In 1986 after she escaped, she started a lawsuit ...
The court case lists among many other things, a list of products Kate developed for Yogi Bhajan for which she was never paid.
Case 1 - Sunshine
Kate developed formulas for hair and skin care products.
YB promised her 10% ownership of the business, and a seat on the board of directors if she would turn over the formulas.
She consulted the 3HO chancellor to make sure that she would be protected financially. He confirmed all was fine.
None of the promises were kept.
She complained and via the chancellery. They gave her documents that declared she would receive some interest. Those documents were false which she did not know.
Case 2 – Candy bar recipes
YB asked Kate to research and develop candy bar recipes. She was promised a salary, reimbursement for her costs, a percentage of ownership in the Golden Temple Bakery and a royalty fee for each candy bar sold.
In reality she received 300 USD a month for travel expenses, that’s all.
Case 3 - Cookie recipes
If her recipes would be successful she would become a partner of the company and receive a percentage of the profits. ‘Lemon Up, Ginger Zam, Paradise Pistachio and Rasin Oats’, were developed, produced and sold by Nanak Cookie Company.
She received nothing for the 7 months she worked on this.
