Settlement most probably will not stand the scrutiny of the court. Very truly said, Prabhu.
BUT, by that time we would be goggle eyed scrutinizing a bill close to $250,000. Maybe we can find a better way around. We cannot disclose now, but maybe we have. Let us see if Jayadvaita and Gopal Bhatta are told that plan by Krishna in the heart, of course to make the whole fight very interesting and nail biting SO that we can all depend on Krishna, or they get tied in shoelaces as they are habituated to. Time, Kala will tell.
Till that happens, the CA court recognizes that there is a BBT trust
holding copyrights of all of Srila Prabhupada's books. That there are
currently 4 trustees of that trust Jayadvaita, Svavasa, Naresvara and
Brahma Muhurta. This is from a stipulated order signed in 1998 by Judge
Shook. Neither Hansaduttan nor any of us can wish it away.
Till now no one WITH STANDING has brought in a claim to the contrary. So the order stands.
Only ISKCON, Inc. as the exclusive beneficiary of BBT can step in. The first step is to ask for accounts and reports. That we did. Next step is to request CA Superior court to order the trustees to show accounts and reports to the officers of ISKCON, Inc. That is what we need to do now.
And this is what they are trying to prevent tooth and nail. Get us out somehow. Whole of last month some goons sent by the "GBC" were trying to barge into the Freeport temple. They were finally trespassed out and shown the door by the local cops.
The next step after the accounts show will solve the whole problem. Now how do we go about doing that, only a handful and our lawyer team knows it. Let us leave it at that for now. Suffice to say that the trust is made for the beneficiary, trustees are kind of employees, or caretakers. They need to be working FOR the beneficiaries benefit! Otherwise....
Please join this effort by distributing each book praying for success from Lord Krishna in the heart. By hearing the sincere prayers of His Sankirtan devotees, Krishna will surely oblige. Yada yada hi dharmasya....
