WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Church of Scientology has convinced a federal judge to allow its multimillion-dollar breach-of-contract suit against public relations giant Hill & Knowlton Inc. and others to go to trial here this summer.

U.S. District Judge Stanley Sporkin rejected Hill & Knowlton's request to dismiss the case, saying a jury should decide whether the company acted improperly.

Scientology officials claim the company broke the law when it canceled its contract with the church in May 1991 because of pressure from Eli Lilly and Co., manufacturer of the antidepressant drug Prozac.
