LOS ANGELES -- Three persons who allegedly helped cult deprogrammer Ted Patrick abduct a Church of Scientology member have been dismissed as defendants in the woman's $30 million civil suit against Patrick.

U.S. District Court Judge William Byrne granted a defense motion Thursday seeking dismissal on grounds of insufficient evidence against the other three defendants in the alleged kidnapping.

Scientologist Paula Dain sued Patrick and the others, alleging they had violated her right to freedom of religion by kidnapping her Sept. 2, 1979, and holding her captive for 38 days while she was deprogrammed.
