Sumner Redstone’s fight to be rid of a former girlfriend may be granted by a Los Angeles probate judge who tentatively ruled against her lawsuit alleging the 92-year-old media billionaire was mentally incompetent.

If the judge makes his proposed ruling final, it could end the case on the second day of a trial and avoid a further public airing of the infighting among the Redstone family, some of his former girlfriends, and the nurses who take care of the former Viacom Inc. and CBS Corp. chairman.
