Tom Benson’s daughter wants probate battle back in county court

U.S. District Judge David Ezra set a court date of May 21 to hear whether the fight over Tom Benson’s estate will remain in federal court or will be shifted back to a San Antonio probate court, the Times-Picayune reported on April 14.

The order was in light of a petition filed by Renee Benson, the daughter of the multi-billionaire sports teams owner, to move the case back to Bexar county probate court. Tom Benson’s lawyers initially moved the case out of the probate court and wanted it to stay in federal court.

Earlier this year, Tom Benson announced he was changing successors to his sports empire from his daughter and her two children, to his wife of 10 years, Gayle Benson. Renee Benson responded by filing petitions declaring her father incapable of running the family’s fortune.
