The daughter of Lucille Ball is going to ask a court to block the scheduled auction of some of the comedienne's prized possessions.
Attorney Ronald Palmieri says a court hearing is scheduled for Friday morning that will decide whether the auction scheduled for Saturday can be stopped.
Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill, the daughter of Ball and first husband Desi Arnaz, says some of the items slated for the auction block belong to her. The items include love letters between Ball and her second husband, Gary Morton, photographs and lifetime achievement awards.
Morton's widow, who married him after Ball's death, has also sued Luckinbill to get a judge's order authorizing the auction by Heritage Auction Galleries. Heritage says it supports Susie Morton's case.
