Fired Betty Ford Worker's Lawyer: BF Is Immoral!

12/22/2010 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The lawyer for the former Betty Ford Center staffer who is accusing Lindsay Lohan of criminal battery is lashing out at Betty Ford, claiming the Center demanded she conform to "the immoral and unethical requests of the Clinic."

Attorney Keith Davidson tells TMZ, Dawn Holland has hired him "to investigate employment and civil rights claims Ms. Holland has against the Betty Ford Clinic and others surrounding her recent unlawful termination."

Davidson bristles at Betty Ford's decision to fire his client, saying, "Ms. Holland was immediately targeted, unmercifully interrogated, intimidated and threatened with her livelihood unless she conformed to the immoral and unethical requests of the Clinic."'  Holland told TMZ officials at Betty Ford allegedly put pressure on her not to file a criminal complaint against Lindsay.

Davidson says, Betty Ford "was exerting every influence they had in attempting to cover up their own unlawful conduct."

Holland tells us she's a recovering addict who has been in rehab 8 times.  Davidson adds, "It's a shame that during this season of giving, the once esteemed BFC has become the proverbial Grinch by trashing one of their own."

No comment from Betty Ford.

Like I said many times before .... Betty Ford Center is the absolute worst. This just goes to show you it is a waste of time and money to go there for help.

Betty Ford used to have a good rep, but that is all gone now. What the hell are they doing hiring junkies like Holland? Why are clients/junkies allowed out late at night, and not punished when they sneak back over fences after curfew? That place is a joke and needs to be investigated and punished.

This is the best thing to ever happen to Ms. Holland. She probably doesn't make much at all per year and probably has trippled her salary already via selling pictures and telling her story and now she's really going to cash in. She will probably receive an out of court settlement. That's the way these things work.

Lindsay is a complete drama queen, but Dawn Holland seems pretty shady to me.

Anyone who would sell private patient data or divulge it to the media is a low life. Plus it is against the law (HIPAA) . . . so let's hope she gets arrested.

Not surprising, let's face it Rehab facilities are a business and they are in the business to make money... alot of famous people wind up at Betty Ford so the idea that they would extend special treatment and policy in order to keep the money flowing in from the wealthy clients is not a far stretch at all. Sorry but I still don't buy that Lindsy was out getting her hair done at 1AM and cried when she was yelled at and pushed. I can't wait to see the video though...hope it's released soon. Lindsy got caught trying to skirt the rules ...(AGAIN)... and now we have another story totally spinning things away from her being out after curfew and her having been at a bar... sounds all too familiar. She's not there to get better she's there to avoid jail, Betty Ford IS her sentence she doesn't just get to say 'ok I'm done now' and go out to a bar and break the rules.

The woman should be fired for breaking confidentiality rules and putting her hands on LL. It is obviously a shakedown. LL was within her rights as any court will see. I hope LL and her lawyers aggresssively pursue this. DH should never be in a job where she can weild her "power" over those seeking help.

Let's see.... Lilo wants a break for being 10 minutes late and maybe even for being under the influence of *whatever*.... And this "professional" thinks it's okay to take a check from TMZ, waive an arm cast around for the cameras, and talk to the cameras about what happened.... Okay, they both suck and need to go away.

I really want to see the security cam footage. That should get to the bottom of who's at fault. Neither of these women impress me as the "sweet and innocent one".
