NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

An appeals court is refusing to speed up the legal battle over control of Tom Benson's empire.

On Thursday the court rejected a request made by the Saints and Pelicans owner to speed up proceedings. According to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, Benson wanted a schedule that would have set deadlines to have all briefs filed and the case heard by the court within roughly one month.

Last month, Benson announced he will transfer ownership of the teams to his wife, Gayle, when he dies. That prompted his daughter and grandchildren to file a lawsuit.

    Solar panels lighting up New Orleans East

    Solar energy is blanketing one neighborhood even after state tax credits disappeared. In New Orleans East at least 2,150 homes have solar energy and several homeowners are landing the panels at little or no initial cost.
