Judge sets date for closed hearing in Prince estate case

CHASKA, Minn. (AP) " A Minnesota judge has scheduled a closed hearing next week to deal with a dispute between potential heirs and the trust company overseeing the estate of the late rock superstar Prince.

The order from Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide says the trust company and "various presumed heirs" have been unable to agree on unspecified "confidential business agreements."

His order, filed Thursday, doesn't say what the dispute is about or which potential heirs are involved.

But it says oral arguments will be heard next Thursday, if any of the parties request them. Due to the nature of the matters to be addressed, he says, the hearing shall be closed to the general public and media.

The judge has kept many matters involving the estate's business dealings confidential.
