Lawrence Levy, an attorney for Freedom For All in Religion, had charged in the 1987 suit that church officials tried to divert $100-million to foreign bank accounts. Levy's clients, six former Scientologists who said they represented as many as 400 others, said the church used personal information given in confidence for blackmail and extortion.

But on Friday Judge Cooperman dismissed the suit, ruling that the former church members failed to back up their allegations of money laundering and fraud, and "failed to identify the alleged communicators of confidential information."
