Media mogul won’t testify in his own mental competency trial

​Here’s a mess. Sumner Redstone, the rich old guy who controls Viacom and CBS is being sued by the woman whom he named and then dismissed as his health care ​Attorney. She claims he’s incapacitated and that she should retain her Attorney role.

His legal attorney doesn’t want him to testify because of a “speech impediment”. Sure.  Sure, sure.

In the unlikely event that this goes to trial, it will be as good as the Republican national convention in terms of TV viewing.
