A Roaring Fork Valley man with a recent spate of local arrests has settled a lawsuit with a Fort Collins rehab facility that he claims held him prisoner and subjected him to the practice of Scientology.

Ben Levy, 28, sued A Life Worth Saving, which is part of the California-based Narconon International, last June. Narconon has no connection to Narcotics Anonymous or other 12-step programs.

An order entered by U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty said that a settlement has been reached on all of Levy's claims for negligence, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and battery. Levy's suit sought at least $75,000.
