NEW YORK (AP) — A night nurse for a reclusive copper heiress who lived for 20 years in a New York City hospital isn't happy with a settlement over the woman's nearly $300 million estate.

The New York Post reported Monday that Geraldine Coffey filed court papers last week objecting to the September settlement over Huguette (OO'-ghet) Clark's will.

Clark's father was a Montana senator whose wealth came from copper, railroads and founding Las Vegas. Clark died in 2011 at age 104.

Coffey says she was shut out of settlement negotiations. Under the deal, she inherits nothing.

However, Coffey got $1 million in gifts during Clark's lifetime. Clark's estate is suing Coffey and others to try to recover such gifts.

Clark's estate has said Coffey pressured her patient for gifts. Coffey denies it.
