In court today: Battle over government report on wrongdoing at Scientology rehab facility - 2014-09-23
We're looking forward to getting reports on how a hearing goes today in McAlester, Oklahoma. Attorney Gary Richardson (right) is trying to convince the state to turn over a report which could be devastating to Scientology's drug rehab network, Narconon. The hearing starts at 2:30 pm Eastern time, and we're hoping to get a report from the scene as soon as the hearing finishes.
What's at stake? Last month, we told you about two stunning lawsuits filed by a former state inspector general named Kimberly Poff and one of her former investigators, Michael DeLong. Working for the state's Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Poff and DeLong say they had uncovered wrongdoing in the wake of several deaths at Scientology's flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead, and had recommended that it be shut down.
