Judge says Brown auction can go forward

A judge on the South Carolina Court of Appeals ruled today that the auction of James Brown’s personal items may go forward as scheduled on Thursday.

In the court order, Judge Jasper Cureton said there was no reason why the auction could not go forward.

On Tuesday Albert H. Dallas and Alfred A. Bradley, two of Mr. Brown’s former business managers, asked the court for an emergency stay of the sale.

The court-appointed trustees, Adele J. Pope and Robert L. Buchanan, want the sale to go forward and so that the money from the Christie’s auction can be used to pay off legal fees and debt on Mr. Brown’s estate.
