That left the last case challenging Redstone’s competency to be dealt with. It was brought by his granddaughter Keryn Redstone.

She claimed she had been forced out of Sumner’s life by his daughter and that she was being treated unfairly in his estate plan. She has now agreed to drop her case after meeting with her grandfather. It remains to be seen whether the two reached any agreement to resolve any of her other claims.

While all legal challenges against Sumner Redstone are now concluded, it should not be assumed this is the end of the story entirely. Unless everyone resolves their differences, the battle over his estate after he passes away could get ugly.
