Offit Kurman Attorney Don Foster Prevails in Teddy Pendergrass Case

Pendergrass widow wins ruling in estate battle

By Laura McCrystal, Inquirer Staff Writer POSTED: October 16, 2014 Teddy Pendergrass’ son and namesake submitted a fraudulent will to try to gain control of the singer’s estate, a Montgomery County Court judge has ruled. The decision from Judge Stanley Ott means the Pendergrass estate will remain under the control of his second wife, Joan, and will not shift to Theodore “Ted” Pendergrass II. At stake in the years-long dispute between son and widow has been not a large sum of money or property – Pendergrass had little of either before his death in January 2010 – but control over the singer’s legacy.
