There have been several Narconon related lawsuits in Germany.
1) Arbeitsgericht München Az.: 24 Ca 14748/86 http://www.ingo-heinemann.de/arb14748.htm
This was a labor court decision. The plaintiff successfully sued Narconon to get paid properly and won about $10000 in back pay.
2) Verwaltungsgerichtshof Baden-Württemberg Az.: 1 S 3021/92 http://home.snafu.de/tilman/krasel/germany/vgh2192.html
This was an administrative court decision. The court decided that a state official was right to claim that not a single successful narconon rehabilitation had been proven.
3) Amtsgericht Miesbach, Az: Cs 65 Js 21802/90 http://home.snafu.de/tilman/narconon.tif
