SALT LAKE CITY -- An attorney for the former manager and friend of late actor Gary Coleman says he will bow out of the fight for Coleman's estate.
A hearing on Coleman's estate was scheduled for Monday in Provo, Utah.

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.
