A trial over Sumner Redstone's mental competence abruptly ended on Monday when a California judge threw out a lawsuit brought by the 92-year-old's former girlfriend, Manuela Herzer, saying Redstone's deposition made clear the media mogul knew what he wanted.Judge David Cowan wrote in his ruling that Herzer's claims that Redstone could not understand or communicate were disproved by testimony from Redstone himself, in a deposition that was presented to the court Friday.Herzer argued in her lawsuit that Shari Redstone and the nurses attending the senior Redstone had conspired against her.If Herzer, 52, had proved her case, it could have triggered a chain of events that would result in the transfer of Redstone's controlling stake in both media companies to a seven-person trust that includes Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman and Redstone's daughter Shari.
