Judge rules Tom Benson needs assistance in managing assets

While not a ruling that Saints owner Tom Benson lacked sound mind when recently changing his will to freeze out a daughter and her children from running his NFL and NBA franchises, a judge in San Antonio found Monday that Mr. Benson requires assistance in the management of his assets.

Via Katherine Sayre of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Judge Tom Rickhoff determined that Mr. Benson is facing “tremendous pressures” and that it would be “reasonable and safe” for someone to assist him.

Mr. Benson’s lawyers opposed the decision, but the judge decided that the appointment of a pair of receivers to assist with the management of the assets will “calm[] everything down” while other litigation proceeds in New Orleans.

The judge explained that lingering questions about decisions made by Mr. Benson — which weren’t clarified at last week’s hearing because he chose not to testify — influenced the outcome.

Mr. Benson decided last month to transfer the Saints and the NBA’s Pelicans to his wife, Gayle, upon his passing. Daughter Renee Benson and her children, Rita and Ryan LeBlanc, immediately filed suit to challenge the move.

Re: Judge rules Tom Benson needs assistance in managing assets

One of the locals near Grand Isle told me that it's common knowledge in those parts if you want to get rid of something forever, with no trace, the alligator farm down the road is a certified option. If I were Rita I'd keep some gator repellant in my purse and take some aiming lessons.

Re: Judge rules Tom Benson needs assistance in managing assets

Now, would anyone like to revisit the events of Roger Goodell's Bountygate and care to speculate had Mr. Benson been in better, stronger mental health that the Commissioner would have faced more of a challenge on his unilateral, abusive bullying powerplay?!?

Before any Benson apologists geaux off crying, consider the question a prudent, fair question now as information is being disclosed and coming to light...

Re: Judge rules Tom Benson needs assistance in managing assets

You mean a man with business ventures worth billions of dollars and two professional sports teams need assistance managing his assets?? No **** SHERLOCK!

I don't need a lame-ass judge to tell me Benson is "under pressure".... What the hell does a judge know about that kind of pressure anyway???

Let's get it straight - TOM BENSON built his empire.

Not Rita.
Not the estranged daughter we've never heard of.
Not the ex wife.
Not anyone else who's name isn't TOM Freakin' BENSON.
