The old CAN had appealed the jury award, but lawyers say that before a ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Scott sold the rights to the judgment to a California man named Gerald Beeny for about $25,000.

Who's Beeny? "Someone who believes in religious liberty," Moxon says.

Beeny would be the beneficiary of yesterday's ruling, but the old CAN "does not have the ability to function," Lawrence said, so whether money is available to pay the award is not clear.
