ATLANTA (AP) -- The surviving children of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. have met to formally discuss estate business for the first time in five years.
Martin Luther King III, the Rev. Bernice King and Dexter King are the remaining heirs of their father's estate, which is a privately held corporation. The siblings are in the midst of a legal feud, with Martin King and Bernice King claiming Dexter King has acted improperly as head of the estate.
Fulton County Superior Court spokesman Don Plummer says all three appeared in a courtroom Monday for a closed-door shareholders meeting that had been ordered by a judge. The Kings last held an annual meeting to discuss the estate in 2004.
Dexter King has also sued his sister over her handling of their mother's estate, which Bernice King runs.
