In a November 26 ruling, Judge Robert Kwan of the Los Angeles Bankruptcy Court denied the copyright infringement claims of Reverend Robert Schuller, the founder of Crystal Cathedral Ministries, over ownership of the “Hour of Power” television series.  The Court ruled, among other findings, that Reverend Schuller created the works as an employee of the Ministries and, that, therefore, the Ministries is their rightful owner.  The Court also denied the copyright claims of other Schuller family members.  The ruling, which also denied most of the family’s contract claim, paves the way for the Ministries’ emergence from the two-year old bankruptcy proceeding.
