How do I sue ASR for the abuse I underwent as a student in their care?

The obvious answer is, you hire an attorney. Was there something more specific you were wanting?

In the meantime, consider sharing your experience in the ASR thread.

Been there done that what I am more specifically looking for is what ASR will do to protect their precious reputation? Will they play dirty lowball?

May be able to have your cake and eat it too. Appears a precedent was set with the Alldredge/Ayne suit.

Paul and Diana Lewis and the Alldredge Academy in Davis settled for $1.2 million with a stipulation that the academy would admit responsibility for the death. [Way to go Lewises]

Perhaps this isn't a precedent, but I don't recall it ever happening in the industry.

Never settle. The truth about your treatment needs to be told in open court.
I suggest getting in touch with Phil Elberg. His record is 5 wins out of seven cases (I think) against the tough love industry. If he doesn't take your case he can probably point you in the right direction.

Three Springs: you don't KNOW that the Whitmore Parents have agreed to any settlement.
The case has not gone to trial, and NO ONE has agreed to any settlement whatsoever.
You have no right to call anyone "GREEEDY."

Of course the other thing you wanna think about is who are you gonna sue and what are you gonna sue them for and if you do manage to sue are you going to settle because these scumbags will dangle a lot of money in front of you if it'll help them avoid responsibility for what they did.

Cases that settle don't go to trial.

Criminal charges would be lovely indeed...those who settle for money and throw away a golden opportunity to educate the public, particularly parents, are irresponsible and GREEDY GREEDY GREEDY. They care more about the money then the justice. Of course if they were not irresponsible they probably would not have sent their (now dead) kid away in the first place.

Actually some cases settle before trial and some settle during the trial.  They usually try for a settlement before trial, however and they always want to make the terms confidential with no one admitting guilt; it is how they buy their way out of being responsible for their behavior (now isn't responsibility for one's behavior one of the glorified ten commandments of these TBSs?.  All together now, lets say HYPOCRITE!!!!!!!!!!)

POINT: no one involved in the Civil Case has said the "greedy bitch Whitmore parents" have agreed to settle the civil case with the Sudweeks/Whitmore Academy.
So, why name-calling these parents?
The criminal case against Cheryl Sudweeks is scheduled for September.
So, as of now: both the civil and the criminal cases are scheduled for court!
