Half Brothers Get Greedy, Threaten To Sue, Costs Them 158K

What we have here is a tale as old as time itself. Some half brothers get obnoxiously greedy, fly too close to the sun, and pretty much melt their wings off to the tune of $158K. If they'd have simply been reasonable human beings and offered some sliver of understanding in regards to the circumstances of the inheritance that was so graciously left behind, they might've actually gotten their share of the money. But alas, they took the different, ill advised route.
