Michael Oher and Tuohy Family Conservatorship Finally Gets the Judge’s Verdict
A judge in Tennessee has decided to stop the arrangement that gave the Tuohy family control over Michael Oher’s money.
This arrangement started in 2004 when the Tuohy family took Oher in, even though he was already 18 years old. Now, Judge Kathleen Gomes has decided to have this arrangement over.
According to the AP news, Gomes isn’t closing the case yet. Oher still wants to know how much money the Tuohy family received while they were in charge of his finances.

This situation started when Oher claimed the family lied to him in August. He thought he was signing papers for them to adopt him, but it turned out to be for the conservatorship.
“The Tuohys said the conservatorship was the tool chosen to comply with NCAA rules that would have kept Oher from attending the University of Mississippi, where Sean Tuohy had been a standout basketball player.
“When it became clear that the Petitioner could not consider going to the University of Mississippi (”Ole Miss”) as a result of living with the Respondents, the NCAA made it clear that he could attend Ole Miss if he was part of the Tuohy family in some fashion,” the Tuohys’ Sept. 14 court filing said.”
Oher’s story was told in the film “The Blind Side,” which stars Sandra Bullock.
