Anne Heche大儿子 Homer Laffoon has been named general administrator of her estate after a months-long legal battle with her ex James Tupper that began after the actress 死了 跟随一个 car crash 在八月.

The 20-year-old has been vying to take legal control over Heche’s remaining assets despite legal objections from Tupper, 57. In court in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Homer — whom Heche shared with ex-husband Coleman Laffoon — scored a legal victory when Judge Lee Bogdanoff named him to a permanent position of power.

The judge did issue the caveat that Homer could be removed as administrator if any evidence of fraud or embezzlement related to Heche’s jewelry emerged — but, said Judge Bodganoff, there has been no evidence of wrongdoing up to this point.

Heche’s second memoir still scheduled to be released and residuals for her acting roles still incoming, Judge Bodganoff noted the estate’s value is not set, so he scheduled a future hearing on the matter to address an $800,000 bond Homer previously requested on the estate.

Tupper previously objected to Homer’s latest request for the court to expand his authority over his late mother’s estate, citing poor treatment of his and Heche’s son, 13-岁 Atlas.

Tupper, 57, previously alleged that Homerhas acted in a hostile mannertowards his half brother andhas refused to communicate with him or his representatives at all.

“更远, Atlas has no confidence in [Homer]’s ability to meet his fiduciary obligations to Atlas,” the filing stated, adding that Homer has allegedly not inventoried their mother’s belongings, per his agreement with Tupper and Atlas, before they place the items in storage.

Tupper’s attorney Christopher B. Johnson previously argued that Homer already had some of the powers he’d requested from the court, which they saidunderscores his lack of competence and inability to preserve estate assets.

Johnson repeated those claims in court on Wednesday, 声称 “mismanagementby Homer, but Judge Bogdanoff declared there was no evidence of any malfeasance by Homer, nor any credence to Tupper’s claims. (When Homer was named special administrator in late October, the filing indicated that Tupper’s objection had beenreviewed and considered.”)

Judge Bodganoff added at this latest hearing that he hasencouraged the brothers to talk about thingstwice, 注意到 “Atlas was caught in the crossfireof the legal battle over control of the estate.

After Homer filed papers to assume control of his mother’s estate 在九月, he and Tupper have been locked in a legal battle. Although Homer claimed that his mother didn’t have a will, Tupper said Heche named him the executor more than a decade ago. Homer has since argued that the signature on his mother’s purported will is not valid, while accusing Tupper of preventing him from communicating with his younger brother.

The pair has also been fighting for guardianship ad litem of Atlas, with Tupper arguing earlier this month that Homer has conflicts of interest in the custody battle for his biological son as it relates to Heche’s estate, and that appointing him custodywould actually harm the interestsof Atlas.
