The appointment for the judges, who would determine the French court's jurisdiction over Johnny Hallyda's disputed legacy, would take place on November 30th. It has been postponed because of the award of trust that groups American assets to the singer.
"There is a new element in the procedure that is trust," announced the presidency of the Court of Justice in Nanterre, near Paris. The autumn of November 30, which would determine the French court's jurisdiction over the disputed legacy Johnny Hallyday, has been postponed until March 22.
Confidence JPS – For Jean-Philippe Smet, the real name of the rocker – collects part of the star's property since his death in December 2017. Managed by Bank of America and Laeticia Hallyday, the widow of the singer, is the only beneficiary. On October 25, Hallyday children's lawyers, Laura Smet and David Hallyday, issued a call to the bank running JPS.

"The will of trust is to access all assets," says one of Laura Smet's lawyers, Emmanuel Ravanas. It is therefore necessary that the Bank of America leave so that he can position himself on our requirements, (…) today it is not because we did not know it at the beginning. "
Elder Hallyday, David and Laura, challenge his father's will, prepared in July 2014 according to California law. He betrays all singer's property to his last wife, Laeticia, and their two daughters, Jade and Joy.
For David and Laura, their father's succession must be subject to the French rules, namely, a quarter of the deceased's legacy for his last wife and 3/16th for each of the four children. For his part, Laeticia Hallyday asks that French justice declares incompetent in favor of US jurisdictions.
