SAN ANTONIO (WVUE) -

A Texas appeals court has sided with tom Benson's heirs, according to Nola.com | The Times-Picayune.

The court reportedly ruled Wednesday that Benson's decision to cut off his heirs and move money out of a Texas trust fund gave a San Antonio judge legitimate reason to remove Benson from control over the fund.

For now, court-appointed receivers will remain in control of the fund, which owns stakes in Lone Star Capital Bank, car dealerships and real estate.
