STUTTGART, GERMANY STUTTGART, Germany (AP) _ A court ruled Friday that a German bank can refuse to handle business accounts for the Church of Scientology.

At issue were accounts the group had at the postal bank, a common conduit for businesses and individuals to transfer funds throughout Germany. The banks are located in post offices.

District Court Judge Hans-Juergen Voigt ruled that, although everyone has a right to postal services, that did not apply to Postbank, which was changed in January 1995 from a public to a private credit institution.
