Narconon, a Georgia drug treatment clinic, is facing serious charges of insurance fraud. The Norcross, Georgia center was recently raided under various search warrants, with documents and other items being seized by police. It is suspected that the total fraud being alleged in this case amounts to approximately $3 million. The treatment clinic could find itself facing civil lawsuits in addition to the current fraud investigation that appears to be ongoing.
Earlier this week, the Supreme Court of the United States made a ruling that has since been the subject of wide discussion and intense scrutiny: it upheld the Affordable Care Act, the health care law championed by President Obama. Now, small business owners and entrepreneurs in Georgia and throughout the country are wondering whether the health care mandate will affect their business plans.
Georgia business owners may be interested to know of a rather contentious proceeding taking place in the town of Louisiana in Missouri. There, the owners of a store called French Hen Antiques have been caught up in unexpected business litigation regarding the structural integrity of their building. So far, the owners have been ordered to pay more than $500 in court fees and fines. However, that is on top of being ordered to rehabilitate the building, which may cost more than $100,000.
