The case has settled.
Tampa Bay Times: Hernando commissioners approve mediated settlement over Narconon expansion plans
I suppose that money will go back out in wrongful death damages elsewhere.......
I felt sick reading that
I felt like this guy
The U.S. probably has the most dysfunctional and corrupted judicial system of all the industrialised countries. The jury awarded the cult $74,490 when the cult should have got zero, then the cult baws and gets a new trial and get $1,970,000 in mediation. "Discrimination"? That's the very thing scientology does through Fair Game. Incredible.
As if it's not going to be another sock-puppet Narconon...
But if they're legit, why are they getting in bed with Narconon?
Scientology plays Florida officials for the saps they are
By Tony Ortega
We’re sorry, Florida, but you’ve had more than enough time to wake up about Scientology and how it operates. We’re feeling no pity for Hernando County which, Joe Childs reported last night, will end up paying $1.97 million as a result of mediation after being found guilty of discrimination against Scientology’s drug rehab center in Spring Hill, Suncoast Rehabilitation Center.
Get this: The Narconon rehab center is taking the money even though it’s not even sticking around to enjoy its victory, which gave it the legal right to expand its facility in Spring Hill. Instead, another (non-Scientology) rehab network, Maryland-based Rivermend Health, is taking over the place as Suncoast moves down to Clearwater, into a former Baptist church.
Plans to convert the Baptist church into a full-blown rehab center (with saunas for the Scientology Purification Rundown) have already been drawn up, even though the facility has only applied for a “halfway house” license.
Meanwhile, Childs revealed that when it didn’t get its way initially in Hernando County in 2011, Suncoast rented three additional locations for staff and patients, which was a violation of its license.
So let’s add it up. A Narconon center — a business steeped in deceptive practices, as we’ve seen in numerous examples around the country — tries to expand against the wishes of the local county, flouts state law when it doesn’t get its way, then sues the county, wins nearly $2 million, but is now moving to a different place where it will have a license that doesn’t allow the kinds of treatments we all know they’ll keep on doing anyay.
But the local, state, and federal officials in this country are so ignorant about an organization which has been flouting the law and harming people in exactly the same ways, over and over again for more than 60 years, we really find it hard to feel sorry for them.
Florida deserves Scientology.
