     BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) _ The founder of the Castlewood Treatment
Center for eating disorders is no longer leading the center in St.
Louis County, or its facility in California, following lawsuits by
former clients.

     The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1az2EPQ ) reports
that Mark Schwartz and his partner, Lori Galperin, stepped down
from daily operations in December, though the change wasn't
confirmed until Tuesday.

     Castlewood director Nancy Albus is now CEO.

     Four women have filed lawsuits since 2011 against Castlewood and
Schwartz alleging they were hypnotized into believing they were
members of satanic cults, and implanted with false memories of
sexual abuse. The center has denied the claims. Schwartz is
scheduled to give a deposition in July.
