Thanks to one of our researchers, we noticed something odd about the docket in the wrongful death lawsuit that Stacy Murphy's family is pursuing against Scientology's drug rehab center in Oklahoma, Narconon Arrowhead. And when we looked into it, we learned something pretty surprising.

Four years ago this month, Stacy, 20, was found dead in the withdrawal unit at Arrowhead, the victim of an overdose in a drug rehab facility that had no medical personnel on hand. The eastern Oklahoma rehab center was supposed to be the flagship of Scientology's Narconon network, but Stacy's was the third patient death there in nine months, which led to national media and local official investigations. The lawsuits over the previous deaths, of Gabriel Graves and Hillary Holten, have been settled. But we reported last month that the defendants in the lawsuit filed by Stacy's parents had filed a motion for summary judgment, hoping to get the lawsuit kicked out of court.

One of our crack researchers noticed that there were two dates for a hearing on the motion, set for both August 3 and August 17. That didn't seem possible, so we called up Gary Richardson, the former federal prosecutor who is representing Stacy's parents — Robert Murphy and Tonya White — in the lawsuit.
