The legal fight pitting Tom Benson vs. his daughter and her children over the future ownership of the New Orleans Saints, Pelicans and other businesses heads to a civil courtroom in New Orleans on Tuesday morning.
Judge Kern Reese is scheduled to hear oral arguments beginning at 9 a.m. on competing motions. One is from Benson arguing that a lawsuit from his relatives seeking to have him declared mentally unfit to make his own business decisions lacks the legal basis necessary to proceed. The other — from his estranged relatives — contends that Benson should undergo a psychiatric examination to determine his mental fitness.
The Advocate's Ramon Vargas will have live updates from the court room beginning at 9 a.m.
