The Rev. Robert H. Schuller, who propelled the Crystal Cathedral into one of the most recognized churches in the world, lost the bulk of his multi-million dollar claims against his former ministry in U.S. Bankruptcy Court Monday.
Judge Robert Kwan ruled that Schuller, his wife, daughter and son-in-law did not provide evidence to back most of their claims.

Robert H. Schuller and his wife, Arvella, filed a number of claims, including a $5 million claim for breach of contract and another for an unspecified amount for copyright infringements.

"This was a complete victory for the creditors and the church," said attorney Todd Ringstad, who represents the creditors.
With the ruling, "we have a thousand plus checks to write" to creditors that have been awaiting payment since the cathedral filed for bankruptcy in 2010, said Nanette Sanders, an attorney for the creditors.
