Effort to appoint a guardian for Houston Texans owner dropped after son withdraws lawsuit.

Robert Cary McNair Jr. filed to appoint a guardian for Janice McNair, 87, in Harris County probate court.

On Monday, they jointly dropped the lawsuit, opting to address issues privately.

Cary McNair filed the lawsuit to protect his mother's health, denying claims by his brother Cal.

Cal McNair's attorney expressed relief at the dismissal, stating Janice McNair will continue her involvement with the Texans.

The decision followed a ruling that Janice McNair wouldn't undergo a mental capacity evaluation.

Details prompting the guardianship attempt had been sealed.
