Attorney Kent Alderman told The Associated Press that Dion Mial will no longer seek to be appointed the special administrator of Coleman's estate because a more recent will has surfaced.
Mial was named in Coleman's 1999 will and was informally appointed as the estate's special administrator. But that appointment was challenged by Coleman's ex-wife, Shannon Price.
On Friday, an attorney for Coleman's former girlfriend Anna Gray filed documents with the court saying she was named in a 2005 will.
Price and Gray each say they should be responsible for administering the "Diff'rent Strokes" star's estate and deciding what happens to his remains.
