Tennessee judge ends Michael Oher’s conservatorship with 'Blind Side' family

Sep 29, 2023

A Tennessee judge said Friday she is ending the conservatorship agreement between former NFL player Michael Oher and Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, per the Associated Press.

The agreement, which was reached in 2004, was terminated by Shelby County Probate Court Judge Kathleen Gomes. While in place, it allowed the Tuohys to take over Oher's finances after the couple took him in when he was in high school.

Oher was 18 and living with the Tuohys when he signed the agreement as he was being recruited to play college football. The story of Oher and the Tuohys was the subject of the 2009 movie "The Blind Side" starring Sandra Bullock, who earned an Academy Award for best actress.
