CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota judge has approved an aggressive timeline for testing claims of heirship to Prince’s estate.
In a one-page order Monday, Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide approved a protocol proposed by the trust company overseeing his affairs. It gives existing claimants until Friday to file sworn statements detailing their claims to have a genetic relationship with Prince that would make them heirs. New claimants will get a little more time to file the documents, which ask for details on parentage, birth and marriage certificates, and more.
The special administrator would let claimants know within three days whether their claim is confirmed or ruled out, or if DNA testing is necessary.
The claimants included a Colorado prison inmate who says Prince was his father.
The next hearing is June 27.
