NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The parties on each side have selected the physicians who'll examine Saints owner Tom Benson.

Those two doctors then selected a third doctor to complete the panel. Judge Kern Reese did not release the doctors' names.

The mental health evaluation is expected to be done in mid-March after which they will report back to the judge. The evaluation is part of the lawsuit over the future of Benson's assets when he dies.

The new information was revealed after a telephone status conference by Reese.
