“The Heirs of Howard Hughes” Howard Hughes, Jr. (1905–1976), aviator, film producer, and manufacturer, died a multibillionaire. Unmarried and childless, Hughes left no clear heir. Hughes' death set off a stampede for his fortune of more than $2 billion, with over 200 lawyers representing various parties asserting a claim. Because there was no formal mediation at this time, the matter proceeded to trial.
Wayne Fisher represented the stepchildren of Rupert Hughes, Howard Hughes’ uncle. Wayne describes the personalities involved, the various wills proffered, and the machinations and sometimes bizarre happenings during the seven month trial.
