Updates in the Houston FMS Trial: USA v Peterson et al

Updates in the Houston FMS Trial: USA v Peterson et al
If you have an interest in False Memory Syndrome, but haven't been checking FMSF Online, you should. It contains very frequent updates, at least one following each day of the trial. This is "the first criminal trial involving charges against therapists in connection with 'false' or 'recovered' memories.... Among other things, the prosecution intends to establish that the defendants applied techniques associated with mind control or 'brainwashing' to induce patients to believe that they had been ritually abused, sexually and otherwise, in satanic cults." One recent development of interest to many is the naming of Dr. Bennett Braun as an unindicted co-conspirator. Dr. Braun "served as Medical Director of the Dissociative Disorders Program at Rush North Shore Medical Center, Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center, Skokie, Illinois. Dr. Braun and Rush-Presbyterian settled a lawsuit brought by Patricia Burgus for $10.6 million last year. Most recently, the Illinois License Board has brought action to remove Braun's license."
