The Supreme Court Press mourns the passing of Pastor Schuller, who passed away before his case could be heard by the Supreme Court. Dr. Schuller lived an extraordinary life, and is an enduring inspiration to the world. The recognition of this Petition of the Month remains a part of the historic record. Although with his passing, this case will not be the vehicle to resolve the interpretation of 11 U.S.C. § 502(b)(7), it may serve to galvanize other retirees or near-retirees facing similar legal issues.
The Supreme Court Press “Petition of the Month”TM for January 2015 is Robert H. Schuller and Robert Harold Inc. v. Karen Naylor and Crystal Cathedral Ministries, Supreme Court Dkt. No. 14-945, a case arising out of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The petition was filed by attorneys Becky James and Jessica Rosen of the firm James & Stewart,, located in Pacific Palisades, California.
