State High Court Stays Scientology Lawsuit

Associated Press

The California Supreme Court today granted a stay requested by the Church of Scientology in a lawsuit by a former church member.

Justice Allen E. Broussard granted the stay, which will remain in effect until the court can hear church arguments that religious beliefs cannot be tried. Lawyers for the church, accompanied to San Francisco by hundreds of demonstrators, on Monday asked the state Supreme Court to block the Los Angeles trial.
