NEW YORK (AP) — A feud over the fortune of an eccentric copper heiress whose father founded Las Vegas is poised to come to a head in a New York City courtroom.
Jury selection is due to start Tuesday in a civil trial surrounding Huguette (oo'-GET') Clark's will.
She owned lavish properties from New York's Fifth Avenue to the California coast. But she opted to spend her last 20 years ensconced in a Manhattan hospital.
The childless Clark died in 2011, at age 104. Her estate is estimated at roughly $300 million.
Clark's distant relatives say hospital executives, medical professionals and her lawyer and accountant manipulated her into bequeathing them millions of dollars.
The beneficiaries say Clark was a generous woman who wanted to help those who helped her.
