IN SETTLEMENT, JIM IRSAY GETS TOTAL CONTROL OF COLTS
Published December 8, 1997
The "bitter fight" over the estate of Colts Owner Robert Irsay ended Friday, according to Welton Harris of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS. Under terms of the settlement, Irsay's son, Jim, will keep the team, and his widow, Nancy Irsay, "will have no stake" in the Colts. Daniel Luther, attorney for Jim Irsay, said the settlement makes him "one of the very few owners in the NFL who has a 100 percent ownership of his team." Although settlement details were not made public, Harris wrote that those "familiar with the agreement" say it "could be worth close to" $12M to Nancy Irsay (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 12/8).
