NEW YORK (AP) _ A federal judge on Tuesday blocked a critical book about Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, finding that it violated the copyrights of his authorized biographer.

U.S. District Judge Louis L. Stanton said the book, which is still in manuscript form, could be published after infringing passages were deleted.

Melvin Wulf, lawyer for the book's publisher, said the decision was "a dagger in the heart of the First Amendment" and would not hold up on appeal.
