NEW YORK -- A federal judge Tuesday blocked publication of an unauthorized, critical biography of the late L. Ron Hubbard, the controversial author and founder of the Church of Scientology unless certain copyright-protected passages are deleted.

U.S District Court Judge Louis Stanton granted both preliminary and permanent injunctions in favor of New Era Publications International, a Danish corporation related to the church, which is the exclusive licensee of Hubbard's works.

New Era was authorized to publish a biography of Hubbard, who died in 1986, that will draw on his published and unpublished writings, the judge said.
