princeDan appeared on Good Morning America, Wednesday, April 27th to discuss the future of Prince’s multi-million dollar estate. Prince’s sister has told the court that she believes Prince has no will. Dan commented, “He went through a lot of lawyers and managers over time. There might still be a will out there, but if there isn’t a will, then it’s likely going to be divided amongst the siblings equally. Half siblings and full siblings get equal access but the first thing a probate court is going to have to do appoint an executor.” Watch the full segment here.

Dan on Fatal Police Shooting in Tulsa

April 14, 2015

CaptureDan joined Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America, Tuesday, April 14th to discuss the fatal police shooting that occurred in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Robert Bates, a 73-year-old volunteer reserve deputy sheriff has been charged manslaughter after shooting an unarmed man. Authorities say Bates reached for his taser but accidentally grabbed his handgun while chasing 44-year-old Eric Harris, who was running from police after allegedly selling drugs and guns. Dan commented on the manslaughter charge, “It means it was a criminal mistake. He’ll say on the one hand this was a regular mistake, that any person could make. The prosecutors are saying, no, there’s more than that. There’s a reasonable duty of care you have to use. You didn’t use it. You violated it. You move from being just a mistake to a criminal mistake facing the possibility of two to four years behind bars.” Watch the full segment here.
