did not prove Tom Benson had breached his duties as trustee of the
Shirley Benson trust. It also states that the probate court had not

Lawyers for both billionaire Tom Benson and his daughter and
grandchildren agreed Monday to seek an agreement through a mediator on
future control of a contested trust, estimated at almost $1 billion in
value, left by Benson’s first wife, Shirley Benson.
