Judge May Seal Probate Case of Harold Simmons

Harold-simmons_416x416

The widow of Harold Simmons is attempting to keep the Dallas billionaire’s will and related documents secret.

Dallas County Probate Judge Michael E. Miller heard arguments about the estate’s motion to seal and has said that his will in some form will be made public, but parts of the case will likely be kept secret to protect members of the Simmons family.  The estate’s lawyer described the will as a “treasure map for those who would attempt to benefit from the estate.”
