McALESTER (AP) - Gene Stipe's guardian and former law partner has sued the former state senator's business associate for taking control of Stipe's oil and gas property revenues and allegedly mishandling Stipe's business affairs.

Eddie Harper's lawsuit, filed in Pittsburg County District Court, lists as defendants Steve Covington, who controlled Stipe's business interests, and several limited liability companies in which Stipe has an ownership stake.

The suit seeks to determine ownership interest of several properties, including the Gene and Agnes Stipe Building Complex, which is being leased temporarily as Pittsburg County's courthouse.

The lawsuit also aims to rescind the transfers of Stipe's oil and gas interests.
