The ABA Journal reports an Austin, Texas, solo practitioner with a famous son and a controversial business has died, and the coroner’s office is investigating the cause.

Lawyer Mina Brees, a former president of the Austin Bar Association, died Friday in Grand County, the Austin-American Statesman reports. Her son is New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

Last month the Texas Attorney General’s office had subpoenaed records of letters Brees had sent to several Austin and Houston restaurants, the TexParte Blog reports. The letters said the restaurants had lost the rights to their names, but they could buy them back for up to $25,000 each, according to the American-Statesman.

The letters said a company called Chicksports had assumed ownership of the names because the restaurants had failed to reserve or renew them under Texas law. The letters did not mention that Brees was president of Chicksports, according to an Aug. 7 story in the Austin-American Statesmen.

The Texas Restaurant Association has said the restaurants did not need to pay the money to keep their names.
