COURT ACCEPTS CASE CHALLENGING CURB ON RENT SUBSIDIES IN PUBLIC HOUSING - 1992-11-17
In other business yesterday, justices ruled unanimously that the Church of Scientology may continue its suit challenging the government's power to demand tape recordings from the church containing lawyer-client conversations.
The dispute began with a 1984 investigation of the tax returns of L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology. The church said the tapes contained confidential conversations.
The court reinstated Church of Scientology of California v. United States, which had been dismissed by the 9th Circuit as moot because the government has already obtained the tapes.
