• Harry Belafonte and King estate reach lawsuit agreement

    Updated:

    ATLANTA - Harry Belafonte and the estate of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Inc. announced Friday that they have settled their lawsuit.

    Belafonte filed a lawsuit against the King Estate last year. According to CNN, Belafonte said he acquired and owned three documents from Dr. King throughout their friendship. However, when Belafonte tried to sell those documents for a community fundraiser, the King Estate stopped it, claiming that those documents did not belong to him.

    Today, both parties have reached a compromise. Documents state that Mr. Belafonte now has possession of the documents. With their agreement, the parties express their appreciation to one another for the good faith efforts that led to this resolution.
