Judge rules Anna Nicole Smith estate entitled to none of oil fortune

Posted on

The Associated Press reports Anna Nicole Smith’s estate will not receive any money from former husband J. Howard Marshall’s estate, per the ruling of a federal appeals court judge. Prior to her death in 2007, Smith claimed she was entitled to more than $300 million left behind from Howard, who she was married to for a short period of time. Marshall, an oil tycoon who passed away in 1995, boasted a $1.6 billion estate. A rep for Smith’s estate announced he would appeal the ruling.
