They accused the two men of abusing their control over a complex array of family trusts and companies, pulling out $47 million and cutting off their nine children’s incomes if they didn’t meet a code of conduct.
A spokesman for the Rollins patriarchs declined to comment. In earlier interviews, representatives have said the Rollins brothers’ moves were legal, and that the four children were motivated by greed in their efforts to break up trusts with illiquid assets that were set up by the business dynasty’s deceased founder, O. Wayne Rollins.
Two days after the lawsuit was filed, Gary’s then-wife, Ruthie Rollins, sided with her children and filed for divorce. Shortly after, Glen Rollins was fired from his job as Orkin’s president, and the four children’s incomes from the trusts were cut off.
Randall’s five kids, who didn’t join the lawsuit, are still getting incomes from their trusts.
