Ryan Hamilton's plan to consolidate his lawsuits against Scientology rehabs is denied - 2015-02-08
Ryan Hamilton We're so used to Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton running roughshod over his opponents, this comes as a bit of a surprise. But Hamilton's attempt to have his many lawsuits in several states against Scientology's drug rehab network Narconon consolidated into a single federal court in Nevada was rejected on Friday.
Consolidating the cases would have simplified things for Hamilton - with so many cases (27 filed in total), they're generating many motions which are very similar to each other.
But the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation found that the cases, while similar, had enough differences to argue against consolidating them into one court.
