TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ A judge has ruled that Scientology leader David Miscavige can be named as a defendant in a lawsuit over the death of a church member who spent 17 days in isolation at a church retreat.

Lisa McPherson, 36, died Dec. 5, 1995, as church staffers took her to see a Scientologist doctor. An autopsy found she died of a blood vessel blockage in her left lung caused by severe dehydration and bed rest.

Scientology officials said she had been taken to the retreat to recover from a mental breakdown and had been well cared for.
