The stay was denied late yesterday by associate Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, according to Natalie Hanlon-Leh, an attorney for Lawrence Wollersheim of Boulder. The church has accused Wollersheim, a 46-year-old former church member turned apostate, of violating a copyright and trade secrets(sic) by making church secrets available around the world on 48,000 computer bulletin boards. The church got a federal court order to seize Wollersheim's computer, documents and disks, and then sifted through the material, looking for secret church doctrines. After the search, a federal judge ordered the computer and disks returned. The church refused and appealed to the Supreme Court. ====end of story==== unclear language in the third paragraph is part of the original story, not a transcription typo. -- --------------------------------------------------------- *charles oriez, sp4* *Scamizdat, Unixer,, Fishman, Lerma, * *Leiby, Erlich,Klemesrud, Vega, Atack, Kim Baker, Berry,* *Leipold, Young, Ward,Armstrong, Jacobson, Greene, * *Whitfield, Behar, Kisser, Rogue Agent, Can, Capricorn, * *Ray Russ/Pruss, Damon Chetson, Coates, Abrahms, Caberta* *Carto, Cochran, Lawley - to screw up the sift search * * ---------------------------------------------------------
