The Church of Scientology filed a $416-million libel lawsuit Monday against Time magazine over a 1991 article Scientologists call a "hatchet job." The lawsuit charged Time's May 6 cover story, "The Cult of Greed," was "maliciously constructed from its inception to attempt to destroy the Scientology religion." In papers filed in Manhattan's federal court, the church said the article damaged its reputation and has hurt its ability to attract new members.
