Martin Luther King Jr.'s heirs settle dispute over Nobel Prize and Bible
Yahoo News - 6 months
The dispute began in January 2014, when Mr. King's two sons, Martin Luther King III and Dexter Scott King, voted 2-1 against their sister Bernice King to sell the items, which were in Bernice's possession, to an unnamed private buyer. The order turned the keys to the safe deposit box holding the Bible and medal over to Martin, the chairman of the estate.

MLK's Kids' Money Fight -- So What Else Is New?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
So the children of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. -- sons Martin Luther III, Dexter Scott, and their sister, Rev. Bernice King -- are squabbling because the boys want to sell a few items from their dad's "stuff," and sissy thinks that's a bad idea. When I first read about the dispute, I rolled my eyes back and sighed despondently, as though I had heard about the loss of something or someone that was near and dear to me. Then, after a couple moments of reflection, I said of this repugnant family rift, "So What!" I then pulled up the O'Jays singing their 1975 hit: For the love of money/People will steal from their mother/For the love of money, people will rob their own brother. There is nothing new about the King siblings' money grab, except, of course, it's happening in a famous family that lives in a glass house from which they have been chucking rocks with dollar signs on them since the days when most of the symbolism of the Civil Rights Movement were converted for financial gain. ...

Martin Luther King's children battling over estate
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
ATLANTA (AP) — Facing the latest in a string of legal battles with her brothers, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr. is seeking to portray herself as the true heir to her father's legacy. Bernice King has been outspoken this week in her opposition to what she said is a plan by her brothers, Dexter King and Martin Luther King III, to sell their father's Nobel Peace Prize medal and personal traveling Bible. "When the record books are written, let it be said that there was at least one heir who tried to further the legacy," she later added. In 2006, Sotheby's auctioned off 10,000 documents from their collection for $32 million, with the siblings receiving equal shares of the money. In response to repeated emails and calls, a lawyer for the King estate, which is controlled by Dexter and Martin III, sent a copy of the 1995 agreement among the siblings. "The fundamental bottom line here is that the King children have no clue what their father's legacy really means," the historian sai ...

Martin Luther King Jr.'s Estate Wants His Daughter, Bernice King, To Give Up Nobel Peace Prize
Huffington Post - about 3 years
ATLANTA (AP) — The estate of Martin Luther King Jr. is asking a judge to force the civil rights icon's daughter to relinquish her father's Nobel Peace Prize and "traveling" Bible. The complaint against Bernice King was filed Friday in an Atlanta court by her father's estate, which is controlled by her brothers, Martin Luther King III and Dexter King. The lawsuit says Martin Luther King Jr.'s heirs in 1995 assigned their rights to property inherited from the civil rights icon to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. The lawsuit says Bernice King has "secreted and sequestered" the medal and Bible in violation of that agreement. Bernice King says in a statement that her brothers want to sell the medal and Bible to a private buyer and that she opposes that. More from Adelle M. Banks at Religion News Service: (RNS) The daughter of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said Tuesday (Feb. 4) that she will fight her brothers’ attempts to sell their famous father’s Bible — used at Presid ...

Martin Luther King Jr.'s Children In Legal Dispute With Andrew Young
Huffington Post - about 3 years
NEW YORK (AP) — Long sharing the common goal of protecting the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King, the bond between the family of the slain civil rights leader and one of his former top aides, Andrew Young, has become threatened. At issue is a lawsuit initiated by King's sons. The points of legal contention are who has the rights to King's words and image, and how far do those rights extend. Young is facing the sons' ire over footage of King that shows up in a series produced by Young's foundation. Another of King's contemporaries also has legal issues with his children — actor Harry Belafonte, in a separate case, is debating ownership of some King documents. "The question is whose legacy is it? And I agree that it's their legacy, and that the copyright images of their father need to be protected by them, but I also feel that I'm doing the same thing for nothing and I will not give up my right to the legacy for their right to the legacy," Young said recently in an interview with Th ...
