 ATLANTA – The estate of Martin Luther King, Jr. has dropped a lawsuit against the King Center.

The dispute over some of the civil rights icon's prized possessions, which was filed in 2013, had pitted King's two sons against the King Center, which is headed by King's daughter Bernice.

In a news release issued on Thursday, Dexter King said that Martin King III, the chairman of the estate, "has had a change of heart in recent days as it relates to the lawsuit filed in 2013."

A separate lawsuit filed by the estate against Bernice King regarding some of their father's most prized possessions, including his 1964 Nobel Peace Prize medal and travelling Bible, remains unresolved, according to William Hill, an attorney for Dexter King.
