Drug center to appeal closing order - 1992-01-31
A February hearing is scheduled on the state's request to shut the center, on Indian land six miles north of Newkirk near the Kansas border.
Narconon attorneys on Thursday asked District Judge John Amick for a permanent injunction against any state-ordered closing. Amick upheld a restraining order last month allowing Narconon Chilocco to stay open despite the state denial of certification.
Narconon Chilocco's request came one day after another Oklahoma County judge refused to issue an order that would have let the center keep operating while it appeals the certification denial in Oklahoma and Kay county courts.
