As I have previously blogged, after Sherman Hemsley died, a man came forth claiming to be Hemsley's brother. However, the executor that Hemsley named in his will says that she never heard Hemsley talk about family.
Hemsley's alleged family is claiming that the will is suspicious because it was made only a month before Hemsley died and the signature looks like it was traced.
In order to sort out the conflicting claims, the judge has ordered a DNA test on Hemsley's alleged brother and on Hemsley. The family has until October 15 to do the DNA test. The next hearing is scheduled for October 31.
See Judge Orders DNA Test From Hemsley's Relatives in Will Battle, 9HD, Sept. 24, 2012.
