What a sad story. I still recall their (out of thin air) estimate that 90% of their clients are cured, and am with holding my ugly comments, other than to say that I do not know  scientologist that could pass a statistics course.

I think you will find that CoS statistics generally defy logic.

I nominate Free for a goldenrod too.

There is a picture of Mary Reiser, ED of Narconon on their facebook page. She is the first lady on the right in the blue dress.

SkyDog. Pictures of all the players can be found @ the following link.

http://ocmb.xenu.net/ocmb/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=33257

he one picture of Maria Delgado was taken @ a Sandy Springs zoning meeting.

That thread takes so long to load. Better to just post a link to the jpg of the particular photo.

I know that this is what I did on the individual docs from that thread ( recently posted here in Patrick Desmond case thread ) because it's torture for people to wait for that thread to load for all  the images that is posted on it. I figure that is why there were so few comments on it. Those docs are a treasure and I wanted to see them with the court docs in one place without the agata

Today is the 3rd Anniversary of Reaching for the Tipping Point, so Happy Anniversary to all of our supporters; we got you a gift.   Thanks to the donor who paid for this gift - we all appreciate it!   oo==$$  oo==$$  oo==$$

New documents in the Patrick Desmond Wrongful Death case against Narconon of Georgia and Narconon International (as well as some others) - Happy Reading to all of you document loving people!

This next document was posted previously, but we ended up with a second copy with this latest go-round of the delightful game of Records Retrieval at the Courthouse of DeKalb County.  This second copy happens to have a page that was missing from the previous batch of papers - how coincidental and/or interesting.  Or maybe it's just incompetence.

This is perhaps a misfiling, as I cannot find Michael D. Rosenbloum listed anywhere in reference to this case.  Whoever you are, Mr. Rosenbloum, I hope you enjoy all the time off.

OMG! This is such a wonderful surprise!! Thanks for posting this!! Definately a must read. RICO is a most serious thing:

CIVIL RICO
by Law Office of John H. Watson in GA
 
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO)

Sometimes there are extraordinary remedies available in addition to the normal lawsuit to enforce a business obligation.  One such possible course of action is civil RICO. 

RICO stands for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations. 

It was enacted as a federal law to combat organized crime, and many states adopted similar laws. 

In addition to the strict criminal provisions, there are civil provisions.  This will address the Georgia RICO laws.....

Thanks for that link on civil RICO, Mary.

The amended complaint is very thorough. I am just extremely sad for this family after re-reading the events that led to Patrick Desmond's death.

Yes, mefree, same here. Looks like Brandon Ormsby, who called 911, omitted to the police that he was a current student of Narconon - looks like the 'hotel' he was in was one NN GA sent him to, probably for discipline purposes as some were as described in the complaint.
