LAS VEGAS (AP) — A dispute over B.B. King's health and wealth was tossed out of court yesterday by a judge in Las Vegas who said two investigations found no evidence the blues legend was being abused. The ruling keeps the 89-year-old musician's longtime business manager, Laverne Toney, in legal control of his affairs.

They vowed to keep fighting.
