Just filed yesterday. Narconon Fresh Start, Dan Carmichael, and Sunshine Summit Lodge apparently haven’t had enough lawsuits filed against them and subsequent outpouring of settlement cash (albeit, in exchange for signed gag agreements) to teach them any lessons about deliberately deceiving people and how their insatiable hunger for money at the expense of the truth will ultimately be their downfall.
