Narconon Arrowhead faces fourth lawsuit this year - McAlester News Capital

November 27, 2012

Staff Writer

McALESTER — A lawsuit was filed Monday against Narconon Arrowhead by a man who suffered from the same disease as a woman who was found dead at the facility earlier this year.

The lawsuit was filed in Pittsburg County District Court by 21-year-old William Scott. According to the suit, Scott is a former patient of the facility with medical condition called Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, a condition that requires daily medication which the facility failed to give him.

The condition is the same as that of 21-year-old Hillary Holten who was found dead at the facility in April. Her autopsy reported the cause of her death as unknown and the manner of death is undetermined.

The flagship branch of an international drug rehab program located in Canadian, Narconon Arrowhead’s program is based on the teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

Scott’s lawsuit states that Scientology founder Hubbard had “no known training or education in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.”

The suit is the latest in a string of lawsuits filed this year and an ongoing investigation into the Scientology based facility after three people were found dead in a span of nine months.

Gabriel Graves, Hillary Holten and Stacy Murphy were all found dead at the facility between Oct. of 2011 and July of 2012.

A fourth person, Kaycie Werninck, also died in 2009. while a patient of the facility.

In August, a lawsuit was filed by Matthew and Suzan Holten, the parents of Hillary Holten, alleging Narconon did not provide adequate medical care for their daughter and that she died as a result of Narconon’s negligence.

In October another lawsuit was filed by the parents of Stacy Murphy who was found dead at Narconon Arrowhead in July.

Robert Murphy and Tonya White, parents of 20-year-old Stacy Murphy of Owasso, filed the lawsuit seeking damages in excess of $75,0000 against Narconon International, the Association for Better Living and Education International and Dr. Gerald Wootan.

Also in October, the Shirley Gillaim mother of Gabriel Graves filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that her son “repeatedly evidenced symptoms of feeling ill, headaches and vomiting,” but was never referred to a physician.

The suit states that Gabriel Graves was found dead the day after he complained of a terrible headache following sauna treatments. In 2009 Keith and Connie Werninck, the parents of Kaysie Werninck, filed a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit alleging their daughter “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” She died at Community Hospital Lakeview, in Eufaula, The case was settled in 2011.

Meanwhile in the lawsuit filed Monday alleges that during the 18 days that Scott was a patient of Narconon Arrowhead, he was not provided his prescribed medication causing him to be “rushed to the hospital on three separate occasions, twice by ambulance.”

Yes, who me?.  I think we could safely extrapolate to say that the definition of insanity is what the study of scientology inflicts on people.

It never dawns on them how flawed it is because Narconon's focus is on the money, and on KSW (Keeping Scientology Working).  Nothing else matters to them.  I suppose it also never dawns on them that if scientology worked, they wouldn't have to go to such extreme efforts to "keep scientology working."

Everyone focused on Gabriel when those were posted.  There was another person hurt, too.  "Joe"/Scott.  I hope he will prevail in his case, and I hope he will recover from his injuries.

To think that Narconon of Oklahoma, aka Narconon Arrowhead, is the training center for all other Narconons.  Something is terribly, terribly wrong with Narconon.  It has to be stopped, or these types of events will continue to spread, as they have already.

Arrowhead actually only did a little bit of training.  It was a pipe dream/propaganda line from "management" that Arrowhead was the international training center.  Some people did train there, yes.  Most existing centers just trained their own staff.  Places like the Narconon centers in California were actually offended that Oklahoma got a shiny new building and lots of attention.  Narconon International also felt bypassed in the church events because they were hardly even mentioned, yet so much attention was placed on Arrowhead.  The only reason for all of that was to extract more money from parishioners to "prove" what they were accomplishing.  Smoke and mirrors. 

I have tons of stories about all the attempts to get the training center going - each one of them flopped, because the only ones who really wanted one were Miscavige and his event propaganda team.  One example was how 100 staff from Indonesian prisons were supposed to come and train.  That empty promise was part of the reason Arrowhead purchased that money-pit of a hotel in McAlester...

Ahhh yes, the international training center (que trumpets).  What a joke that is. I thought to myself, "if this guy is such a bad ass, then just order everyone from nn to come here and train."  Never happened, couple from israel, couple from holland, the reverends and thats about it.  Millions spent for naught.  Total PR.

Not sure if this was ever included.

Back in 2010, OTBT posted about 2  Michigan Attorney General complaint cases settled in 2010 and reported in Sept 2010 by the state database. One for A Forever Recovery and the other for Narconon Stone Hawk
https://whyweprotest.net/community/threads/narconon-successfully-sued-for-10k.64927/

Here are the details for State of Michigan attorney cases:

1383 Drury, Ann L v Narconon Stone Hawk 5/14/2010 $10,000 for consumer

1234 Delguidice, Gail and Michael v A forever Recovery 2009 $8,000 for consumer


OTBT's post has screenshots of them. There is no direct link to easily locate these on the state site except to an xls file via google search. It's something like this:

New Lawsuit - Russell v. Narconon International et. al.
« on: November 21, 2012, 09:10 »

http://dockets.justia.com/docket/florida/flndce/3:2012cv00551/68406/
Plaintiff:    WILLIAM RUSSELL
Defendants:    NARCONON INTERNATIONAL, NARCONON GULF COAST INC. and XYZ ENTITIES 1 - 10
Case Number:    3:2012cv00551
Filed:    November 16, 2012
Court:    Florida Northern District Court
Office:    Pensacola Office
County:    Okaloosa
Presiding Judge:    M CASEY RODGERS
Referring Judge:    ELIZABETH M TIMOTHY
Nature of Suit:    Labor - Fair Labor Standards Act
Cause:    15:2
Jurisdiction:    Federal Question       
Jury Demanded By:    Plaintiff

This lawsuit, thankfully, is not another wrongful death or bodily injury case, but is important, nonetheless, with potential repercussions for Narconon nationally.

This case alleges that Narconon International and its branches have not paid the Plaintiff or other unnamed Employees past and present for overtime work during the period of November 2009 and November 2012, and that Plaintiff and all other employees during that period are entitled to overtime pay for their work.  The Plaintiff seeks compensation for all overtime hours worked at one and one-half times their regular pay rate, including interest.

http://alley.ethercat.com/storage/US-3-12-CV-00551-MCR-EMT/US-3-12-CV-00551-MCR-EMT-2012-11-16-Complaint.pdf

Defendants are listed as "Narconon International, a/k/a Narconon Southern California, Narconon Gulf Coast Inc., and XYZ Entities 1-10."

The complaint states:
Quote

    It is the intent of this collective action to apply to all similarly situated employees of Defendants regardless of location, such that the scope of this collective action is nationwide and includes each and every State in the United States at which Defendants have been doing business within the three (3) year statute of limitations period between November 2009 and the present.


So anyone reading who has worked at ANY Narconon during that period of time may want to contact the attorneys in this case to be included:

the surrounding area.
http:// news .narconon .org /pdf /narconon-newsletter-march- 2012 .pdf


Roger Davis is a Registered Addiction Specialist (RAS), Forensic Addictions Counselor (FAC), Certified Co-occurring Disorders Specialist (CCDS) and Certified Women’s Issues Specialist (CWIS). Roger received his training through The Breining Institute, Skidmore University, Charles Drew University and is certified in delivering the Narconon Truth about Drugs lecture series. Roger started working as a drug dependency counselor in 1999 and has been a full time drug educator with Narconon since 2005.

Roger has worked with Boys & Girls Club, Hope for Life Foundation, Salvation Army, Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca, Los Angeles County Juvenile Probation, Men’s Health, Veterans Shelters, World Literacy Crusade, Washington High School, Tabatha's House Bakersfield, SEA Education Centers, Watts Family and Community Center, Inglewood Community Center, Compton City Counsel, Watts Labor Community Family Development Network and many more.

Roger is a military veteran having served in the US Army 101st Airborne Division; he sustained injuries, received an honorable discharge, is a service connected disabled veteran, and served on the Honor Guard for the inauguration of President Ronald Regan. Roger found himself involved with alcohol and drugs after the military, but was able to turn his life around after discovering the rehabilitation technology of Narconon. After that, he dedicated himself to helping others get off of drugs and to educating our society’s youth about the dangers of drugs.

Having been raised in Harlem, NY, Roger’s background as a reformed gang member, reformed drug & alcohol user and veteran, give him valuable
credibility with many of the youth of the inner city. While many of the inner city youth do not accept information from “authority figures”,

Roger not only gives respect, but receives respect in return. He is not only recognized by the community groups within the inner city, but also by some of the inner city gang leaders, who have actually been known to give Roger a “free pass” into their territories to allow him educate their youth.

Roger Davis with Sheriff Dept Roger has spoken to more than 200,000
students, parents and teachers on the dangers of drugs at more than 100
schools & organizations throughout many counties in California and has
also been invited to speak at many inner city conferences and events. He
is very well known for his expertise on how to get inner city youth to
understand the dangers of drugs and understand the path to living a successful and productive life. What sets Roger apart is his ability to connect with the various ethnic cultures of the inner city, building good rapport and relationships with them, and gaining the trust of those who do not easily give trust.

Roger has received many acknowledgements for his effective drug education
seminars by students, counselors, teachers, business leaders, schools and
government agencies & officials.

SCIENTOLOGY DRUG REHAB CENTER HIT WITH FIVE MORE LAWSUITS

Quote
Scientology’s troubled flagship drug rehab facility in Oklahoma — Narconon Arrowhead — was hit with five additional lawsuits today, all filed by Gary Richardson, the attorney who is handling four other wrongful death and fraud suits against the center.

The lawsuits…

– Mary Cantu is suing for fraud after paying $13,000 to Narconon for her son to attend in July 2011, but then he left in a panic just two weeks later after feeling his safety was endangered.

– Lisa Gray is suing after putting her son in the facility in May 2011 and then removing him in July. Like Cantu, she says Narconon is a fraudulent program that doesn’t deliver what it promises.

– Gina Nelsen is suing after paying $25,000 for her son’s treatment in October 2012. When she raised questions about the untruths she’d been told about the program, she alleges that her son was kicked out of the facility, “Thereafter, the Defendants transported Plaintiff’s son to the Salvation Army in Tulsa, Oklahoma, more than a hundred miles away, with only the clothes on his back, where he stayed until he was able to take a bus and secure some clothing, that was donated by local churches and friends.”

– Sue Ann Newman and Dena Shobe are suing after Sue Ann was admitted as a patient at Narconon in May 2012 on false promises that she and her sister, Dena Shobe, could get a special low price through a work program. Instead, “Defendants fraudulently, and without Plaintiffs’ knowledge or permission, applied for a Discovery Card and a Visa Card, in the name of Plaintiff, SHOBE. Thereafter, Defendants fraudulently billed to Plaintiff’s Discovery credit car $7,000 and billed $7,500 to Plaintiff’s Visa credit card, again, all without the knowledge and/or permission of the Plaintiffs.”

– Vicki White is suing because she says fraudulent means were used to enroll her son in Narconon and keep him there, despite her attempts to get him out because of concerns that his medical needs weren’t being addressed. Like the others, she is alleging that Narconon’s business practices are simply a form of fraud.

No matter what I know about this evil scam, I continue to be amazed at the unethical and illegal lengths that individuals will go to. The fraudulent credit card allegations are still stunning. I've read similar allegations about scientology members being robbed this way. One might conclude their actions reek of desperation.  From here, its beginning to look like just another day in scientology.
The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

El Rum's "Make money, make money, make more money." line doesn't say a word about making the money legally.

But's its still a <sarcasm> shock </sarcasm> to see "The most ethical people on the planet." pulling this kind of stuff.
