Hi all, just to give you a sense of how serious this is, here are some of the main and RICO claims in the complaint . Keep in mnd that one of the plaintiff's attorney's ( J Antonio DelCampo, was originally a judge overseeing the case when it first began. He retired and then joined the plaintiff team Harris Penn Lowry DelCampo, LLP. and started helping the lead attorney on it. That says much about the strength of the case.

( NNG=Narconon of Georgia; NNI = Narconon International; Delgado Development - Don and Maria Delgado, CoS Georgia [..]

[..]COUNT VIII:
CIVIL RICO FOR FALSE STATEMENTS TO A GOVERNMENT AGENCY

167.

and scope of Dr. Robbins' duties as a medical director as contemplated and
required by DHR in order for NNG to obtain its 2007 ambulatory detoxification
license.

b. Knowingly and willfully falsifying Joan Daniels as a clinical director on all

concealing from DHR the true nature and scope of Robin Muse's employment,
which was contrary to that required by DHR for clinical directors.

d. Knowingly and willfully concealing from DHR that NNG was illegally
operating a residential drug and rehabilitation facility without the proper
licensing from the State on all license applications between 2003 and 2007.

application solely for an outpatient facility.

compliance with creating adequate individualized treatment plans, routinely
updating patient files, and creating discharge and aftercare plans on all license

Interesting that Social Betterment Properties International ( owner of the Narconon Pacific Coast property), has recently bought or had transferred to it a series of properties in Ventura County.

Makes me wonder if NArconon Pacific Coast treating more patients at these other locations ( as did/does Narconon Sunshine Summit Lodge at nearby properties). No doubt, Social Betterment Properties will be using them for something. 

I have located the addresses for these newest properties via searching the Assessor's Parcel Number (APNs)
APN#:2060073130  Property Address   224 E Clara Street, Port Hueneme 
APN#:2060073010  Property Address   356 N Second Street, Oxnard
APN#:2060073110  Property Address   328 N Second Street, Oxnard
APN#:2060073090  Property Address   235 E Pearl Street, Oxnard
http://assessor.countyofventura.org/research/propertyinfo.asp

They are being billed taxes, which in some cases are quite high. One can search Assessor's Parcel Number (APN)  for property taxes assessed on each here https://prop-tax.countyofventura.org/Default.aspx

There is no relation that I can see between the two entities other than the transfer of the properties:

Narconon in California / Re: Narconon Ojai
« Last post by Mary_McConnell on February 02, 2019, 22:42 »
Looks like they've gone back to 'Narconon Pacific Coast' with the IRS:

As of 12/10/18:

EIN: 463559503
NAME: NARCONON INTERNATIONAL
CONTACT: LK DION
ADDRESS: ,PO BOX 1509
CITY: OJAI
STATE: CA
ZIP: 93024-1509
GEN: 2595 (Narconon Int)
STATUS: 03 (501(c)3 Exempt Organization)
AFFILIATION: 9 (Subordinate Organization)
RULING: 197501
DBA: NARCONON PACIFIC COAST

The last 990 I can find is from 2016. Oddly enough, even though the Exempt Org database still shows them as part of NN Int under GEN 2595,  they don't mention NN Int, or use their Group Exemption Number, on the return.

Hi BigBeard,

According to it's initial incorporation paperwork and bi-annual filings since 2013, this entity has always been registered with the State of California as Narconon Pacific Coast. No mention of Narconon Ojai.
https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov/

However, they finally registered the name Narconon Ojai in Ventura County as a legal fictitious name, as well as there business name Narconon Pacific Coast, back in 2015
Drag a column header here to group by that column

" Fictitious Business Name Filing Requirements

https://recorder.countyofventura.org/county-clerk/county-clerk/fictitious-business-name/

Of course, they have been using the Narconon Ojai name from the onset, as well as their site name
https:// www. narcononojai.org/

But it is a fictitious name

Edit to add: They are under the Narconon Int tax exempt umbrella ( as are some other Narconons)

Thanks for posting the returns on the wiki, DH. Here is resource I use for obtaining them

California Registry of Charitable Trusts ( search any California Charity )

The Registry Verification Search allows you to search and verify whether a charitable organization or fundraiser has complied with the Attorney General’s registration and reporting requirements. You can also review records and other public filing that a charitable organization or fundraiser has submitted to the Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts. The Registry’s database contains copies of most public filings required to be filed by charitable organizations, charitable trustees and fundraising professionals. This tool allows you to download copies of annual registration renewal forms (RRF-1), copies of IRS Forms 990, raffle reports and other fundraising reports that are in the Registry’s database.
