Benson wins another court battle

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

There is a new development in the battle for Tom Benson's sports empire.

A U.S. district judge has ruled that his lawsuit will continue in New Orleans. (READ the ruling here: http://shout.lt/7pJW)

The owner of the Saints and Pelicans wants to keep his daughter and grandchildren out of the teams' ownership.

The judge rejected a motion to dismiss the case by a trustee overseeing a group of Benson family trusts.

Lawyers representing the trustee argued that the federal court in New Orleans did not have jurisdiction in a case involving trusts and businesses founded in Texas.
