LOS ANGELES, July 19, 2012: The Central District Court of California, USA, led by Honorable Judge Stephen F. Wilson, has cleared Nithyananda Foundation of nine charges in a civil suit filed against the Foundation by a real-estate agent Popatlal Savla.

It may be noted that Nithyananda himself is neither a trustee nor partner nor in any way legally involved in this foundation. Also, he is neither a plaintiff, nor an accused, nor a witness nor otherwise involved in the current case, which is between a devotee and Savla. .

Of the ten charges made by Savla, one charge alone was found to be in favor of the plaintiff. However, the Foundation will be appealing this issue to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals forthwith. The Foundation also won the punitive damages phase of the trial.

Plaintiff's counself may lose licence:  Further,the Hon'ble Judge strongly adminonished the plaintiff's counsel for unpofessional conduct and warned him that sanctions would be brought against thim. In all probability, the counsel stands to lose his lience, which will mean that he can no longer defend this case.
