     The suit of the Church against David Mayo and the Advanced Ability
Center (AAC) has been rejected by the court and the appeal has been
turned down.  The church suit was thrown out because the church refused
to supply documents pertaining to the authorship of the NOTS (upper

Church has now informed the court that they will supply documents for

oraganized for only one purpose, which is to make money."  Daniels was
quoted in the June 11, 1991 issue of USA Today.  The Reverend Heber C.
Jentzsch said Judge Albert V. Bryan's decision would be appealed.
