LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard failed to appear in court Wednesday in his church's defamation suit, prompting defense attorneys to say they will seek dismissal.

"We will ask that the lawsuit be dismissed because Mr. Hubbard did not show," said Jeffrey A. Tidus, attorney for Michael J. Flynn, a Boston lawyer being sued by the church.

The suit contends Flynn, a longtime litigant against the church, defamed the organization in June 1983 by allegedly accusing Scientology members of putting water in the gas tank of an airplane he was flying in 1979.
