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.

Smith was 26 when she married the 89-year-old oil baron in 1994 and he died in 1995. She claims her stepson illegally interfered with her trust fund by destroying and altering documents.

She had been awarded $89 million by a federal bankruptcy judge, but an appeals court in San Francisco overturned the award, saying it would have interfered with Texas Probate Court proceedings.
