FULTON COUNTY DA ATTEMPTS TO HALT THE FURTHER SALE OF DIANE MCIVER’S ASSETS
Atlanta- Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr. announces that today January 12, 2017, two separate emergency motions were filed in Fulton County Superior Court in the matter of the death of Diane McIver.
The first motion, an emergency injunction, was filed to stop the further sale of Mrs. McIver’s Estate by Claud McIver, III. The injunction is based upon the principles of the Georgia’s Slayer law, which prevents someone who caused the death of another person from receiving the proceeds of an estate, trust or life insurance policy
The second motion, seeks to impose additional bond conditions, which would prevent Mr. McIver from expending any assets from the estate of Mrs. McIver to fund his legal defense, or provide for his own support and well-being. In the alternative, the District Attorney is asking if the sale is allowed to continue that the proceeds of the sale are held until criminal proceedings in this case are completed.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Constance Russell is scheduled to hear the motion Friday, January, 13, 2017 at 1 p.m. in courtroom 8F.
