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.
