The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s estate has settled an ownership dispute with his daughter over the slain civil rights leader’s traveling Bible and Nobel Peace Prize medal.

King’s two sons and daughter are the sole shareholders and directors of the estate. Dexter Scott King is president and CEO, and Martin Luther King III is chairman of the board.

In a board meeting in January 2014, the brothers voted 2-1 against Bernice King to sell the two artifacts to an unnamed private buyer.

Bernice had possession of the two items. The estate filed a lawsuit asking a judge to order her to surrender them.

A judge in Atlanta on Monday signed an order saying the items are to be released to Martin, as chairman of the board of the estate.
