Why Is James Brown’s Estate Still Unsettled? Ask the Lawyers
The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, passed away on Christmas Day, 2006. In 12 years, 12 separate lawsuits related to his estate were filed. The legal battles involve a range of issues, including: the validity of his Last Will and Testament, claims of illegal agreements regarding copyrights, and charitable desires spelled out in Mr. Brown’s I Feel Good Trust. The South Carolina attorney general even attempted to foster a settlement between the heirs, to no avail.
