Turnabout Ranch avoids lawsuit due to the law limitations
« on: January 08, 2014, 06:10:38 AM »
Unfortunately Turnabout Ranch manages to get out of a lawsuit which included alleged torture. 15 year old Elizabeth Verney told how she was subjected to hours of stress positions, threats of suffocation, exposure to animal abuse and regular public humiliation.

Unfortunately too many years had passed since 2006 when the poor girl was put through her ordeal, so the judge dismissed the case due to the two-year statute of limitations.

Independent Turnabout Ranch on Dr. Phil

Turn-about Ranch came on the Dr. Phil show as independent program January 30 where they took an innocent 16 year old into their program. The dysfunctional family she was raised in got off rather easy being able to do their part of the hard work using an app.

An app? Seriously?
