Lawyers get more time in fight over Robin Williams’ estate

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A judge has given attorneys for Robin Williams’ wife and children more time to work out their dispute over his personal items and a reserve fund to maintain one of his homes.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Andrew Cheng said Monday that he was encouraged by the progress the attorneys were making. He gave them until the end of July to resolve their remaining differences.

Meredith Bushnell, an attorney for Williams’ children, Zachary, Zelda and Cody, said about 300 personal items remain in dispute after the death of Williams.

Attorneys said the two sides also need to resolve the value of a reserve fund to maintain Williams’ wife, Susan, in the San Francisco Bay Area home he left to her.

Susan Williams’ attorney, James Wagstaffe, said a second appraisal on the home is expected to be completed soon.
