Las Vegas attorney files 27th suit against Scientology rehab, Michigan attorney files 2nd - 2015-01-22
Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton has filed his 27th lawsuit against Scientology's drug rehab network, Narconon, and Jeffrey P. Ray, an attorney in Michigan, has added two of his own in just a week's time.
Endorsed by Scientology's most well-known celebrities, such as Tom Cruise and Kirstie Alley, Narconon was for many years one of the organization's most reliable money-makers. But recent patient deaths, negative press attention, and lawsuits around the country have turned Narconon into one of Scientology's biggest headaches.
Unprotected by the religious cloaking that has proved so effective for Scientology itself, Narconon is vulnerable because it advertises one thing (individualized drug counseling with medical professionals and sky-high success rates) and delivers quite another (Scientology training with no medical personnel on hand and no proof of high success rates).
