One Sumner Redstone Suit Dismissed, A New One Filed

A Los Angeles judge has rejected a lawsuit filed by Manuela Herzer against her ex-boyfriend, media mogul Sumner Redstone, who had her removed from his will last October. Herzer was challenging Redstone’s mental competence at the time. Now she’s suing Redstone’s daughter and other family members for more than $100 million. Behind all this is the question over who should control Viacom and CBS, a multi-billion dollar empire that includes Paramount Pictures, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and other networks.
