The Battle Over Robin Williams’ Estate Continues

Robin_williams1-267x300I have previously discussed the ongoing dispute over the estate of late actor and comedian Robin Williams.  August 11th marked the one year anniversary of the tragic passing of Robin Williams.  The legal battle between his widow and his children over the actor’s estate continues on.  There is currently a dispute over the amount of money that will go into the trust that would provide for Susan Williams.  Robin Williams had carefully drafted a will in an attempt to avoid this sort of dispute, but the size of his estate and the number of belongings that the actor had made this legal battle unavoidable.  The actor’s family is continuing to struggle to work through the loss and to settle these legal issues.
