Anna Nicole Smith's Fight for Late Husband's Cash Still Ongoing


Anna Nicole Smith


Though the late star's appeal was rejected earlier this year by federal appeals court judges, Supreme Court will reconsider the case.

Anna Nicole Smith's fight for cash from her late husband's estate will continue from beyond the grave - officials at the U.S. Supreme Court have agreed to reconsider the case. The busty blonde launched a legal battle for a $300 million share of oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall's estate prior to her death in 2007, maintaining he promised her the money during their 14-month marriage.

In his will, the 89 year old, who died in 1995, left his entire fortune to his son, E. Pierce Marshall - and Smith's legal advisers have been trying to win a share of the cash ever since. Their bid was dealt a blow in May this year when judges at a Los Angeles appeals court ruled a Houston, Texas jury was correct in determining that the oil mogul was mentally fit when he signed his will.

Smith's attorneys have continued to appeal the ruling and took the case to the U.S. Supreme Court, where officials decided on Tuesday, September 28 to reconsider the result of the Texas hearing. If Smith's lawyers are triumphant in their battle, any money awarded to the late star's estate will benefit her four-year-old daughter Dannielynn Birkhead, who was named the sole heir of the model's fortune.
