Glad to hear the judge did the right thing!


Are you able to request that Benchmark compensate you for your legal fees?



The http://www.fornits.com/psy/CrawfordRuling.pdf'  link has an apostrophe at the end of it that is preventing it from working.

i AM Happy 4 u psy. But, why did you decide to call it a school in the first place?

Quote from: "psy"
Here's a taster.

Quote
The court finds it difficult to classify Benchmark as it disclaims status as a school and does not have
credentialed teachers, yet also disclaims status as a residential treatment facility/program. As the parties
have used the terms "school" and "students" through.çut their documents, the court will adopt these terms,
but notes that use of the terms is for the reader's ease only and without factual support.

Re. the "lawyers' response" (psy's link from the previous page). There are three pages of cases, statutes, laws, etc. referenced in this work (and nicely organized right in the introductory section) that are an incredible resource should a program or similar try this again.

statements on Crawford's website have caused [Benchmark] to suffer a significant drop in new enrollments, from 51 in 2006, to 34 in 2007, and only 13 in 2008. As each enrollment is valued at approximately $60,000 per year, this translated into a substantial economic loss.

 :rasta:  :hug:  8)

You da man! Hey, and lest we forget, Che put himself out there too. In retrospect, all things having come down the way they have, I surely wish I had jumped on that plane and been out there with you.

I fugging wish you had gotten on th plane to you dirty old bird! I never did get any money back for that canceled plane ticket I bought you. Though.. lest we forget this moment is all psy's. He did the leg work, he suffered the anal pucker, and he deserves all of the props.

Now off with me I've an article to write.. yellow journalism at its finest. :shamrock:

Oh Hell Yes!

Why didn't anybody send me an e-mail or something?, this is great news. HOORAH!!!!

So many good things are happening, it is amazing. This is a big win Psy.

Scheff lost, Benchmark lost, SLS shut down by a Federal Judge, CEDU spinoff in Texas closed down....... I mean the good news is pouring in lately!  What will they do when they realize they can't intimidate us anymore?

The Hephzibah girls are wooping up on HH in Indiana and I am pretty sure there is very good news about KHK (although not 100% sure) They are hurting bad.

If I wore a hat, it would be off to you Psy. And even though I think the gookin is a double-agent for the industry, I was glad to see him protest with you. Good job standing up to Benchmark! Keep doing what you are doing!

I'd really like to highlight this.  They did a fantastic job, and I would recommend anybody who speaks out about programs to have a read (not too much legalese, very easy to read, extremely well written, filled with knowledge).

Well.  I'm working on something to announce it formally.  This is sort of a "preview".  Thanks everybody for your congratulations, btw.
