KASSEL, GERMANY KASSEL, Germany (AP) _ A federal court said Wednesday that the Church of Scientology, criticized in Germany over real-estate dealings, is no church but a business enterprise.

The Federal Labor Court said the church's claim to be a religious community was "only a pretext for pursuing business interests."

The court ruled on a complaint by a former Scientology worker who was seeking back wages.
