LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The Church of Scientology will appeal the dismissal of its libel suit against a lawyer, ordered after church founder L. Ron Hubbard's failure to appear for a deposition in the case, officials say.

U.S. District Judge Manuel Real dismissed the suit against Michael J. Flynn of Boston on Monday and the church's attorney, Thomas Peterson, immediately announced he would seek to have the ruling overturned.

The church's civil suit against Flynn had contended he defamed the organization in 1983 by allegedly accusing Scientology members of putting water in his airplane's gas tank in a sabotoge attempt.
