Tony Ortega: Ryan Hamilton files lawsuit number eleven against Scientology’s drug rehab network

Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton isn’t slowing down. He’s filed another federal fraud lawsuit against Scientology’s drug rehab facility in Nevada — Rainbow Canyon Retreat in the remote town of Caliente — bringing to eleven the suits he’s filed in recent months against similar centers in California and Colorado.
Hamilton refers to previous lawsuits, which brought out testimony that Narconon’s program is unscientific and even potentially dangerous.
Ryan escaped from Fresh Start on foot in the Summer of [2012], walking eight miles in the summer heat from Fresh Start’s remote facility to Caliente, Nevada. He was forced to drink from streams to avoid dehydration. Ryan has suffered both serious physical and mental injuries from his participation in the treatment program at Fresh Start.
Here’s the complaint…

I like how this attorney Ryan Hamilton is using the multiple overwhelm 'lawsuit tech' on the cult. A little turn-a-bout is-fair-play action. Nice. :thumbsup:

Note: BTW, I'm not actually new here to ESMB. I am a sock puppet. Yes, that's right. Having difficulty logging in with my usual ID. It's not my purpose to cause trouble by saying things as a sock that I wouldn't ordinarily say as "myself". In fact my sock puppet is nicer than the real me.
(Split valence, party of one...or is that two?). I guess I should reveal myself. Nah. I said I was nice, but that doesn't mean that I'm open and forthright too. What am I supposed to be, a perfect little Boy Scout?
