LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) _ A court Tuesday overturned a temporary injunction barring the sale of more than 320,000 copies of the Swiss editions of a Reader's Digest issue that contained material critical of the Church of Scientology.

Lawyers for Reader's Digest had challenged a Sept. 17 Lausanne court ruling that blocked Swiss distribution of the October issue's German-language and French-language versions.

Swiss subscribers were mailed the issue in defiance of the court order because it violated press freedom, said Hans Bosshard, the local managing editor.
