Despite his objections, Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson will have to submit himself to questioning from his daughter’s lawyers in the Texas court battle over control of a family trust fund, a judge decided Tuesday.
Attorneys for Benson had argued that a deposition was unnecessary, citing a wealth of testimony from witnesses who have taken part in a broader legal feud between Benson and his daughter, Renee Benson, as well as her children. But his daughter’s lawyers argued that her 88-year-old father should at least sit for questions with them, having avoided taking the witness stand at preliminary proceedings for the Texas case as well as a mental competency trial that he prevailed in last year.
