ATLANTA – A judge in Atlanta is set to hear arguments in a dispute over who owns the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1964 Nobel Peace Prize medal and traveling Bible.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday on requests from each side to rule in their favor. The dispute has effectively pitted King's two sons against his daughter.
King's estate, which is controlled by his sons, last year asked a judge to order King's daughter to surrender the items. In a board of directors meeting last year, Martin Luther King III and Dexter Scott King voted 2-1 against Bernice King to sell the two artifacts to a private buyer.
Bernice opposes any sale, and her lawyers have argued the items aren't the estate's to sell.
