The formidable CEO of the King Center is scheduled to hold a press conference Thursday at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta in response to a lawsuit filed by her siblings.

Her press officer told theGrio that King is expected to read from a prepared statement expressing her opposition then will field questions from reporters.

It comes following a complaint against King, filed Friday in Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta by the estate of Martin Luther King Jr., which is managed by her brothers. The suit is asking a judge to force King to relinquish their father’s Nobel Peace Prize and “traveling” Bible.

The court documents, which has been viewed by theGrio, says in 1995 Martin Luther King Jr.’s heirs, including the defendant, assigned their rights to property inherited from their father to the Estate of Martin Luther King Jr. Inc. The lawsuit goes onto to state that King has “secreted and sequestered” the medal and Bible “in an undisclosed location” which is a violation of the 1995 agreement.
