Santana sued over ‘calibration’

Ex-employee claims he was fired over level of ‘spiritual evolution’

SAN
RAFAEL, California (AP) — A former personal assistant to Carlos
Santana has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the veteran
rocker, claiming he was fired after his consciousness was calibrated
and determined to be too low.

Bruce Kuhlman, 59, charges that
Santana’s wife, Deborah, brought in a man known as “Dr. Dan” so
employees could grow closer to God and become better workers.

“In
Deborah’s view, the higher a person calibrated with Dr. Dan, the better
employee they were because they were more ‘spiritually evolved,’ ” the
lawsuit said.

The lawsuit, filed in Marin Superior Court, alleges
that “spiritual calibration” allowed a person to develop a deeper level
of consciousness.

Kuhlman is seeking monetary damages for lost wages, emotional distress and unpaid overtime, among other demands.

A
spokesman for the 58-year-old guitarist, whose albums include
“Supernatural,” and his wife said the couple wouldn’t comment on the
lawsuit but will fight the case.

Kuhlman had signed an employee
manual agreeing to arbitrate disputes, but Superior Court Judge John
Sutro said the case could proceed regardless. An October 12 court date
has been set.

You would sue over this?  Really?  Dude–isn’t this more a
matter of personal preference and why now?  It’s been at least 3-4
years since the last album that came out and was super big!  Dude,
I hope he LOSES!!!  At least, from this article I hope they
lose.  Maybe there’s more to it than an idiotic legal wrangle
laced with greed?
