Nurse Geraldine Coffey is suing the estate of Huguette Clark for a share of her estimated $300 million fortune. Coffey claims the reclusive copper heiress promised to “provide for” Coffey in her will.
Coffey was paid $130,000 a year for 20 years to take care of Clark at night. The estate is countersuing Coffey for the return of gifts that Clark gave to her, including a $385,000 piece of real estate and $85,000 in school fees for her children.
