Feud ends with auction of James Brown memorabilia
Wednesday 16 July 2008
A South Carolina judge says an auction of James Brown's belongings in New York can go forward as planned this week.
South Carolina Court of Appeals Judge Jasper Cureton lifted a temporary stay that could have held up the sale of the late soul singer's belongings.
Christie's auction house has planned the bidding for Thursday and among the 320 items for sale are a red jumpsuit and blue satin cape.
The singer's former business managers, Buddy Dallas and Alfred Bradley, had argued the auction should be stopped.
They claimed the court should not have been able to appoint new trustees to handle Brown's estate.
Brown died on Christmas Day in 2006 of heart failure at the age of 73.
