Report: Preliminary Settlement Made In Sumner Redstone Case
April 7, 2016 at 8:47 AM (PT)
REUTERS reports, "Lawyers acting for SUMNER REDSTONE have reached a preliminary settlement with an ex-girlfriend over a lawsuit that challenged the 92-year-old media mogul's mental competency, a person familiar with the situation said on THURSDAY. The terms of the settlement will require that a local, neutral third party oversee the day-to-day care of REDSTONE, according to the source, who asked to remain anonymous because they are not permitted to speak to the media."
HERZER's case over her dismissal as REDSTONE's legal representative and removal from his estate plan is set for a MAY 6th trial, and the TIMES notes that the case might be "a spectacle that both sides most likely want to avoid." A settlement may allow some potentially embarrassing details about REDSTONE's private life to remain confidential.
