New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson has asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit filed by his now estranged heirs; who are seeking control of his NFL and NBA teams. Benson announced last week that his wife of 10 years, Gayle Benson, will be the rightful heir to both franchises.

Benson’s daughter Rene and granddaughter Rita were removed from his succession plan ;and in their lawsuit they claim Benson’s mental health is failing and that he has been manipulated into removing them from any involvement with the teams.
