From the Orange County Register:
The Rev. Robert H. Schuller filed an appeal to a judge’s ruling in a case that pits the well-known religious leader against the Crystal Cathedral Ministries he founded.
Schuller and his corporation, Robert Harold Inc., filed an appeal Tuesday to Judge Robert Kwan’s ruling last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
Schuller had originally filed claims for breach of contract, copyright infringement and intellectual-property rights.
Kwan ruled, among other things, that Schuller was an employee and that under an employment contract, he was limited to one year’s compensation. Kwan awarded Schuller $615,625, a fraction of the amount sought by Schuller and family members.
In a Nov. 26 ruling, the judge also rejected claims filed by Schuller’s wife, Arvella, as well as most of the claims submitted by daughter Carol Schuller Milner and her husband, Tim. Instead, Kwan awarded the Milners $77,615.
Milner said she and her husband are not appealing the judge’s ruling.
