Since the death of their mother and older sister, the three surviving Kings are the company’s sole shareholders.
Dexter King was not present at Monday’s hearing. Dexter King’s attorney said his client didn’t need to be in court, and besides, he couldn’t even if he wanted to because he was in rehab after a serious automobile accident in July.
“He has a severe injury to his leg and he was in the hospital quite some time for rehabilitation,” said Craig Frankel of the law firm Gaslowitz Frankel. “He is not allowed to travel.”
Frankel and Lin Wood, another attorney for Dexter King, confirmed that in July, he was involved in a serious two-car accident in California.
Wood said that someone hit King’s car and he suffered a shattered right femur.
