      In a libel lawsuit, the Church of Scientology failed to show actual malice by a
      writer for Time magazine, which published an exposé of the organization in 1991,
      the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has held.

      The appeals court, in a suit filed over the Time cover story ''Scientology: The
      Cult of Greed,'' also said that no reasonable jury could find that reporter
      Richard Behar published allegations about a stock scam and murder-suicide
      involving members of the church ''with purposeful avoidance of the truth.''

      The Scientology organization has issued a statement about this case. I
      responded to that statement in a message posted to the AR-talk mailing list.
      That response, which provides background to the above news item, is now posted
      at the Apologetics Index website:

      http://www.gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex/s04h01.html

      It includes links to the original TIME story and other documentation.
