McLEAN, Va. (AP) - One of Robert F. Kennedy’s children has won custody of a decorative planter that sat outside a Virginia estate where the branch of the famed American political family once lived.

The Washington Post reports that a federal judge has ruled a 2010 pact by Hickory Hill’s new owner to give up the urn was binding.

The court decision means that Kerry Kennedy gets back the 4-foot-tall planter that she recalls from her childhood.

Kennedy is a lawyer who is the seventh child of RFK and Ethel Kennedy. She plans to bring the urn to the family’s compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
