MLK heirs get more time to settle dispute over Bible, Nobel (GA)

ATLANTA (AP) – A judge is giving the children of Martin Luther King Jr. more time to try to resolve a dispute over their father’s traveling Bible and 1964 Nobel Peace Prize without a trial.

King’s estate, controlled by his sons, last year asked a judge to order their sister to surrender the items. In an estate board of directors meeting, the brothers, Martin Luther King III and Dexter King, had voted against their sister, Bernice King, to sell the items.

Trial had been set for February, but the judge in January stayed the case at the parties’ request to allow them time to settle. In his order, the judge scheduled a hearing for Wednesday if no settlement had been reached.

In an order signed Tuesday, he extended that deadline to May 27.
