Saints News, 6/25/15: Benson's Ex-Heirs to File Ruling Appeal after Saints Owner was Declared Competent

From WhoDatDish: “Renee, Rita and Ryan, having heard with their own ears and seen with their own eyes Tom Benson’s mental decline, as well as the compelling evidence presented at trial from every single witness, believe that Tom Benson remains in that ‘foggy state’ described by the Court, and that the cognitive impairment acknowledged by the Court is worse and will only continue to worsen,” Randy Smith said in a statement. “Although we have the utmost respect for the Court, refusal of Tom Benson’s counsel to allow Tom Benson to take the witness stand further evidences Tom Benson’s diminished capacity and serves to suppress the truth.”
