In Berlin, a federal court has failed to reach a verdict on the legal status of a Scientology group in a case that has wider implications for the status of the Church of Scientology within Germany. The German government refused to recognise Scientology as a church believing it to be a potentially dangerous cult that exploits its members for financial gain.
