Martin Luther King Jr. estate moves to end ownership fight over documents

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/20/2014 - 10:10

Belafonte laughs with a fellow audience member as they depart after a reception in WashingtonThe estate of Martin Luther King Jr. has moved to end a five-month dispute with U.S. singer and social activist Harry Belafonte over the ownership of documents that included an undelivered speech of the late civil rights leader. In an 18-page motion filed in New York federal court on Wednesday, lawyers for King's estate asked U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet to enforce a confidential settlement agreement that the estate's lawyers said was reached between Belafonte, the estate and King's youngest daughter, Bernice King. Belafonte and Bernice King "both agreed immediately to be bound by the terms of the parties' settlement agreement (over the documents) on February 4, 2014, but both have since refused to execute the written memorialization of that agreement," said Lisa Pearson, a lawyer for the King estate. Belafonte had sued King's estate in October and asked the New York court to declare him the owner of three documents associated with King and his widow, Coretta Scott King, and to bar Bernice King from trying to claim ownership of the items.
