Florida appeals court to hear Anna Nicole Smith's mother's appeal
UPI News Service, 02/26/2007
A Florida appeals court ruled Monday that Anna Nicole Smith's body can't be moved until a challenge from her estranged mother, Virgie Arthur, is heard.
The Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal agreed to hear Arthur's request to overturn a Broward County judge's decision to give Smith's body to her 5-month-old daughter and her court-appointed guardian, TMZ.com said. The guardian decided Smith should be buried in the Bahamas next to her son, who died in September.
Arthur earlier filed a motion with Broward County Judge Larry Seidlin, asking him to stay his ruling, which would block the burial in the Bahamas. He denied the request.
