The Tom Benson estate saga entered a new phase Tuesday when his daughter and granddaughter testified in court concerning his mental state. The two stated they were not testifying against Mr. Benson, rather, they were acting to protect him from those looking to exploit his mental state. The crux of the suit is that the current wife of Mr. Benson, along with executives from his pro sport teams, are looking to force out the family from positions of leadership. At this time, it is unknown if Mr. Benson will testify in his own defense.
