King family court drama seeks positive resolution

Maria Saporta

By ROSE SCOTT & MARIA SAPORTA >> Original Story

A lawsuit filed by the Estate of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. against The King Center for Nonviolent Social Change over the licensing agreement and intellectual property of Dr. King has been dropped.

The lawsuit pitted the King’s two sons, Martin King III and Dexter, against their sister, Rev. Bernice King, who heads the King Center.

Now, Martin King is reportedly seeking a resolution and opposes moving forward with this case.

Long-time Atlanta journalist and King family friend Maria Saporta talked with WABE’s Rose Scott on the midday program, “A Closer Look with Rose Scott and Denis O’Hayer,” about the recent developments.
