The Supreme Court will hear an appeal from the estate of Anna Nicole Smith in a bitter, 15-year battle over the fortune of the elderly Texas billionaire whom Smith married in the mid-1990s.

The justices on Tuesday agreed to reconsider an appeals court ruling against Smith's estate.

The will of Smith's husband, J. Howard Marshall, left nearly all his money to his son, E. Pierce Marshall, and nothing to Smith. The younger Marshall died in 2006 and Smith died of a drug overdose in 2008.

Smith's estate challenged the will, claiming that her husband promised to leave her more than $300 million above the $7 million in cash and gifts showered on her during their 14-month marriage.
