The copper heiress Huguette Clark

in about 1943, when she was 37.
To allow time for negotiations, jury selection has been put off until Thursday morning in Surrogate's Court in Lower Manhattan.
The office of the New York attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, is trying to broker a settlement, attorneys said. His office's Charities Bureau has made previous attempts, but Clark's relatives, who are challenging her last will and testament, have not been able to find common ground with the beneficiaries named in the will.
It wasn't clear Monday night how close a settlement might be. Several of the more than 60 attorneys in the case declined to comment. Schneiderman's office had no comment.
