Church of Scientology sues Georgia city

The Associated Press/January 14, 2010

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.
