Battle Continues Over Harris Estate


As I have previously discussed, a battle for the estate of Julie Harris is currently underway.  Friends and family of Harris claim Francesca Rubino “wormed” her way into Harris’ life, took control of her medical and business affairs, and kept Harris away from her son, Peter Gurian.

Julie Harris’ former lawyer is now entering the fray.  Herbert Nass represented Harris for many years until he was abruptly dismissed.  He is asking that his objections to the actress’ will go to trial.  Nass claims Harris “was not of sound mind or memory” when she left a chunk of her fortune to Rubino.
