Supreme Hendrix Decision
(PR) Yesterday, the Washington Supreme Court denied the last appeal in Leon Hendrix’ five year challenge of James “Al” Hendrix’ Will. Al Hendrix was Jimi Hendrix’ father, sole heir and founder of Experience Hendrix, LLC, the family company committed to preserving Jimi Hendrix’ musical, cultural and artistic legacy. Immediately after Al Hendrix’ death in 2002, Leon Hendrix filed this lawsuit challenging Al’s chosen heirs and his plan for continuing Jimi Hendrix’ legacy.
After a lengthy trial in 2004, Judge Ramsdell denied Leon Hendrix’ challenge. Leon appealed. In 2006, the Washington Court of Appeals unanimously affirmed Judge Ramsdell’s decision. On June 5, the Washington Supreme Court denied Leon’s last appeal. With this decision, Leon’s challenge is over and the Will can now be carried out as Al Hendrix had intended.
Now that Leon has exhausted his appeals, Janie Hendrix observed, “My dad was an extremely generous man who had a clear vision for preserving and maintaining the legacy of Jimi Hendrix. We’ve done our best to realize that vision. We intend to continue on the path laid out by my father and to redouble our efforts to fulfill that vision.”
