S. Shatananda was declared the Shankaracharya by the courts in 1953. It wasn't 
until he 
died AND S. Vishnudevananda died that a new lawsuit was brought. That one was 
successful at least partly becaause S. Vasudevananda was not a direct disciple 
Gurudev's, unlike S. Shatananda and S. Vishnudevananda and S. Swaroopananda.

The Shankaracharyas may not have seen S. Shantananda as the successor to 
Gurudev, but 
famous saints like Matanda Moi Ma received him, and her official biography 
mentions him 
by name to clarify that HE was the Shankaracharya of Jyotirmath that she met 

MMY didn't become famous until many years after the first court case, so your 
doesn't make much sense anyway.
