Ernie Banks Estate Battle Intensifies

Ernie_Banks_cardAs I have previously discussed, a dispute over the treatment of the remains of the late Baseball Hall-of-Famer Ernie Banks has arisen between his family and his caretaker Regina Rice. The battle over whether to have Banks' remains cremated has turned into a full will dispute, with Banks' twin sons alleging that Rice manipulated Banks' into changing his will to cut out his wife and children and give Rice power of attorney and all of his possessions. Banks' remains have not been cremated, but the location of his remains is currently uncertain.

See Associated Press, Suitability of Banks' Caretaker Faulted, ESPN Chicago, Feb. 16, 2015.
