Short form: in 2007, Hazle was arrested for meth possession and sentence to rehab. but the only rehab that was available was one of those worthless faith-based things that’re no better than quitting cold turkey. Since Hazle was an atheist, he didn’t want to be involved, but he was made to go. So he was “disruptive, though in a congenial way, to the staff as well as other students” and “sort of passive-aggressive.” As a result he was kicked out and sent to jail for three months.
And now his lawsuit has netted him just shy of $2,000,000.
