ALEXANDRIA, VA. ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) _ A federal judge has indicated she will likely award the church of Scientology $2,500 in its lawsuit against a former member who violated copyright law by posting sacred text on the Internet.

U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema ruled in January that Arnaldo Lerma, a longtime church critic, was liable for damages, but she told the church not to expect much money.

In her written ruling filed Oct. 4, Brinkema said she is likely to award the church a minimal $2,500 unless convinced otherwise.
