Higher Balance Institute Forced to File Suit to Defend Itself
Date:4/16/2008

After months of being the victim of continuous false and harmful statements, grass-roots meditation company, Higher Balance, files suit to defend itself. After failed attempts at seeking a peaceful resolution they seek to find a positive. The silver lining? Recovered damages gained given

to charity.

PORTLAND, Ore., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- After months of continuous false and harmful statements widely broadcast across the Internet, Higher Balance Institute, a Portland-based company providing tools for meditation, relaxation and spiritual development, has been forced to file suit to defend itself. Claiming 4.47 million in damages, the litigation comes after our failed attempts at a peaceful resolution.

We understand some of you may have questions about Higher Balance being involved in pending litigation against Laura Knight-Jadczyk, SOTT and Quantum Future Group. We have been advised that due to the nature of the proceedings we should not comment or otherwise discuss the situation in any detail, and for the time being we must follow that advice. We believe it is extremely important, however, to communicate certain points.

First and foremost, we believe very strongly in and cherish freedom of speech. With that freedom, however, comes powerful responsibility, which is why there are laws such as libel and slander. Those laws are designed and intended to provide protection against being harmed by false statements and accusations, and unfortunately Higher Balance finds itself in need of that kind of protection. Certain individuals through certain entities have made and continue making and widely disseminating patently false and harmful statements about Higher Balance. We sought a peaceful and amicable resolution, asking only for an end to the false and harmful statements. Unfortunately, our request was ignored and we were forced to take legal action, which is the only mechanism available to us to defend ourselves.

In accord with the mission and values of Higher Balance, we remain hopeful that we are able to resolve this in a manner that turns something negative into something positive. Guided by that mission, even though Higher Balance has been greatly harmed, any monetary compensation we recover as part of the lawsuit, beyond what is necessary to cover our legal fees, will be donated to the International Rescue Committee, which provides emergency relief to refugees and people affected by crises around the world.
