Since Prince died just over a year ago, his estate has been overseen by two different administrators. Now a judge is readying to bring in a third.
Last week, a lawyer representing the estate’s current representative, Comerica Bank & Trust, filed a letter asking the judge overseeing the case to appoint an additional “special administrator” that could “pursue claims” on behalf of the estate that Comerica can’t, due to conflicts of interest. The letter also suggested that the judge appoint an attorney to the role. While it wasn’t clear from the heavily redacted letter which claims such an administrator might pursue, several of Prince’s heirs have called in previous court filings for an investigation into the some of the deals inked on the estate’s behalf by Bremer Trust, which served as the estate’s special administrator until February.
