AIKEN - A sibling rivalry inside the family that controls the Bryant's Convenience Store chain will go before a judge today. In December, Jasper Marvin "Trey" Bryant III filed a lawsuit in Aiken County. In the suit, Mr. Bryant laid out what he said was a systematic power grab of the family business by his brother Edward Oliver Bryant. Today, Edward Bryant's lawyer will ask a judge to dismiss the lawsuit. His side of the family argues the statute of limitations - the legal deadline for such a lawsuit - has passed. They deny every aspect of Trey Bryant's case.
