Former 'Anna Nicole Smith Show' star wins Supreme Court victory
UPI News Service, 05/01/2006
The U.S. Supreme Court Monday revived former Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith's claim to part of her late billionaire husband's fortune.
The high court unanimously sent the case back to a lower court and overturned a ruling that federal courts lacked jurisdiction in Smith's estate claim against her late husband's son, E. Pierce Marshall.
Smith and the younger Marshall have been battling over a half-billion dollar trust fund set up for her by her late husband, Texas oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II.
