Sister Holzman was 89 when she collapsed in the courtroom, later to be pronounced dead.
They defended Hollister, who wanted to turn the 20,000 square-foot property into a boutique hotel with the nun's blessing, but has now been forced to declare bankruptcy.

Sister Catherine lived in the convent in Los Feliz with another nun for four decades and, in 2015, she'd tried to sell the property to restaurant owner Dana Hollister, who meant to turn the convent into a hotel. A legal battle involving Katy Perry and a group of nuns is like the premise for a Sick Sad World bit from Daria (shout out to my 90's boys out there) and has now at least in part been linked to one nun's death.
Perry had agreed to buy the Los Feliz property for $14.5m in 2015, however, two of the nuns who used to live there objected.

Katy Perry, meanwhile, is busily promoting ABC's reboot of the singing competition American Idol, on which she is a judge.
Before Friday's incident, Sisters Holzman and Rita Callanan spoke with Fox 11 about the ongoing case. The nun also implored Perry to "please stop" pursuing the purchase of the property.
In December 2017, a judge order Hollister to pay nearly $10 million in compensatory damages to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and Katy for attempting to interfere with the proposed sale.
