This story’s got it all: wealth, power, charity, allegations of misappropriation of funds, feuding heirs and lawyers running their mouths.
And what’s driving the train? This:
At the heart of the standoff, Martin said, is a fight over a number of University of Georgia season football tickets. Martin said Frank Lumpkin III got the tickets “through his daddy” and shares them with his sister each season. He accused Julia Lumpkin of refusing to close the estates until the tickets are transferred to her name.
“She’s holding the estates hostage over these football tickets,” Martin said in an interview. “It’s not an argument of ‘Do you or don’t you get the tickets.’ She wants them in her name, but they don’t have anything to do with the resolution of the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Lumpkin.”
Martin would not specify how many tickets the Lumpkins receive but said they are good seats.
