DENVER (AP) _ A judge has decided not to hold the Church of Scientology in contempt for failing to return computer equipment to two men who have been attacking the church on the Internet.

His order last month instructed that the materials be placed in custody of church lawyers, but U.S. marshals mistakenly returned them to the church, U.S. District Judge John Kane said Tuesday.

"For this reason, my order did not involve any First Amendment issue concerning the free exercise of religion nor can (the church) be held in contempt for violating that order," he wrote.
