Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill, the actress/singer daughter of TV icons Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, will go to court later this week to stop the auction of part of her mother’s estate orchestrated by the Heritage Auction Galleries for Susie Morton, reports the Associated Press. Susie Morton is the widow of Gary Morton, who was Lucy’s husband at the time of her death.
Ball, the beloved star of one of the most popular sitcoms to ever appear on TV, "I Love Lucy," died in 1989.
Arnaz Luckinbill, who was one of the stars of "Here’s Lucy" and appeared on Broadway in "They’re Playing Our Song," wants certain items removed from the Morton auction, the article says: seven love letters, Ball’s address book, some portraits and several lifetime achievement awards being offered for sale.
Arnaz Luckinbill said those items could then be put on public display in a museum, the article says.
