Lucille Ball's daughter suing to stop sale of her mother's personal effects

Posted on

Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill, is going to court to attempt to block the auction of some her mother’s prized possessions, according to the Associated Press. A court hearing is scheduled for this morning, and it will be decided whether the auction—which is planned for tomorrow—should be stopped. Luckinbill claims that some of the items up for sale belong to her, including love letters between Ball and her second husband, Gary Morton, photographs, and lifetime achievement awards. Morton’s widow, however, has counter-sued Luckinbill to get a judge to authorize the auction of the personal effects.
