Filing in the U.S. Supreme Court of a case, according to undisputed court papers, of torture of a critic of life-long Catholic Sheriff Joe Arpaio by the Catholic Church affiliated hospital network, Dignity Health. Undisputed allegations in court papers allege forced drugging, forced nudity, forced unnatural restraint, conduct akin to water-boarding, forced irradiation and assault & battery. Life-long catholic federal judge Frederick J. Martone, U.S. District Judge (Arizona), refused to enjoin the torture and dismissed the case. According to court papers, the video surveillance data at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center in Gilbert Arizona that captured the events was destroyed by the Catholic Church. Court papers allege a pattern and custom of conduct by the Catholic Church and Dignity Health to cover-up criminal conduct in a manner consistent with the church's handling of child sex abuse cases.
