It has been 15 years since J. Howard Marshall died. When he died Anna Nicole Smith said that her elderly husband had promised her $300M when he died. Instead she got nothing. So, for the past 15 years the case has been heard in Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and in Washington DC. Yesterday the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case one more time.
Anna Nicole Smith met her late husband while stripping. Anna was 26 and her husband 89. Since the death of J. Howard Marshall, his son has died, Anna has died, Anna's oldest child has died and one of the people accused of maybe contributing to the death of Anna, Howard K. Stern is in charge of Anna's estate with Larry Birkhead.
At this point, lawyers in the case must have spent $50M in fees or more. You would think the heirs of the estate would throw Dannielynn a bone and give her $50M and make the whole thing go away. That the heirs have kept fighting shows how much they must have disliked Anna.
