A three-doctor panel has been selected to determine the mental fitness of Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson. The court has not released the names of the doctors, and the judge said that all of the information surrounding the exam would be confidential.
The judge previously stated that each side would select a physician for the exam, with the two sides jointly agreeing on a third doctor. The exam ordered is less invasive than the heirs had originally sought
The doctors are scheduled to examine Benson in mid-March and a report will be filed with the court shortly thereafter.
