By KJ Mullins     Sep 30, 2008 in World
An insurance company is being sued over a $10 million dollar life insurance policy that has yet to be paid out. The lawsuit has been filed on the behalf of a man who died of "accidental causes on January 22, 2008. That man was Heath Ledger.
The beneficiary of the policy is Matilda Rose Ledger, the daughter of Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams.
ReliaStar has stated that it is seeking more information about whether Ledger lied on his paperwork. They are also investigating if his death was a suicide.
The attorney for Ledger's estate John S. LaViolette claims that ReliaStar would have had to have investigated any statements Ledger made in paperwork while he was alive.
ReliaStar is seeking the depositions of the masseuse who found Ledger's body and of Mary-Kate Olsen. The company also wants to question Ledger's co-stars, agents and doctors according to William Shernoff, the attorney representing LaViolette and Matilda Rose.
Newsday reports:
"There's a young girl whose father died who is entitled to this money, and ReliaStar is doing everything it can to avoid paying," Shernoff said in a news release.
