Harvard Law School Settles Estate Claim

Last year, The 10b-5 Daily posted about the unusual legal battle over the estate of Harvey Greenfield. Greenfield was a well-known plaintiffs' securities class action lawyer who passed away in 2002. Although Greenfield had told people that he planned to leave the bulk of his estate (valued at $35 million) to Harvard Law School, a will could not be located after his death. Harvard filed a claim against the estate. The New York Law Journal reports today that a settlement has been reached between Harvard and Greenfield's sole living heir to fund a securities law professorship in Greenfield's name with about $2.8 million.
