In new court filings, a company affiliated with the Church of Scientology that wants to build a substance abuse treatment center on Catoctin Mountain said the Frederick County Council voted against the site's application for historic designation because of religious animosity.

Social Betterment Properties International, a company acting as a real estate arm of the Church of Scientology, filed an application with Frederick County to have a property known as Trout Run added to the county's Register of Historic Places. A zoning loophole would have allowed a Narconon treatment center to operate there if the site was deemed historic.
