Safe at Home: Babe Ruth’s Stolen Will Recovered by NY Attorney General; Jackie Robinson’s Last Will and Testament Still Missing

But thanks to a court action brought by the New York State Attorney General’s office against hobby veteran Mark Lewis, the last document ever signed by Babe Ruth is back where it belongs.

Surrogate’s Court archivist, Kim Sulik, recently confirmed that the document had been returned to the Court, however, it was only this week that Haulsofshame.com obtained a copy of the Court’s decision in the State of New York vs. Mark Lewis, which was filed earlier this year at the New York County Clerk’s office.  The original action was filed against Lewis by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo when he was still Attorney General.

Judge Marilyn Sugarman, appointed special referee in the case, said in her decision, “Although no evidence was presented with respect to whether, in fact, it was Mr. Lewis who removed the last will and testament of George Herman “Babe” Ruth, again, there was sufficient evidence that it is currently in his possession.”   Lewis was ordered to return the stolen document within thirty days and complied with the Court’s order.
