Martin Luther King's Kids File Lawsuit Against Each Other

It appears that Bernice and Martin King III have filed a lawsuit against their brother(Dexter) , accusing him of mishandling funds and hiding documents from them.
Dexter King denied the lawsuit's accusations, calling them "inappropriate and false.

He is quoted as saying, "
"When there are family disputes that involve a business entity, unfortunately, sometimes certain legal steps are taken to resolve the dispute," "I'm disappointed that our personal family disagreement, as it relates to the family business, has evolved into being handled in a public legal forum."


According to court documents, the siblings say Dexter King, who lives in Malibu, Calif., has "misapplied or wasted" the corporation's funds, using the money for his personal benefit.

I just feel sad (as Dexter) has expressed that this business had to be handled publicly. It is not he first time however that the King children have been in the news in a bad light. I remember after their mother's death in 2006 that Dexter King wanted to sell the King Center to the government. Martin III and Bernice were opposed to this idea.

I hope they resolve this matter quickly because I am quite sure both parents would be so disappointed and saddened to see their kids divided like this

*sigh* Sometimes I wonder if they have even listened to the Dream speech.
