What Is NXIVM? Civil Lawsuit Lawyer Neil Glazer Explains in Damning Detail in Amended Complaint

Vanguard [Keith Raniere] and Prefect [Nancy Salzman],

Attorney Neil Glazer has filed an amended complaint in the lawsuit against NXIVM and 13 of its leaders. He also pretty well damns the organization, painting a shocking picture of manipulation and abuse as bad or worse than the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of NY did in its criminal prosecution of Keith Raniere and his five co-defendants.

Glazer represents some 90 plaintiffs, all former NXIVM members, who allege serious crimes and civil torts against the self-help group founded by Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman. The suit is filed in US District Court for the Eastern District of NY and is before US District Court Judge Eric Ross Komitee, an appointee of Donald Trump.

The civil case has been suspended until the criminal proceedings against Keith Raniere and his five NXIVM codefendants are complete – something that draws nearer with only two defendants remaining to be sentenced.

The plaintiffs in the civil case include DOS “slave” women Sarah Edmondson, Jessica Joan, India Oxenberg, Souki, Nicole and a number of other Jane Does. It also includes former NXIVM members Mark Vicente, Anthony ‘Nippy’ Ames, Bonnie Piesse, Tabitha Chapman and Toni Natalie, plus others who have joined in the lawsuit. Many plaintiffs have sought to keep their identities anonymous, something which Judge Komitee will ultimately decide.

The defendants in the lawsuit are all named – first and last – and are the six convicted defendants, Keith Raniere, Nancy Salzman, Clare Bronfman, Allison Mack, Lauren Salzman and Kathy Russell. Also being sued are Sara Bronfman, the wealthiest of the defendants, Karen Unterreiner, Dr. Brandon Porter, Dr. Danielle Roberts, and Nicki Clyne

In addition, the lawsuit names NXIVM Corp., Executive Success Programs Inc, and First Principles, which may be owned in whole or in part by the federal government and Ethical Science Foundation, which was founded by Clare and Sara Bronfman.

The allegations are not entirely dissimilar to those for which the defendants were convicted.

They allege that the defendants in the civil suit conspired to operate, and operated  “a criminal Enterprise under the ‘NXIVM’ umbrella… and participated in a ‘Venture’ to commit sex trafficking, peonage, forced labor and human trafficking.”

It is alleged that NXIVM was “a Ponzi scheme [where] Defendants exerted power over the Plaintiffs; took their money; made it financially, physically and psychologically difficult, and in some cases impossible, to leave the coercive community; and systematically abused Plaintiffs physically and emotionally.”

Here is the first part of a series that details allegations of many torts and ethical breaches of NXIVM leaders.

It is a summary of the action, and is Glazer’s view of the self-help program with only a few minor copy edits to conform with the style of Frank Report.

Neil Glazer

By Neil Glazer

  1. Plaintiffs’ claims arise out of their involvement with NXIVM Corporation, an organization based in Albany, New York and founded by Defendants Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman.

2. NXIVM’s principal business is the sale of personal improvement and professional development training programs through Defendant Executive Success Programs, Inc. and other entities. However, NXIVM’s insidious reach extended far beyond just ESP, and it was far more than simply a personal improvement program.

3. Drawing from methods used in pyramid schemes and multilevel marketing, NXIVM induced students to recruit and form their own downstream sales organizations within NXIVM, so that the students might work their way up in the hierarchy, known as the “Stripe Path” (after the colored striped sashes members wore to indicate rank and recruitment achievements), to a level where they could earn commissions and build careers and income for themselves.

Nancy Salzman, with Mark Vicente, Alex Betancourt, Karen Unterreiner, Clare Bronfman, Lauren Salzman and Emiliano Salinas – all wearing their colored sashes indicating their rank on the stripe path.

4. Few students ever qualified for commissions, because the Defendants continually manipulated the program requirements, expanded the required curriculum, and graded most of the students as failures who needed to work harder and take more of NXIVM’s expensive courses.

Out of the more than 16,000 people who took NXIVM’s courses, fewer than 100 ever earned any income from NXIVM’s businesses, and fewer than 25 received substantial earnings within NXIVM.

Most of the earnings were received by members of a small group of high-ranking individuals collectively known within the organization as the “Inner Circle.”

The “Inner Circle” of NXIVM/ESP

5. Raniere claimed to be the conceptual creator of NXIVM’s programs, and the various related legal entities themselves. Defendants promoted NXIVM’s programs in part by representing that Raniere was the world’s smartest man, who allegedly had an IQ of 240 and was a child prodigy, speaking in complete sentences at age one, mastering college level mathematics in two days at age eleven, winning championship judo and track tournaments, and graduating college with three degrees. None of this was true.

Was Keith Raniere a child prodigy?

6. Before forming ESP with Nancy Salzman, Raniere ran another pyramid scheme called Consumers Buyline Inc. (“CBI”) that was investigated by 25 state attorneys general and eventually shut down by New York’s Attorney General Robert Abrams on September 3, 1996.

Pursuant to the consent decree entered in that case, Raniere was permanently prohibited from “promoting, offering or granting participation in a chain distributor scheme in the State of New York.”

Keith Ramnere showing how members could make a fortune selling membership to CBI and possibly learn a little something about selecting sweaters.

Two years later he was back at it with ESP.

Rational Inquiry

7. NXIVM’s programs were based upon a system Raniere and Nancy Salzman labeled Rational Inquiry. Defendants claimed this was a patent-pending technology for changing behavior and thinking. They claimed that it was based in science and could thus be replicated, producing empirically measurable results. Defendants also claimed that NXIVM’s system or “tech” could cure medical conditions, including Tourette’s Syndrome and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. None of this was true.

8. Rational Inquiry had two primary components:

(1) a self-esteem eroding curriculum designed to break down students’ resistance to Raniere’s and Nancy Salzman’s radical reframing of ethics, morality, and gender roles and relations, among other things, and

(2) an inherently dangerous form of psychotherapy called “Exploration of Meaning” (“EM”), which was administered by so-called EM Practitioners (“EMPs”), all of whom were unqualified to practice psychoanalysis, psychology or mental health counseling.

Nancy Salzman made many videos promoting NXIVM

Nancy Salzman, the principal therapist and head of this individual therapy branch of NXIVM, held a nursing license and claimed to have a background as a psychiatric nurse. In fact, she worked as a nurse for only one year in a general practice and did not have a license to practice psychotherapy.

9. Defendants intended, knew, or deliberately disregarded the fact that the EM exposed its subjects to a high risk of injury, because over time it produced disturbing alterations in the subjects’ thinking, behavior, and emotional experience.

10. The longer someone was immersed in this system, the more likely it became that they would suffer moderate-to-severe psychological and emotional injuries, including posttraumatic stress disorder and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. Many of the Plaintiffs in this action were injured in this way and still struggle with the effects of their time in NXIVM and exposure to Defendants’ programs.

  • These people who are partaking in this lawsuit are parasites. All of them. They are professional victms. Anyone who uses any critical thinking would see the obvious.

  • “8. Rational Inquiry had two primary components:

    I’m trying to collect information on the procedures of Rational Inquiry. Are there any written materials that an EMP would study to become an EMP? Can someone provide the link for me or email them to me at AlanzosBlog@gmail.com?

    These claims of “a self-esteem eroding curriculum designed to break down students’ resistance” and “an inherently dangerous form of psychotherapy called “Exploration of Meaning”” are quite something.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Neil prove these claims in court. A lot of people say that Scientology auditing procedures are inherently dangerous too but no one’s ever proven it like Neil’s going to for NXIVM!!

    Under the rules of evidence!!

    In a court of law!!

    Woo-hoo!

    It’s a rhetorical wet dream!

    Alanzo

    • You seem a little unhinged and somewhat disingenuous to me. Also, you are the one offering nothing but rhetoric, low-grade rhetoric at that.

      • There’s nothing more exciting than a money-grubbing attorney chasing a big pay day.

        It’s when they start using terms like “inherently dangerous” to try to spook everyone into handing over the cash to him.

        It’s all very respectable, of course.

        Rhetorically speaking, it’s like a cross between an Elmer Gantry Big Tent Hootenany and a Pro-Wrestling Championship/Monster truck rally.

        I’m very excited.

        Alanzo

        • My guess is you’re bitter about attorneys couldn’t find one who would take on whatever claims you wanted to press against Scientology. If that’s not the case, then you’re just an ignorant ass that doesn’t understand the first thing about mass tort litigation.

          • K.R. Claviger-

            I am betting the various [money grubbing] tort attorneys, Alonzo went to, informed he had no damages and, therefore, no case.

            …Then Alonzo went to contract attorneys and was told, once again, he had no case.

            Poor, poor Alonzo……

            Not only does he not have a case, he has no class.

        • Alanzo.

          Be totally honest. Please.

          Do you have any friends?

          In real life. Not on the phone. Not on the internet. People that you see regularly, in person.

          Do you have any friends in real life?

          I hope so. Sincerely. I do.

  • Frank,

    Jonnie and Kim would like to get back in touch with you through me, they have had a year from “H…”.

    Kim continues to push on and investigate Kris’ death – but is at a loss for words. Due to health issues, she has had to slow way down and do other things.

    Please respond to me if you will reconsider allowing them to contact you through me.

    Thanks, Grapevine

  • In that pyramid scheme photo, Keith is wearing both the pedophile sweater AND the serial killer glasses.

    Haven’t seen that double whammy since Dahmer.

  • Frank,

    How far from being ready to make a “reveal” on the Kristin Snyder case are you? Why won’t you at least tell us a little bit of what you know?
    I am betting that the family would like to have a little of the knowledge that you have on this deal. They have now entered their 18th year of horror on this deal, NO arrests, other than Keith, maybe Salzman knows something, but it is as though Kris will NEVER be given a proper “burial “. Do you think it will ever happen? At least for Jonnie and Kim?

    I know Kim thinks “she knows” what happened – and who is involved, but NO one has listened, and to date, she is still walking through a “nightmare” without her ONLY sister. She will remain ALONE when her ONLY child goes off to college, and her parents will NO longer be alive. Is this

    NOT enough to have her go through?

    There has NEVER been Part 2 of the “LOST women” with Jonnie and Kim in it,

    Frank, we are asking you, to give us, just a small piece of the pie and just what YOU know happened to Kris.

    Might YOU know where remains are for Kris? Will we ever know? Just to give the family closure. They deserve this as do us “the readers”. Just a little peek, Frank, please?

    Thanks, The Grapevine

    • I am about a month away on revealing more on the fate of Kristin Snyder. I can say little right now except that the likelihood of her being alive is next to zero. I would call it zero except the remains have not been found and that something atrocious happened to her, terribly atrocious, and several people were utterly responsible for it.

      Since I still have witnesses to interview I will have to leave it at that — for the moment.

  • There was a reason that I repeatedly mentioned Glazer’s law suit and linked people to his law firm’s web site.
    I was almost like a broken record on the subject.

    If anyone or anything destroys NXIVM, it will be Glazer’s civil RICO suit.

    I hope I contributed in a small way to the quest for justice.

  • The Times They Are a-Changin’: Lawsuit Accuses Bob Dylan Of Raping 12-Year-Old Girl In 1965
    Woman claims superstar musician groomed, drugged and molested her

    BOB DYLAN
    SUED FOR SEXUAL ABUSE …
    You Groomed Me For Sex!!!
    https://www.tmz.com/2021/08/16/bob-dylan-sued-sexual-abuse-assault-groomed-sex-12-year-old-girl-1965/

    • Maybe, maybe not—-

      Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin is skeptical about the allegations. His most recent book, “The Double Life Of Bob Dylan: A Restless, Hungry Feeling (1941-1966),” covers the period when the abuse allegedly happened in considerable detail.

      Heylin said he can’t figure out when any meetings between Dylan and the accuser could have taken place.

      “It’s not possible. Dylan was touring England during that time, and was in Los Angeles for two of those weeks, plus a day or two at Woodstock,” in upstate New York. “The tour was 10 days, but Bob flew into London on April 26 and arrived back in New York on June 3.”

      “If Dylan was in New York in mid-April, it was for no more than a day or two,” he added. “Woodstock was where he spent most of his time when not touring. And if he was in NYC, he invariably stayed at his manager’s apartment in Gramercy, not the Chelsea.”

      Heylin also said the singer didn’t start living at the Chelsea Hotel until autumn of that year.

  • Frank
    Are you continuing your investigation into the Snyder young woman’s death? Are there any new developments? Any at all? We never hear from this investigation any more? It’s as if this case just died and went away. Are you still pursuing this case or not? What has happened ? Are you or aren’t you doing anything on this case anymore?

    Kris needs to be found for her family and for the readers. There are SO many unanswered questions – and SO many loopholes in stories.

    Do you hear from the Snyders or from Kim anymore? Where has she gone? What is she doing these days?

    Please give us an update if you can.

    Grapevine

    • The investigation into the missing and presumed deceased Kristin Snyder is far from over. I am not ready to make an update just yet.

      • Frank, I believe that the Snyder case might relate to Glazer’s lawsuit in that through the unauthorized practice of psychotherapy, Kristin Snyder was pushed into suicide.
        At least one of the Jane Does reported having thoughts of suicide after taking NXIVM courses.

  • NXIVM is sexually predatory, grifting parasite. That’s about it.

    The women who were not stalked by VanTurd, consider yourself lucky, and the ones who were, but were somehow saved by someone — a family member or a friend — then consider yourselves even luckier.

  • The most important item in this article is the sweater photo in which KR has drawn a pyramid on his easel. He literally has drawn a line at the top across the top of his pyramid scheme and then put another layer above it which perfectly decsribes the fact that only a few made any money out of it.

  • NXIVM is a “cult”- call it what it is. The families and victims have been through enough and drug through the mud enough to know – that it is Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman’s way of making money – and ruining people’s lives – like they have done for many years.

    The families and victims have been accused of “false crimes” and have had their lives turned upside down and inside out – but have gone on – picked up the pieces and walked on – but are still “grieving” and still trying to put their lives back in order.

    Those that have NOT lost loved ones in this process are very fortunate< Those that have lost - and are having to “defend” - their loved ones, as we still are, will forever be changed. Those that are still having to walk on without a “body” - and without any “closure” - will never have peace or understanding of what happened to their loved one. Imagine 18 years of horror - NO closure. Can you? NO- NXIVM is a “cult” - call it what it is. It is a pyramid scheme gone wrong - and murders victims without reason. Call it is what it is. Be honest and stop asking the question of what it is. It is a “cult”-!!!!!!! If you can find it in your heart, imagine what the victims are going through. Stop dragging them through HELL!!!!!!!!

  • “ …possibly learn a little something about selecting sweaters”
    LOL!

    Those Nxivm criminals who got off with little or no prison time can now look forward to many years of legal woes. Ironic, given how they formerly enjoyed the benefits of a corrupt organization that harassed the innocent by means of baseless lawsuits.

    Payback truly is a bitch.

    Somebody like Lauren Salzman better stick to her low-wage “career” as dog groomer. Because when the defendants lose this civil case they will owe the plaintiffs a shitload of money, a debt they’ll never be clear of.

    “Executive Success” indeed.

  • What I notice is that Danielle Padilla Bergeron, Rosa Laura Junco, Loreta J. Garza, and Monica Duran are no longer listed as defendants in the first amended complaint. Does that mean they are no longer among the defendants?

    There is so much to be said about the strength of women.
    I am lucky enough to come from strong stock as my friend likes to remind my mother and myself when she refers to my grandmother, Elizabeth.

  • I am no lawyer, so my understanding of the legal process is very basic, but I suspect that the lawsuit casts a wide net to maximize both the chances of a judgment in favor of the plaintiffs and the financial settlement. A civil case has a lower burden of proof than a criminal case, so “probably” is going to be sufficient. Yes, this means posting pro-DOS statements on your website can cost you. I suspect that most of the defendants are broke, or close to being broke, or will be very soon. The lawyers representing the plaintiffs are not interested in them.

    This means that as far as money goes, the targets are Clare and Sara Bronfman. The lawyers for the plaintiffs will hope for a judgment that renders the defendants joint and severally liable. This would allow payment to be collected from the Bronfmans. This is such a tangled mess that such a judgment is certainly possible. This does have a positive aspect for the other defendants: they cannot be sued again for the same claims.

  • How about how nxivm practiced a form of mental health EMs without a proper license or experience? What did Lauren Salzman and Michelle Myers do to be licensed? Was Nancy Salzman Loshin a LSCW? No….so they did mental health without permission.

  • See if Nancy’s sister, Carole Kass, has the money. And how did Michelle Myers get off so easy (no pun intended)? Nancy’s parents were also members of nxivm. Where does Carole’s husband Steve travel? Same cities as nxivm ppl?

  • Manipulating others by diminishing their self esteem in the name of ethics is as vilely hypocritical as one can get.

    Fake Nurse Sleazeman and VanFraud were requited with the Divine humiliation they deserved.

  • I think it’s a slam dunk. The burden of proof for this case is a mix of Clear and Convincing evidence and Preponderance of the evidence.

    At least some defendants plead or were found guilty under the higher standard, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.

    I wish I could be a fly on the wall at the depositions!

  • This will be a very interesting case to see unfold, assuming it actually reaches the point of being contested beyond paperwork.

    The plaintiffs in the case are not exactly shining examples of virtue and many participated in the same behavior they suing against. That is going to be excellent cross examination fodder for the defendants. The rules of a civil case are different than a criminal in a few ways. Probably be a story on that down the line.

    Differences are enough that it means that the defendant’s’ lawyers can be much more ruthless in how they handle the plaintiffs when they take the stand. Hard for a jury to decide who to reward if they think everyone involved is culpable in some form or fashion. And make no mistake, with few exceptions, none of those involved are innocent. Not being chosen to get prosecuted doesn’t absolve them of their sins of participation. Another defense option is simply lay the blame entirely on Keith and Nancy. Allison Mack, et all, can in effect co-opt the plaintiffs case as theirs too and say those 2 victimized us as much as them.

    To Nicki Clyne (assuming she reads this site):
    You chose to be be the public face of DOS’ defense right now. I strongly advise you seek out a lawyer ASAP. The words and statements you have posted on social media, that website of yours, the podcasts interviews, etc. can and will be used against you in this civil suit. You are doing yourself no favors right now with your pro-Keith campaign. You may also think “I can just avoid this by returning to Canada” and you would be wrong. The national agreements with your country is such that a judgement is enforceable there. You don’t have to believe me on any of this, its why I strongly recommend you get a lawyer ASAP.

    • Nicki reads the Frank Report. Your words are wise. But Nicki listens to Keith.

      The only reason a defendant would be as reckless as Nicki is because they know that they stand to lose nothing.

      Clare will.

      And no nxian has ever cared about parting Clare from her money.

      Psychologically, a judgement against Nicki will bother her. Financially, it will be a Bronfman problem.

      How does Nicki afford to live in New York and fly around visiting prisons when she doesn’t work? And has to beg people to spend 5 bucks a month to access information from her?

      Nicki has spent countless hours on Twitter deriding women as makers of “false accusations” against innocent men.

      But Nicki herself demanded that her slave make really damming and criminal accusations against the men in her life.

      DOS itself was a false accusations against men factory.

      Keith probably wanted to set up DOS that way. Because then if a woman came forward at any point against Keith – the loyalists could pull out the blackmail as proof of the woman having a “history of making false accusations”.

      These are not good people. They can’t be reasoned with and are terrorists and true believers on a mission.

      Lauren stated it clearly in court. Upon Keith’s arrest at gunpoint, “Save Keith” was her only thought. Protect him. With her own life. And that is Keith’s main drive, as well. Keith. At all costs. Keith. Always and forever.

      They made a lifetime vow. To Keith.

      • –Because then if a woman came forward at any point against Keith – the loyalists could pull out the blackmail as proof of the woman having a “history of making false accusations”.

        This once again proves just how utterly morally reprehensible and idiotic they are. We want you to come up with any bad stuff you’ve done in the past, and if it’s not bad enough, just make up something to make it look bad enough. But all in the name of ethics, empowerment and character growth, of course. Don’t you want to become “bad-ass” women? Provide us with this “collateral”, which is just like a home loan because we call it the word, and as long as you keep your word — a lifetime vow based on deception and lies — we won’t release it. But it’s not blackmail! Because, if you break your word, which is based on lies, and tell the truth about us, we can use the lies we told you to make against yourself as the “truth” so that no one will believe you.

        Grifters and morons galore, starting with the massive grifter at the top.
