Skip to comments.Court: Anna Nicole Smith (Estate) Gets None of Oil Fortune
Posted on 03/20/2010 3:52:40 AM PDT by sodpoodle
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with a Houston jury that said J. Howard Marshall was mentally fit and under no undue pressure when he wrote a will leaving nearly all of his $1.6 billion estate to his son E. Pierce Marshall and nothing to Smith.
The decision if it holds up is bad news for Smith's ex-boyfriend Larry Birkhead and their 3-year-old daughter Dannielynn. The child was named Smith's heir in 2008 after she died of a drug overdose at 39 at a Florida hotel.
Birkhead and attorney Howard K. Stern were placed in charge of Smith's estate. Neither returned calls seeking comment.

My only regret is that Anna Nicole isn’t alive to hear this.
The only person in this whole thing who deserved anything is Virgie...IMHO
Old J. Howard owed the last years of his life to the “support” he received from Anna Nicole.
Are there NO attractive pics of Anna Nicole Smith that someone can post in an article like this?
“”Are there NO attractive pics of Anna Nicole Smith that someone can post in an article like this?””
I was hoping there would be some of the baby - she is adorable.
Well, well, well. Old Howard will now tell Birkhead “You can have her”. And Birkhead will say “Hell, no! You promised to help!”
I’m convinced that’s the only reason either of those two wanted that kid.
The never ending story! Upcoming trials:
Howard K. Stern and the two doctors who treated Anna Nicole Smith have a date with a jury on August 4.
Stern, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich face a total of 23 felonies — including illegally funneling sedatives and opiates to Smith.
Smith died of an accidental overdose in February of 2007.

On the Rita Cosby defamation suit as of August 2009:
(Looks as if Howie is going to be very busy this year - have to wonder how Larry Brikhead is going to hinder or help him)
PS: Why a pic of M. Romney?
Somehow I know you will stoically bear your disappointment with fortitude.
Wow. I wonder if Howard, as executor, was counting on this “income” to fund his defense? And so it seems now, unless she had other assets, that Larry and the baby are on their own, financially.
****PS: Why a pic of M. Romney?****
That’s JR’s embed - included in all threads I believe.
i’m sure howard stashed plenty over time and i’m sure birkhead wiil use the baby for many years to come.
well, now we know why Birkhead took Dannilynn to the park the other day just before judgement news. A little pre-announcement publicity, eh? but poor Larry, no 300 million baby for him (thank goodness!)- let’s see how fast he contacts Virgie now to hand off DL to since there’s no money anymore.
I cannot believe it has been THREE years since ANS and Daniel died.
Wish poor dear Rte66 was still with us.
Wondering too what happened to Rita Cosby - she has disappeared off the face of the earth. Perhaps when things heat up - Greta will have Rita on her show.
Wiki-'She is currently a Special Correspondent for the CBS syndicated program Inside Edition, specializing in interviewing newsmakers and political figures.'
There is still some ANS interest. With two trials this year....Stern, Kapur & Erosevich in August, also the Rita Cosby defamation suit.
Perhaps we need a diversion from the communist chaos;(
Can’t wait for the trial.Didn’t hear about the defamation suit.
fatima - please ping the group.
I made another boo-boo I really have to check more than a few sites for updates.
With a criminal trial looming on the question of whether he conspired to drug Anna Nicole Smith, the lawyer has settled a $60 million defamation suit he filed against former MSNBC anchor Rita Cosby over a tawdry tome she wrote.
A petition for dismissal was filed on Friday, Stern attorney Steve Sadow confirms to E! News, but he would not comment further “pursuant to the terms of the settlement.”
:)I think the only thing he has left is Vergie-Anna’s Mom.He pulled out of everything else.
I’m soldiering on.
Getting out of bed was a little rough this morning, but I shall press on and attempt to find some meaning in my life after this catastrophe.
I bet he did not get a penny from Rita Cosby.
