DALLAS (AP) — Texas billionaire Harold Simmons’ will leaves the bulk of his estate to his widow, with no listed contributions to any political groups or charities.
A Dallas judge on Monday ordered a redacted version of Simmons’ will to be released.
The will lists Annette Simmons as the sole beneficiary of her husband’s savings and real estate. The will does not list a total dollar value of Simmons’ estate.
Attorneys for Annette Simmons had argued for the will to be sealed to protect her safety and privacy, as well as the names of her children and grandchildren.
Harold Simmons had a wide range of corporate interests and gave hundreds of millions of dollars to charity. He also bankrolled several political campaigns.
