Schuller Family Loses Crystal Cathedral Court Case

A California judge has ruled against the Schuller family regarding their claims to millions of dollars relating to a breached contract with Crystal Cathedral Ministries.

According to the Orange County Register, U.S. Judge Robert Kwan of Los Angeles granted an estimated $615,000 to the Rev. Robert H. Schuller over issues pertaining to a breach of contract dispute leveled by the Schuller family against CCM.

While the amount given to the reverend behind the famous "Hour of Power" program may seem large, it is well below the several millions sought by the Schuller family, including $5 million for breach of contract.

Judge Kwan decided that the Schullers had failed to provide adequate evidence that they were owed the large sum of money from Crystal Cathedral Ministries. John Charles, chief executive officer of the Crystal Cathedral, said in an emailed statement to media that, "A long and difficult period in the history of the Crystal Cathedral is over."

"The ruling will enable the final creditors to be paid and give us the money we need to move on with our ministry, spreading a message of hope and love to the people of Orange County and, through the 'Hour of Power,' to the world," wrote Charles.

"The trial was painful for everyone involved, and our congregation is ready to move on. We love the Schullers and wish them well."
