Family of Robin Williams Settles Dispute Over His Estate

The family of the late comedian and actor Robin Williams appears to have settled a dispute over his estate that has dragged on for almost a year. Williams committed suicide in August 2014.

Reuters cites court papers indicating that family members have reached a proposed settlement.

“The settlement, filed in San Francisco Superior Court on Oct. 2, dismissed a petition filed by the actor’s widow, Susan Schneider Williams, in December 2014 and brings an end to a nearly year-long dispute over a list of over 1,200 items belonging to the late actor,” Reuters reports.

Details were not disclosed, and the proposal requires court approval. Family members did not respond to requests for comments for the story.

“Susan Williams, who was the late actor’s third wife and not the mother of his three adult children Zelda, Zachary and Cody Williams, had said in the petition that some property was removed without her permission after the actor’s death from the house she had shared with her husband,” the story reports. “In August, attorneys for the three children filed papers in court saying Susan Williams was trying to unjustly increase a reserve fund dedicated to all recurring costs associated with the luxury Tiburon, California, home.”
