Anna Nicole Smith's mother's attorney collapses during hearing

UPI News Service, 02/22/2007 

The attorney for Anna Nicole Smith's estranged mother collapsed in a Broward County, Fla., courtroom during a hearing on where Smith should be buried.

John O'Quinn, a lawyer for Virgie Arthur, collapsed in court at midday after more than three hours of testimony, the Miami Herald said.

When Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin asked O'Quinn, a diabetic, what he needed, the attorney replied, orange juice.

The judge ordered a recess. On the way out he said, "I'm working them too hard."

Arthur said she wants the body released to her so Smith can be buried in her home state of Texas.

Smith's companion, Howard K. Stern, wants the body to be buried in the Bahamas next to Smith's son, Daniel, who died in September. Stern said it was Smith's wish to be buried beside her son.

Smith died Feb. 8 in a Florida hotel room of unknown causes.

Seidlin ruled later Smith's 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn, should get the body. After court adjourned, Stern, Birkhead and Arthur jointly announced Smith would be buried in the Bahamas.
