LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A judge refused Thursday to grant a new trial or reduce a $30 million award against the Church of Scientology in the case of a former member who said the church ruined him financially and emotionally.

Superior Court Judge Ronald Swearinger denied both motions without comment.

Dozens of Scientologists filled the courtroom waiting for Swearinger's decision, while other group members outside carried banners and sang "We Shall Overcome."
