LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Rev. Robert Schuller has lost a bid to get more than $5 million from his former ministry, a bankrupt religious empire than included worldwide broadcasts and Southern California's Crystal Cathedral.

The Orange County Register ( ) says Schuller and his family were awarded about $616,000 on Monday.

A bankruptcy judge says the Schullers failed to back most of their claims of copyright infringement and breach of contract.

Schuller and the others severed ties to Crystal Cathedral Ministries, which sold its landmark Garden Grove temple to the Catholic church. They'll have to stand in line with other creditors to receive a chunk of an estimated $17 million available from the ministry.

Schuller's daughter, Carol Schuller Milner, calls the judgment a "travesty" but says she's unsure if it will be appealed.
