Battle for Nate Dogg's Estate

WillsA year has passed and the estate of Nate Dogg is still engaged in a dispute between his children and his mother and widow. In dispute here is about $200,000 in real estate and much more in the royalities from his music catalog. The problems here have occurred because Nate Dogg did not leave a will instructing how his estate should be ministered. The lack of a will has given Calvin the opportunity to take control over the estate. Recently, Calvin filed some paperwork to have Holmes added as the co-administrator. Nate Dogg's children are opposed to having Nate Dogg's wife, Layota Calvin, and his mother, Ruth Holmes, control the estate. The children have tried to name an attorney to become the administrator but their attempt failed.One of his daughters, Auncrane Hale, stated that all his mother and widow want are the money from the estate. He claimed that if they control the estate, they will not give the children any money at all.
