Louise Cummings had the baby in April, nine months after Lewis died at age 65. She wants the child declared a beneficiary of the estate and requested interim payments of $3,250 a month until the case is resolved.

Her attorneys withdrew that request at a hearing Wednesday in Delaware after The Associated Press objected to closing of the courtroom and the judge indicated it likely would be denied.

Attorneys for Lewis' estate say no beneficiaries can be paid until creditors are satisfied. They have reached a tentative settlement with boxer Michael Spinks, whose claims exceed the estimated estate value of about $8 million.
