The family of Martin Luther King Jr. has settled a disagreement over what to do with the civil rights icon’s 1964 Nobel Peace Prize medal, although the terms of the settlement are not exactly known, Reuters reports.
A judge confirmed that the matter was settled in an Atlanta court Monday. The trial to settle the yearslong dispute—one that has long put King’s two sons at odds with their sister—had been scheduled to start that very same day.
The three siblings, Reuters notes, are directors of a corporation that was formed to manage the estate of King, who had no will at the time of his 1968 assassination.
