Friday was the deadline to hand over the reports for Tom Benson’s judge ordered mental evaluation.
Three doctors will decide if Benson is competent to control his empire. The evaluation is part of the lawsuit over the future of Benson’s assets when he dies. Benson’s daughter, Renee Benson, and grandchildren, Rita and Ryan LeBlanc, filed suit against the 87-year-old after he announced plans to turn future ownership of the saints and pelicans over to his wife Gayle upon his death. That suit claimed Benson was not competent in managing his own affairs.
The results of Benson’s mental health evaluation are being kept secret.
