    Especially when it comes to NarCONon sucking $ out of families for what they think is a real drug addiction program killing and recruiting it's way through it's clientele. Why Kate is recommending MORE Elcon claptrap on a NarCONon Lawsuit thread is very telling.

    Very nice job derailing the thread into some generalized discussion of drug policy, particularly and immediately after the most recent development. People seem to be falling for it. Very well done.

    Oh, and as for that important most recent development that, you know, is actually relevant to the specific topic of this thread:

    Signs of chaos emerge for Scientology’s Narconon drug rehab legal defense.

    Since this is the place that I place general news concerning the Ryan Hamilton lawsuits, collectively, against Narconon, I'll place this here.

    It is interesting...that the CofS.....I suppose at one time, claiming that LRH writing are "scripture," that this claim can now come back and bite them in the ass....on these Narconon cases.

    The whole of Narconon is based upon Scientology processes, many of which are bridge actions. TRs Objectives, Purif, PTS/SP ups and Downs date, ethics conditions... They are one and the same, just in different formats ( include illustrations, different covers for the books or variations on the course titles. Here is a link to all the program course books in sequence

    Tony Ortega: Ryan Hamilton’s plan to consolidate his lawsuits against Scientology rehabs is denied

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    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.

    Ryan Hamilton’s plan to consolidate his lawsuits against rehabs is denied

    Hamilton Petition of Dec 29 Multi District Litigation Panel: Order denying doc:
    Kudos to Ryan Hamilton for trying :thumbsup:

    The subject of how to sue in a more consolidated manner, while filing claims on the merits unique to each case and reaping the most for victims, is a complex matter which I have researched, pondered and discussed with others over the years in my wish to see more victims at least be able to get their day in court, especially during the years when there was a dearth of attorneys willing to take cases because of cost effective concerns as well as fears of Scientology fair game attacks. There is no simple solution to this yet but Ryan gets much credit on trying to go this route because it was the closest to simplifying matters and not at the expense of helping victims of the program. I am sure he will persevere and work around this minor setback in his overall progress.

    Re: from the order
    I guess we have to see how willing Narconon attorneys really are in in their claim that they are willing to coordinate discovery with respect to discovery of common third-party or Narconon witnesses.
