Wednesday, documents were filed in Clark County's District Court on behalf of Hsieh's family in the matter of his estate.

Richard Hsieh, Tony Hsieh's father, and Andrew Hsieh allege in the court documents that they believe Tony Hsieh died without having a will made.

The court document's co-applicants, Richard and Andrew Hsieh, are seeking authority to investigate the existence of an estate plan.

The family alleges that they plan to access safe deposit boxes, legal counsel and other reasonable acts to ensure Tony Hsieh's testamentary directives are implemented along with gaining general powers to protect and manage the assets of the estate.
