Appeals court rules that Smith's heirs will not receive oil money

Posted on March 24th, 2010 No Comments

A 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Houston jury’s decision that the estate of the deceased Anna Nicole Smith are not entitled to money from the fortune of Texas oil billionaire J. Howard Marshall. According to the decision, Smith’s daughter Dannielynn Birkhead is not entitled to $300 million that her estate claimed was promised to Smith when the billionaire was alive. The Circuit Court’s ruling upheld the decision that the tycoon’s will (that did not include Smith) was written and signed by a competent Marshall before his death.
