NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

There's new movement in the legal power struggle over Tom Benson's empire.

An attorney associated with the case said Monday a Texas judge ordered lawyers for Benson and his daughter to file a settlement over a disputed family trust fund, according to Nola.com | The Times-Picayune.

One of the receivers in control of the fund said lawyers for Tom Benson and Renee Benson would not tell the judge whether their clients had agreed on a new trustee to take over.

The trust fund holds interests in real estate and car dealerships. 

The judge ordered the lawyers to submit a filing, wrapping up the case by next Friday.
