Lawyers for victims appeared in court on Thursday as part of an effort to decide how the estate is to be distributed. Judge Gloria Sturman asked victim’s attorneys for help in determining the best method to regulate potential claims against the property. She is reportedly concerned that the sheer volume of claims against Paddock’s estate will result in more fees paid to attorneys than paid to victims.
