SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Lawyers for New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson say they will appeal a decision to appoint two individuals to oversee a trust holding assets for him in the San Antonio.

The appointment comes in the middle of lawsuits filed in Texas and New Orleans seeking control over Benson’s financial empire.

The San Antonio Express-News reports (https://bit.ly/1zqT3pM ) Monday that former Mayor Phil Hardberger and estate planning lawyer Art Bayern have been appointed as co-receivers of the trust.

The trust in the San Antonio area includes auto dealerships, a bank and ranch property.

The Texas lawsuit does not involve the pro teams in Louisiana, but is part of the dispute that has publicly erupted in the past month between Benson and close family members.
