Judge Garcia also put it bluntly, in a footnote to his May 14, 1997 ruling in favor of Ananda:

"Avarice has entered the equation. Since both parties espouse Yogananda's teachings, it seems self-defeating to spend countless hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorneys' fees enmeshed in a fight over property rights. Certainly time and money could be better spent working with instead of against each other, or working separately toward the same goal, to proclaim, as well as practice, the virtues and values of the religion."
You know there is something wrong when a judge in a courtroom has to explain to a spiritual/religious organization what the common sense and morally correct thing to do, is AND he is correct!
