Lawsuits Filed Against Maharishi University

February 28th, 2006 (AP)--Two federal lawsuits have been filed against
the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield over a stabbing and
a killing at the institution in 2004. The lawsuits were filed by a
former student, John Killian, who was wounded with a ballpoint pen and
the family of another student, Levi Butler, who was later killed in a
campus dining room with a paring knife. The student charged in the
attacks, Shuvender Sem, was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

The lawsuits, filed separately in U.S. District Court in Des Moines,
claim a required twice-daily regimen of meditation was dangerous to
Sem. They also claim the university was negligent for failing to
recognize the threat Sem posed to students, report the initial attack
to authorities and keep Sem away from other students after he attacked
Killian. The university's legal counsel Bill Goldstein says he hadn't
seen the lawsuits and would have to review them before commenting.

Just a bit of unstressing, eh?

It's the Age of Enlightenment. Imagine the serenity if you can get a campus
full of people all doing their thing every day together. Amazing. How many
psychotic breaks over the years? We'll never know. They are shut up and
shuttled out of town faster than you can say "fundraiser".
