer Scott Friend wrongly
provided Justin the keys to his vehicle while he was involved
in treatment (which enabled the accident to occur). It is not
believed that drugs or alcohol were a factor in this accident,
per the initial CHP repor.

There were also 3 other persons in that vehicle, and of them
a fellow client (Chad Skoglie, age 27) also died, and two
Narconon staffers (Eric Petersen, age 31, and John Vereeke, age 33)
were seriously injured.
Chad Skoglie was the son of xxxxxxxx xxxxxxx Lxxxx Sxxxxxx,
and a later complaint (which was consolidated into this case)
was filed on behalf of minor children "(N)" and "(McK)"
(regarding the loss of their relation) who resided
with their grandmother in Idaho.

Justin had obtained his vehicle following phone calls made to
his mother, who had planned to remove his vehicle from a
residential garage. Justin feared that his black 1966 Mustang,
a prized possession, would get "destroyed" from "sitting in the
street" near a 7-11 convenience store. Justin was in treatment
for methamphetamine use, following unspecified legal action for
possession (possibly of methamphetamine or paraphernalia),
and was described by Narconon as "typical for admission (to their
program)": "smart," "rebellious," "in denial, and in "legal trouble."

The Plaintiff's claim was that providing car keys to an addict
in treatment, was a violation of not only treatment rules but
could also be seen as negligence. Narconon's attorney,
Steven D. Werth of Low, Ball & Lynch of San Francisco,
countered that the decedent was "negligent himself." Narconon's
defense largely rested on a combination of "cross-complaint" legal
filings described by the Plaintiff's attorney as being "without any
legal or factual theory or justification" and "solely for the
purpose of and intention to intimidate, coerce an/or deter Smith's
pursuit of her original claim," and depositions of Narconon staff,
(some of whom were located by private investigators after being
transferred to a women's shelter in New Mexico, and others who
repeated the assertion that decedent Smith had exhibited speed as
he left the facility just prior to the accident).

Narconon claimed that the "release of liability" signed by Justin
when he entered his treatment program on May 8, 2000, included
language which prevented "any legal action or litigation against
Narconon Inc., its Board of Directors, members, employees, or
L. Ron Hubbard arising for any reason out of my participation in
the Narconon program."

Staff at Narconon Watsonville in 2000 were listed as:
Tyson Bates, Joey Burnham, John Burns, Scott Friend, Angie Manson,
Daniel Manson, Laurie Miller, Andy Troy Moore, Lisa Moore,
Eric Petersen, Tatsuya Sakamoto, xxxxx xxxxxx, William Starr,
P.J. Treat, and John Vereeke. Others named (possibly clients)
were: Ed Hocking, Frank Montara, Mr. Papastefanou, and
Richard Prescott. A local resident who witnessed the accident
was "Hagger."

Eric Petersen, injured in accident, (was Narconon employee)
Last at: Redondo Technologies, Redondo Beach CA 90277

Smith's mother subsequently established a drug-abuse
information program, seen at welcome to the Jason Foundation,
which offers scholarships to students in drug counseling
curricula, and which provides information on state legislation
requiring training of drug counselors.

(Excerpt from FREEDOM November-December 2005)

It was Thursday July 13, 2000, but I remember it like it
was yesterday. I was standing in my living room at 11:30 PM
listening to two police officers tell me my twenty-two year
old son had died in a car accident earlier that evening.
My first words were, "It can't be Justin; he's in a safe place".
It was Justin. In the weeks and months that followed,
I learned that he had not been in a safe place. I learned that:

In the drug addiction field there were few regulations;
Marketing claims publicized by drug rehabilitation clinics could be unsubstantiated;
Residential drug rehabilitation facilities could obtain state licensure by writing their own program;
Patient recruiting and interventions could be sold on a commission basis;
Drug addiction counselors were not required to have any formal education or training;
Patient recruiting and interventions could be sold on a commission basis;
Drug addiction counselors were not required to have any formal education or training;
There were no regulations regarding length of time a counselor needed to be sober before working with clients;
Sexual relationships between staff members and/or clients could go undisciplined;
Alcohol and other drugs could be kept and consumed by staff on residential rehabilitation premises;
Traffic accidents involving drunken staff and clients could go unreported to proper authorities;
Sexual harassment and verbal abuse of staff and clients could occur without consequence;
Even rumors of rape and sexual perversity warranted no investigation.

I was appalled and sickened at what I heard from previous clients, staff
and family members.I asked myself how I, or other parents, could have known what was going
on behind closed doors and the answer is that we could not.

The Justin Foundation was founded because everyone in need of
treatment for alcohol or drug addiction should have a SAFE place to go.
Most of us parents do not know much about addictive drugs, so
The Justin Foundationís first task was to create a parent-friendly
web site at The Justin Foundation offering information regarding addictive drugs.

The second goal was to see mandatory education and training for
drug addiction counselors. The newly enacted state regulations are
a start. We are hopeful the newly formed CAADAC/PAC will be able to
influence legislators to strengthen requirements.
The Justin Foundation stands ready to support that effort and has
agreed to serve on the Counselor Certification and Oversight Committee
being formed by the State.

In today's world of addiction recovery, people can be in unsafe situations
now, so it is imperative we get more counselors that are qualified into
the field as quickly as possible. This year The Justin Foundation started
a scholarship fund to assist people who are committed to obtaining
addiction counselor certification obtain a formal education.
To insure professionalism, only CAADAC approved study programs qualify.
Recipients receive $500.00 per semester for tuition and books, which is
renewable as long as the student maintains a B average in six or more units.
We were able to award two scholarships for the 2005-06 academic year.
In 2006-07, we will award as many scholarships as we can fund.
If you can help with this endeavor, very dollar you send will go
directly into the scholarship fund and is 100% tax deductible.

Pavlodar, Kazakhstan: Narconon on trial. *Update: GUILTY*

Head of Scientology's Narconon on Trial, Pavlodar, Kazakhstan, Oct.-Nov. 2009
http://youtu.be/123ysxgmSIw
In Nov. 2008, The Kazakhstan financial police searched the premises of the Scientology front organization Narconon in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan. They seized more than one thousand client files and about 200 packages of medicinal compounds that are prohibited in Kazakhstan. The center charged nearly $2,000 a month for its "treatment" of drug or alcohol addiction but reported its income as voluntary donations.

The center operated without a license and its head, Evgeniya Tarkhanova, was accused of illegal business activity. Tarkhanova's trial began in late October 2009. On November 25, she was found guilty and fined. The defendant's attorney was her mother, Tatiana Tarkhanova.

Pavlodar City, Kazakhstan, is the capital of Pavlodar Province, located on the northern border of Karaganda Province.

Head of Scientologist “Narconon” center sentenced in Pavlodar

Pavlodar. November 25. Kazakhstan Today – The widely-noted trial of the “Narconon” center, which is connected with the religious Scientology organization, ended today in Pavlodar, reports the Kazakhstan Today news agency.

Pavlodar City Court Number 2 issued a guilty verdict against the 25-year-old director of the "Narconon" center and sentenced her to a heavy fine of 7,700 dollars*. The court stated that the convicted defendant has the right to legally appeal the decision within 15 days.

As previously reported, the defendant was charged under Article 190 of the Kazakhstan Criminal Code (illegal business activity). According to the charges, the Narconon rehabilitation and educational center where she worked was engaged in the illegal practice of medicine and provided services to persons suffering from drug or alcohol addiction.

The trial was the result of operations carried out on November 20, 2008 by the Department of Economic Crimes and Corruption. The financial police found that the “Narconon” center had archives containing almost a thousand files labeled “confidential” concerning persons who received services.

In addition, during the search, police seized “accounting documents, 134 packages containing various kinds of medicinal preparations that did not specify the country of origin, a large number of Scientology-oriented books, a program describing the 'Purification' course, a program for the application of medicinal preparations, advertising and promotional materials."

In all, police seized more than 60 boxes of documents, religious literature, and medicinal preparations not registered in Kazakhstan. The financial police reported that "Narconon" patients were misled and that the money received by the organization's leadership was labeled as voluntary donations.

"The forensic chemical analyses of the substances seized during searches concluded that all the substances under investigation, with few exceptions, were medicinal preparations (vitamins, dietary supplements, food products) that are not registered in the state registry of medicines of the Republic of Kazakhstan and that their use in the territory of Kazakhstan is prohibited. The therapeutic doses of active substances in certain vitamins and dietary supplements greatly exceeded the permissible limits," said the financial police.

Court Orders Scientology “Narconon” Building in Pavlodar Returned to City Government

February 4, 2010 5:45 P.M.

In Pavlodar, a court decision has ordered that the Scientology “Narconon” building be returned to the city government, reports the Kazakhstan Today agency, based on information published in the regional socio-political weekly Nasha Zhizn [“Our Life"].

According to Nasha Zhizn, the court's decision was made in mid-January. The newspaper says that, during the investigation of the criminal case brought by the financial police against the "Narconon" center more than a year ago, it became clear that “the two-storey building which the organization was based was in fact donated ... by the city government [akimat] of Pavlodar.“

In the past, this administrative building was on the balance sheet of the Gorvodocanal PLC, [“City Water Channel” Public Limited Company], which was created by the city government.

"On March 23, 2000, the building was donated for private ownership to an organization whose name local authorities have stubbornly refused to divulge, and, through it, to ‘Narconon.’” In December 2009, the Finance Department of Pavlodar filed a lawsuit in court demanding that the transfer of the building be recognized as illegal. On January 15, 2010, the court granted the claim and decided to "acknowledge the building as belonging to the communal property of the city," writes Nasha Zhizn, noting that "The court's decision has not yet taken effect. Perhaps, ‘Narconon’ will take the initiative and leave the building."

Nasha Zhizn reminds readers that "’Narconon’ is a subdivision of the Church of Scientology, which was founded by Ron Hubbard and is a totalitarian sect banned in 55 countries worldwide. In Kazakhstan during the mid 1990s, Scientologists managed to penetrate centers of power. In Pavlodar, they gave lectures on ‘Dianetics’ to city officials and found support among them."

"Narconon hid its methods from prying eyes by saying that its activity is to provide not treatment, but rehabilitation of drug addicts, and to conduct interviews with them. Occasionally, information leaked out in the press about detoxification programs in which drug addicts stewed in a sauna and were given horse doses of vitamins, plus some yet-undetermined substances," the newspaper writes.

Last year, as previously reported, after complaints by former patients of "Narconon" to law enforcement, the financial police became interested in this mysterious organization and discovered gross irregularities in the work of this "educational" center.

"First of all, the medical activities of the Pavlodar ‘Narconon’ center turned out to be illegal. The organization did not have a license for this. In addition, treatment was provided to addicts by persons with no medical training, and substances illegally imported into Kazakhstan were stored there. Secondly, it was found that ‘Narconon’ illegally engaged in business activities. For services rendered, they took from their clients huge sums of 100,000 to 300,000 tenge, collecting in this manner 5,746,000 tenge. The employees of the organization called these ‘charitable contributions’", says the article.

Nasha Zhizn recalls also that “Scientology literature and files on a thousand patients were found in the ‘Narconon’ office. In the questionnaires, drug addicts had to answer rather odd questions about their sexual experiences and about attitudes toward intelligence organizations. In the criminal world, the usual purpose of such files is to blackmail victims in the future."

"In October last year, 25-year-old Evgeniya Tarkhanova, assistant to the director of the ‘Narconon’ foundation was put on trial. Why was all the responsibility dumped on this girl, while the director stayed on the sidelines? This remains unclear. She had to answer for the illegal business activity of the organization. The Pavlodar Criminal Court fined Tarkhanova $900 MCI, which is equivalent to 1,166,000 tenge", reports the newspaper.

Hi,

I am looking at bringing suit against a facility to get my money back for not knowing it was a front for Scientology; NONE of the "rehabilitation" focused on learning about and dealing with addiction, and the company is preying on vulnerable people who believe they are being helped; I'm looking for any kind of guidance or success stories so that I can figure out my next steps to get my money back....

Help please?

A good answer will depend on which facility you went to, how long ago, and if you've already requested a refund directly from NN or not.  If you don't want to post details here, I'd suggest sending a PM to Mary McConnell.  You can use the red link in the last sentence to do that.

Have you done the Narconon Survey yet?  It's done by friendly volunteers, not by Narconon.  The link is below in my signature.
