CHASKA, Minn.– A Minnesota judge says he’ll take a request that Prince’s six siblings be declared his lawful successors under advisement.
Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide stated in January he wouldn’t declare the successors of the late rock superstar until appeals run their course for others whose claims of heirship have been rejected.
But legal representatives for Prince’s sibling and 5 half-siblings do not want to wait, stating any more delays will increase costs to the estate and hamper its effective administration. Eide stated Wednesday he’ll take their demand under advisement.
Prince left no known will when he died of an accidental pain reliever overdose in April 2016.
Attorneys for those who have been turned down as beneficiaries say their interests would be damaged if the district court doesn’t wait out the appeals procedure.
