Media Release: Scientology Miscavige Narconon new Lawsuits in Canada and USA

Bookmark and Share



Stunning Scientology Narconon news keeps circling the globe, and this time, even Scientology's leader, David Miscavige is named as a conspirator:

"Defendants intentionally engaged in a common plan to utilize NAFC's Certification, Mark and Logo to attract customers to Defendants' drug treatment facilities. Defendants acted in concert, agreed and cooperated to achieve such misuse and each took affirmative steps to encourage the achievement of their plan."

By David Love Media Release (05/19/2014) - The timing was ironic that a new lawsuit was just filed in a Montreal Court of Quebec against Narconon Trois-Riviers director, Therese Sansfaçon, as being tortious liable and negligent in mismanagement that arose when the injured Narconon victim suffered by the tort can be attributed to carelessness in the oversight of some aspect of the corporation's operations.

Several additional lawsuits are being drafted for submission to the Quebec and Ontario Courts against Executives et al.

Then, on Friday, May 19, 2014, 80 defendants were named in Lawsuits in the United States, Canada, and the UK.


In Canada - Marc Bernard, Nick Hayes, Scott Burgess, Sylvain Fournier, Narconon Incorporated, and the infamous, Narconon Trois-Rivieres -- all named as defendants

All of these new cases were filed by Attorney Gary Richardson from Oklahoma for conspiring to misuse counseling credentials.

Tony Ortega reports on his Underground Bunker:

"The National Association of Forensic Counselors filed a stunning lawsuit on Friday against not only Scientology's Narconon drug rehab network in the US, Canada, and the UK, but also Scientology leader David Miscavige himself, alleging that Scientology knowingly and for years conspired to give the false impression that its rehab facilities and many of its staff members were accredited by the NAFC."

'The Underground Bunker' reports:

"Another very intriguing element of the lawsuit: The NAFC says that David Miscavige, at a Scientology event, publicly gave bogus information about Narconon's certification."

"National Association of Forensic Counselors vs. Narconon"

Since this breaking news story was published, Anonymous on Why We Protest (WWP), and other forums are digging deep for more information to direct to media.

Former Narconon Trois-Rivieres patient and staff member, Nick Hayes, still has a website up promoting himself as Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor.


Defendant, Scott Burgess from Narconon Trois-Rivieres, has numerous websites promoting his bogus credentials as a Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor. The internet is riddled with this fraud as seen here on the Burgess Twitter account, and his Drug Rehab Blog.


Marc Bernard, ex-Narconon Trois-Rivieres Executive Director is also named in the lawsuit. The center was closed by the Quebec Health Ministry, citing numerous health risks and dangers to patients.


Sylvain Fournier still has a website up stating he is a C.C.D.C. Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor. At one time, Fournier was the Executive Director at Narconon Trois-Rivieres, but was removed from his post for reason not yet published.

Also named in the lawsuit is Narconon Incorporated, a Canadian entity registered with Revenue Canada as a charity - slso knon as ABLE Canada, directed by Brad Menychuk who once stated in a meeting in Ottawa on May 30, 2002, that:


"Our Narconons are improving, and some of them are very close to a 100% success rate.

Comments posted on WWP:

- They masqueraded as having National Association of Forensic counselors approval, lied about a 77% success rate, and had numerous deaths, and even more failed rehabilitation and relapses. There incompetence has sullied the name of the association.

- Imho, the NAFC has to act and they have to play to win, or they will be exposed like the other no-credit agency who gave some partial accreditation to Narconon. A simple sentence on Wikipedia, that the independent no-credit agency is funded by who they accredited could cause a collapse, and others struggling to avoid the same fate.

Link to Lawsuit posted here by Tony Ortega on Scribd:

On page 36 of 44 in the filed Lawsuit, David Miscavige is slammed with:

Defendant David Miscavige ("Miscavige") is a Trustee and the Chairman of the Board of Defendant RTC. 246.

Defendant ABLE is a Scientology organization formed to expand all Scientology activities and organizations within a particular continental area, which, relevant hereto, involves promotion of the drug rehabilitation fields, such as the Narconon Network.

Upon information and belief, RTC and ABLE strictly control Narconon as an arm of the Defendant Church of Scientology International through licensing agreements and L. Ron Hubbard's teachings.

In order to promote Defendants Church of Scientology, RTC and the Narconon Treatment Centers, Miscavige spoke during an event transmitted via satellite from a packed Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida concerning the NBAE certifications, falsely claiming: a.

That the NBAE certifications are a necessary prerequisite for counselors to obtain insurance and state or federal funding;

That NBAE was influenced by the L. Ron Hubbard drug rehab technology;

That Narconon executives have been accepted to the NBAE;

That Narconon executives have the authority to provide drug certifications;

That Narconon staff briefed the NBAE on L. Ron Hubbard's drug rehab technology and how their staff are trained - it changed NBAE's whole "think"; and;

That the training in L. Ron Hubbard's technology at Narconon now officially replaced all college training requirements.

Miscavige, RTC, ABLE and Church of Scientology participated in a scheme with the other Defendants to use the NAFC certifications to bolster the Narconon Network and its counselors in the public perception.

Many ex-Scientologists are commenting on Facebook and Forums that David Miscavige and his empire of dwindling members and empty buildings, could be in for more severe scrutiny down the line by the IRS if Scientology is deemed a business, not a religion.

Comal County Judge Dib Waldrip rejected Scientology's 'anti-SLAPP' in a contentious case: "Monique Rathbun v David Miscavige and Scientology Incorporated"

"As Defendant CSI [Church of Scientology International] asserts and argues, Mark Rathbun's activity of offering Scientology services is a business. If so, the Church's own activity of offering Scientology services is also a business."

It's good to see these names being reported in the media for the crimes they commit! I hope these lawsuits drink them all dry.

Scientology criminals
And these insane crooks were ordered to cease and desist and refused. I have downloaded their NarCONon.Org web site, it is 312 megabytes, 9120 files and there are numerous quack medical frauds being perpetrated on the web site even as Scientology is trying to eliminate some of the more actionable frauds.

Now I need to get more of their fraudulent web sites. The people who instigated this latest round of lawsuits did theirs; they downloaded the web sites, it looks like, so they can present the evidence to the jury.
