The lawsuit also states her parents were assured the facility had adequate medical staff which could properly manage their daughter’s Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, a condition which required daily doses of Dexamethasone and in extreme circumstances, an injection of liquid cortisone.
In October, Robert Murphy and Tonya White, parents of 20-year-old Stacy Dawn Murphy, of Owasso, filed suit against Narconon, alleging the facility was grossly negligent, willful, wanton and reckless. According to the lawsuit the family is seeking damages in excess of $75,000 from Narconon Arrowhead, Narconon International, the Association for Better Living and Education International and Dr. Gerald Wootan.
The lawsuit alleges that “Narconon’s actions were grossly negligent, willful, wanton and reckless resulting in the suffering and death of Stacy Murphy, the plaintiff’s daughter.”
The lawsuit also alleged that the organizations being sued worked to “tortuously operate a dangerous, unsafe an unsupervised drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.”
Calls to John Bittinas, public relations person for Narconon Arrowhead, were not returned by press-time today.
