District Court of Bonneville County, Idaho.
Case # CV-2011-0006974-OCDistrict
Last week, Vianna Stibal and her Theta Healing Institute of Knowledge stood trial in the District Court of Bonneville County, Idaho. She was sued by one of her former students for FRAUD.
Vianna is not a stranger to the court system in Idaho. A simple search in the public records will bring up several different misdemeanor run-ins with the law, as well as an instance of her suing an individual by the name of Guy Stibal. Wait…. Yes. THAT Guy Stibal. It seems that back in 2001, Vianna even took to court her very own husband – Guy Stibal. But we’ll save that for another post…
For now – let’s focus on what happened last week.
To be clear – this was not a criminal trial. Vianna was not being brought to trial by the State of Idaho. She was being sued by one of her former students for selling her something that did NOT work. Namely – Theta Healing.
During the trial, testimonies were heard from several people associated with Theta Healing, and expert witnesses (see: trained and licensed Medical Doctors) were called to judge its validity. Vianna herself even took the stand to attempt to defend Theta Healing and herself. All of this took place over the course of 4 days and in front of a jury, mutually chosen by the attorneys for both parties.
In the end, the jury chose UNANIMOUSLY in favor of the student and that Vianna and Theta Healing were guilty of FRAUD. Vianna and Co. will be forced to pay damages of an, as of now, undisclosed amount.
Please read that sentence again: …the Jury chose UNANIMOUSLY.
These results are on public record. And as more details become available, we will publish them here.
Vianna and Co. were unable to prove that Theta Healing works.
Their only line of defense was to say “I’ve seen it work. I know it works. It worked for me”. Unfortunately (for Vianna) this is not proof. This will never be proof. Because Theta Healing will never be proven to work.
Because it doesn’t.
If you are someone who is investigating Theta Healing to see if it is something you want to invest time and money into – please take into consideration that it has been viewed as a fraud by the Court System of Idaho.
If you are someone who has invested money into Theta Healing in the past and feel that you were sold a false good and that you were defrauded of your money – consider the outcome of this case, and consider possible litigation.
If you are a Theta Healing practitioner – please ask yourself why you continue to support and spread the fraud?
If you are a Vianna supporter / defender – we ask you: How would YOU defend Theta Healing if you were brought to trial? (feel free to register your defense here in the comment section)
If you are law enforcement, the FBI, or a News Media organization – please look deeper into Theta Healing. This fraud is global, and countless lives have been adversely effected by it.
More to come…
Truth will out.
