Battle over boxer Arturo Gatti’s estate continues

Posted on September 7th, 2011 No Comments

The wife and family of boxer Arturo Gatti, who was found dead at a Brazil resort in 2009, continue to battle over his estate.

Although Gatti’s wife, Amanda Rodrigues, was originally arrested under suspicion that she had a part in her husband’s death, she was later released when Brazilian police claimed that the boxer had actually taken his own life. Gatti’s family, manager, and close friend, however, do not believe he would kill himself.

According to a childhood friend, Rodrigues had a bad temper and had actually physically abused Gatti in the past. The friend testified that Gatti wanted to end things with his wife. However, the couple left their estates to each other in their wills.

Gatti’s family is wishing for his will to be annulled by the court, and his manager has hired a private investigator to look into his death. The private investigator believes that Gatti was murdered, and plans to make his findings public.

Louisiana woman’s will is being contested by Southeastern La. University

Posted on September 2nd, 2011 No Comments

The fundraising department of Southeastern Louisiana University has filed a lawsuit against a Louisiana woman’s estate.

Myra Darouse LaRue’s estate was divided among her sister and nieces when she died in October. According to the lawsuit, the SLU Foundation is contesting her will under allegations that the final will is not legal.

It is stated in the lawsuit that LaRue signed a will on March 6, 2009. However, her niece filed a new will after LaRue’s death on October 22nd, which left all of her assets to her sister and nieces. The contested will was said to have been signed by LaRue just 13 days before she died, while she was undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

All records pertaining to the lawsuit have been sealed by a state district judge.
