Bently, Suntrust Back In Court

There's more legal problems for the widow of the late millionaire Court Bentley of Bay County.

Bentley's grandfather was one of the founders of the Buick Motor Company, and established a $10 million trust for Court.

Now, Suntrust Mortgage is filing foreclosure papers on the 22-acre bear creek estate Court Bentley had shared with his widow, Emily.

Emily Bentley lost a wrongful death lawsuit against the bank which administered the trust. She had claimed the actions of the banks officers led to her husband’s 1998 death.

She has paid more than $2 million in attorney fees and might have to pay another $600,000 in such fees.
