Garcia's wife sues to free recordings

Deborah Koons Garcia, widow of Jerry Garcia, is suing the company which administers his estate. Koons Garcia claims the company - of which she is a member - is frustrating attempts to release unheard Garcia material, and should have packed its affairs up at the end of 2005 anyway.

Other beneficiaries of the estate, including Jerry's daughter Keelin Noel Garcia, have their own legal battle already running with Deborah. Keelin claims Koon Garcia's handle on financial affairs has been "shoddy".

A judge will affect to care as soon as April 13th.
