Supreme Court Sides with Anna Nicole

Anna Nicole Smith is free to go after a share of her late husband's fortune. That's because she has the entire US Supreme Court on her side in a technicality.

The justices agreed unanimously that federal courts in California can deal with her case despite a Texas state court ruling that the husband's youngest son is the sole heir to the estate.

Looking back at the long history of the case: Smith won a 474 (m) million-dollar judgment, which was cut to about 89 (m) million and eventually reduced to zero. Although yesterday's ruling reinstates her case, there's no guarantee she'll collect any money.
