It might not be greedy heirs but it is a greedy attorney who going by what WB is saying talked the heirs into backing out of agreements they had with WB.
The WB being so trustworthy in matters like this.
A court needs to set a final amount that WB has to pay that will give them complete control over the Superman character and end this once and for all.
That isn't within the power of the court. Under copyright law, the Siegels (and Schuesters) are entitled to copyright reversion; any resale or whatever of the copyright back to WB/DC is a matter between those two parties following completion of the reversion.
