Statement Regarding Petitions Filed by Loeb & Loeb on Behalf of Sherri Crichton

April 16, 2009

LOS ANGELES, April 16 /PRNewswire/ — “Loeb & Loeb, on behalf of the firm’s client Sherri Crichton, widow of Michael Crichton and the mother of their newborn son John Michael Todd Crichton, today filed a routine petition in Probate Court requesting the Court’s blessing that she will not be violating the terms of her late husband’s will or trust by acting on their son’s behalf to establish his clear legal right to share in his father’s estate, as Michael Crichton intended,” stated Adam Streisand, Partner at Loeb & Loeb. “The petition also addresses pension benefits that federal law mandates are to be paid to Sherri Crichton as the surviving spouse. These are routine requests that are made of the probate courts to avoid running afoul of what we call a standard ‘no-contest clause’ in a will or trust. We have no reason to believe the court would have any concerns whatsoever with the requests we are making on behalf of Sherri Crichton,” Mr. Streisand added.
