Court to review Anna Nicole Smith's husbands probate case

Posted on October 1st, 2010 No Comments

Monday, Supreme Court justices agreed to take a second look at the late Anna Nicole Smith’s husband’s probate case after her estate was ruled against in federal appeals court.

Smith was married to the much older J. Howard Marshall, a Texas oilman, for fourteen months before he passed away in 1995.  Marshall’s will named everything to his son and Smith received no assets.  She later sued claiming that her late husband had promised her $300 million.

Since Smith’s death, the case proceedings have been stalled.  Next year courts are scheduled to resolve the case by deciding if Smith’s estate had a proper trial in federal court and whether or not state courts should the place to handle such probate suits.
