WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court refused Monday to review the federal government's decision to strip the controversial Church of Scientology of California of its tax-exempt status from 1970 through 1972.

The justices, without comment, rejected the church's appeal of a ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The court, however, will consider a similar issue next term in connection with another case it has agreed to hear involving whether Scientologists may deduct from their taxable income money spent on spiritual awareness courses.
