A judge says a Minnesota law firm may have "potentially relevant" information for determining who should inherit Prince's estate.

Carver County Judge Kevin Eide gave permission for the Minneapolis law firm Henson & Efron, which formerly represented Prince, to privately share that information with Bremer Trust, the special administrator overseeing Prince's estate.

The order released Wednesday but dated July 6 says the firm "might possess confidential information potentially relevant to the determination of the appropriate beneficiaries" of Prince's estate. The order doesn't say what that information might be.

The rock superstar died in April of an accidental drug overdose. No will has publicly surfaced, and the court has not ruled on whether his siblings or other claimants are his heirs.

Attorneys for Bremer Trust and Henson & Efron didn't immediately return calls seeking comment.
