Redstone Ex-Girlfriend to Seek New Trial on Mental CapacityEdvard Pettersson
Sumner Redstone’s fight to be rid of a former girlfriend isn’t over yet.
Manuela Herzer, who last month lost her bid for a court ruling that the media billionaire is mentally incompetent, is now asking for a new trial.
Redstone, 93, cut Herzer out of his will last year when he also removed her from his advanced health-care directive as the person to make decisions for him when he is no longer able. She wants a court order reinstating her as his health-care agent.
Her lawyer said in a statement there is “newly-discovered evidence” supporting her claim that Redstone is incompetent and that he was unduly influenced by his daughter Shari.
