Benson Sanity Hearing Proceedings Begin Today
The fight is really between Benson's daughter and his third wife. One of them will inherit the teams and the Benson Fortune. A couple of weeks ago Benson announced he was leaving everything to his third wife Rita Benson LeBlanc. This naturally did not sit well with Benson's daughter Renee Benson and her children.
The hearing today will not be the final chapter of this book (sure to become a reality show ... or lifetime movie if anyone gets murdered.) According to WWL this is a preliminary hearing to decide if the judge should order a psychiatric evaluation of the New Orleans businessman.
