Robin Williams' Family Back in Court Over Estate Dispute

    Attorneys for Robin Williams' wife and children were due back in court Friday in the ongoing fight over the late actor's estate.

    The two sides were scheduled to go before a San Francisco judge, as court documents indicate they remain at odds over the division of Williams' personal items and a reserve fund to maintain Susan Williams in the home she shared with Robin Williams.

    Williams' children from previous marriages, Zachary, Zelda and Cody Williams, say the estate's trustees have determined the division of all of Williams' personal property, and those decisions are final. They accuse Susan Williams of holding on to property that is theirs.

    Susan Williams' attorney, James Wagstaffe, had said after a court hearing in June that Susan Williams wanted to keep items such as her husband's slippers, T-shirts and some boxer shorts.

    The children also say the trustees have arrived at a figure for a reserve fund for Susan Williams to cover the costs of the Tiburon home, but she wants more.

    Susan Williams says the trustees have refused to explain how they calculated the amounts for her reserve fund, which were different from figures she arrived at.

    Robin Williams died in August 2014 at the Tiburon home. The coroner ruled his death a suicide. The actor's wife has said he struggled with depression, anxiety and a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
