Lawsuit status update from Tony Ortega.

Scientology surrenders — at least partially — in seven lawsuits against its rehab network
http://tonyortega.org/2014/07/26/sc...-in-seven-lawsuits-against-its-rehab-network/

Excerpt:
Now, we’ve learned that in seven of those lawsuits, Narconon International and ABLE have been removed after quietly settling with the plaintiffs. The lawsuits remain active, meanwhile, because the local facilities have not settled.

Considering Scientology’s reputation for scorched-earth legal tactics and delaying maneuvers, it may come as quite a shock to some observers that two Scientology organizations, staffed with elite “Sea Org” workers, are cutting checks to quietly get out of these lawsuits.

Here’s the list of lawsuits that Narconon International and ABLE settled, and that will continue, at least for now, only against the facility where the alleged abuses occurred…

Bryan and Nikki Mott (Colorado)
Kenneth and Jered Mowery (Watsonville, CA)
Lori, Ryan, and Jillene Winchell (Nevada)
Charis Yates, Beret and Dean Pugh (Nevada)
Christy Estrada and Braden Chavez (San Diego, CA)
Monica and Sean O’Connell (Watsonville, CA)
Ronald and Jason McClure (Nevada)

We’re left with a lot of questions. If Scientology leader David Miscavige was willing to cut a check to extricate two of his entities from a particular lawsuit, why not write a larger check to get all three of them out?

One answer may have to do with the companies providing these entities with insurance. Our legal experts tell us that increasingly, as Narconon’s troubles have deepened — with patient deaths in Georgia and Oklahoma, and lawsuits piling up all over the country — the companies that provide liability insurance to these facilities are losing patience. We hope to have more about that in a future story.

Geez I really don't know which thread to post on! This link is about Ryan Hamilton.
(Perhaps some kind soul could work out the active and breaking news threads and ask the mods to combine or re-title some for quicker access as they are scattered across various sub forums. I'm totally lost ...)

Update from Tony Ortega: http://tonyortega.org/2014/07/28/sc...vers-dox-the-eric-tenorio-affidavit-and-more/

Some of the lawsuits Hamilton filed have been active long enough that they’re starting to produce some very interesting documents. In the Geanacopulos lawsuit against the Narconon in Nevada, for example, Narconon International and ABLE filed a motion to dismiss, claiming a lack of personal jurisdiction and a failure to state a claim.

Hamilton answers with a detailed response, but also attaches numerous exhibits that we know some of our knowledgeable readers are going to find fascinating.

Exhibit E. Makes statements like this, preceded and followed up by accusations of the plaintiff being vague!

http://i.imgur.com/H5dXXIk.jpg

So Narconon's Fresh Start could employ medically licensed personnel If They Wanted To, But They Don't!

Seeing a personnel list with "I'm just making up these job titles". They actually use descriptions like Withdrawal Specialist. Oops. There's another guy who is both janitor and Case Supervisor. Oops. Another is both Exec Director and Asst ED, as well as Sr Dir of Production, a title usually reserved for Warehouse or Factory managers. Out of 22 employees listed in the first section, 12 of them are "in training" and 12 of them have at least two job positions, several have three. For $33,000 I don't think these parents expected someone overseeing their loved ones withdrawal have to stop in the middle of life threatening emergencies to go unplug the toilet and change the lightbulbs.

I'll be damn. They are boldly stating that the OCA test is Narconon's method of determining the programs effectiveness. Stunned I am.
Next they have to list out all the smoke and mirror websites used as a disguise, none of which has Narconon in the name. The lawyers then copy/pasta the purposes of all 9 TR's. Laughter erupts everywhere.

This is rich. When asked about pesky details like what kind of medical licenses and from where, they actually use the Breining Instute for their one claim of withdrawal specialist. And then clearly state that the (Fresh Start) facility does not deliver counseling or treatment "per se, under the traditional definitions of those descriptions. "

Well, that kind of sums it up, doesn't it? Narconon admits they don't deliver actual counseling or treatment. So pay the man at the door and thanks for coming.

My take on this is that David Miscavige is now having a hard time finding top of the billing heap lawyers who will touch this loser Narconon fraud. It's almost as if some insurance companies don't like getting burned and are spreading the word. It's deja vu' of the PR poison that spread after The Atlantic footbullet. http://tonyortega.org/2014/07/28/sc...enorio-affidavit-and-more/#comment-1508036693

These responses by Narconon are quite amusing.. when not being completely evasive.
http://www.scribd.com/doc/235253978/Geanacopulos-v-Narconon-Exhibit-E-Interrogatories

For example, claims made about the use of OCA on addicts are just stupid and can be easily proven wrong.
OCA has nothing to do with measuring 'behavior traits'

And on being asked to explain in detail how they arrive at the success rate, they claim it's too broad a question, too burdensome....

If explaining how Narconon calculates the success rate for Interrogatory Question 1 is too burdensome, then how do they always come up with the same rate for Fresh Start programs? LOL! I can't wait for this to be expounded upon by Narconon's attorneys

FWIW, I have been adding new lawsuits here to keep track of the running total.

I also have been adding here any news that pertains to more than one Hamilton Narconon lawsuit.

Signs of chaos emerge for Scientology’s Narconon drug rehab legal defense

Signs of chaos emerge for Scientology’s Narconon drug rehab legal defense.

Since this is the place that I place general news concerning the Ryan Hamilton lawsuits, collectively, against Narconon, I'll place this here.

Tony Ortega: Signs of chaos emerge for Scientology’s drug rehab legal defense
http://tonyortega.org/2014/09/01/signs-of-chaos-emerge-for-scientologys-drug-rehab-legal-defense/

Excerpt:
The last time we reported on the 19 lawsuits filed against Scientology’s drug rehab network Narconon by Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton, we told you that Hamilton had won a decisive victory in the Geanacopulos lawsuit when Judge James C. Mahan denied the motion to dismiss filed by Narconon International and the Association for Better Living and Education (ABLE).

We called it an across-the-board victory as Judge Mahan knocked down each of the arguments made by International and ABLE, and we may have been more right than we realized.

We just learned that Narconon’s attorneys have asked that its motions to dismiss in several of the Hamilton lawsuits be withdrawn. There’s no explanation given, and in each of the lawsuits — McClure, Tino, Winchell, and Yates — it’s the law firm of Lewis, Brisbois, Bisgaard & Smith, representing Rainbow Canyon Retreat — the Narconon Fresh Start facility in Caliente, Nevada — which has asked for the withdrawals. (The Geanocopoulis lawsuit also involves the Nevada rehab center.)

But it’s another filing by the Lewis Brisbois law firm that really caught our attention. This one involves the Tarr lawsuit, also filed against Rainbow Canyon Retreat in Nevada, and it’s pretty unusual. The attorneys of Lewis Brisbois are asking for emergency relief because they got screwed over by the attorneys for Narconon International and ABLE.

It turns out that International and ABLE settled with Hamilton’s plaintiffs and got out of the lawsuit without telling Rainbow Canyon Retreat or its attorneys, Lewis Brisbois. And that’s put Lewis Brisbois in a bad position as it apparently puts them over a deadline to submit a list of expert witnesses.

In other words, there’s some chaos going on in Scientology’s defense of its Nevada lawsuits, and one set of attorneys didn’t have the decency to inform another set of attorneys that Narconon International and ABLE had cut a check to get out of one battle. Meanwhile, four other motions to dismiss have been withdrawn without explanation. What’s going on?

They should just give people stimulants like LRH said in friggen Dianetcs and quit trying to get people off of them. I understand getting people off opiates and marijuana but even still for some people its the right thing. Why enforce your own view of drugs or societies view of what your view should be on someone else?

To a point I agree, live and let live and all that. But not when it comes to drugs.
