In lawsuits such as the one in New Orleans involving questions about Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson’s mental capacity, it’s not uncommon for the courtroom to be closed to the public for at least some of the proceedings. But Benson’s lawyers apparently don’t want to take any chances.
They filed a motion Monday asking Civil District Court Judge Kern Reese to close all preliminary hearings and any trial that may occur in the ongoing dispute between the billionaire and his daughter and her children.
They also filed a request “to exclude” Benson’s testimony.

We will never know just how crazy Tom Benson really is
That's a shame.
