BONN, Germany (AP) _ Chancellor Helmut Kohl's ruling party did not violate the rights of three Scientology members by kicking them out of the party, a state court ruled today.

The three sued in December, arguing their constitutional guarantees of free speech and religion had been violated.

But a state court in Bonn ruled that Scientology principles do not conform with those of the Christian Democrats, and Kohl's party therefore had the right to remove them.
