In their newly available response to the suit, Gary and R. Randall Rollins, along with Tippie, explained the reason for creating the Rollins Perpetual Management Trust.
They stated that, "Randall Rollins and Gary Rollins have presented this plan to their children so that not only the grandchildren of O.W. Rollins, but also future generations of the Rollins family, will be able to enjoy the use of assets that have accrued as a result of the work and vision of O.W. Rollins, Randall Rollins and Gary Rollins."
O.W. Rollins was founder of Rollins Inc., Gary is chief executive and R. Randall is the chairman.
Gary Rollins and attorneys for the firm representing the defendants declined to comment.
