ATLANTA, July 11 (UPI) -- Two of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s children are suing their brother to get an accounting of their parents' estate.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday by Bernice King, administrator of Coretta Scott King's estate, and Martin Luther King III, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Dexter King and the estate of Martin Luther King Jr. are named as defendants.

Jock Smith, a lawyer representing the two plaintiffs, said Dexter King has not held a board meeting for his father's estate for some time and the suit is intended to force one. Bernice King and Martin Luther King III are seeking documents and other records, including e-mails and minutes of board meetings.
