Anna Does Deserve Her Late Husband's Fortune



Anna Nicole Smith won another shot at getting her hands on her late husband's fortune Monday April 1st, 2006

The long legal battle has at last resulted in something. The US Supreme Court ruled on Monday April 1st, 2006 that one-time stripper and Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith could pursue part of her late husband's, J. Howard Marshall II, oil fortune.

As for you to notice, Smith who's tied the knot with Marshall in 1994, once claimed that her husband promised her half of his estate, estimated to be worth more than $1.6 billion at the time of his death in 1995. Despite such fact, Howard's son, E. Pierce Marshall, insisted that he was his father's sole heir and that Smith was only entitled to $6 million in gifts that she received in 1994.

The court's decision, which was unanimous, signs that the case won't end anytime soon with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Smith should have a fresh chance to pursue claims in federal court.
