Atlanta - A federal judge may soon decide the fate of the Church of Scientology's bid to turn a building in an Atlanta suburb into the group's Georgia headquarters.
The Church of Scientology filed a federal lawsuit Thursday claiming that Sandy Springs discriminated against the religious group. The lawsuit comes a month after the city council voted to allow the church to move to the office building, but rejected its bid to add a fourth floor to the building.
The lawsuit asks a federal judge to reject the building's zoning limits. It also seeks lawyers fees.
The Los Angeles-based Church of Scientology is hoping to move its state headquarters from Dunwoody to Sandy Springs.
