The dispute over the estate of the late Anna Nicole Smith's husband has carried on for quite some time, and the Supreme Court has agreed to take another look at the case. The former model's separate estate has been fighting for years to obtain a share of her deceased spouse J. Howard Marshall's fortune. According to CNN, the justices allowed reevaluation on the probate case, and oral arguments will be held next year.
Texas oilman J. Howard Marshall was 89 when he married Smith, who was 26 at the time. The two were married for fourteen months before Marshall died in 1995. The billionaire oilman left almost all his assets and trust to E. Pierce Marshall, his son from a previous marriage, and left nothing to Anna Nicole Smith. She was not given a share of the estate in the will or separate trust.
