The suit names 10 defendants, including two schools and a church. Other parties include regional associations of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church: the Southern Union Conference Association, the Columbia Union Conference Association, the Mountain View Conference Association and the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference Association. Former directors at the now closed schools have also been named in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit involves the Miracle Meadows School in Salem, West Virginia and the Advent Home Learning Center in Calhoun, Tennessee. Both were affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church and were marketed as boarding schools for older children with behavior issues.

According to the Complaint, the two plaintiffs suffered extreme acts of abuse at the ages of 12 and 11, respectively. The lawsuit alleges sexual abuse and extreme physical, mental abuse. The schools face serious allegations involving multiple children, including sex abuse committed by fellow students as well as school employees, prolonged isolation, denial of food, denial of bathroom facilities, etc.
