Poor Anna Nicole. The 9th circuit reversed her 2002 judgment of about $85M from the estate of her dead hubsand, J. Howard Marshall, so now she’s back to zero. What I like are passages in the opinion such as this:
Vickie Lynn Marshall [Anna’s legal name] argues that we need not consider the applicability of the probate exception because it operates only where the federal court has diversity jurisdiction and not in federal question cases. She relies on the 11th Circuit’s decision in Goerg v. Parungao...
I just like imagining her in her heels & nails, explaining the subtleties of the probate exception to a panel of federal judges.
The funny thing is, this case has a potential basis for a Supreme Court hearing, since it turns on an issue that has been decided differently by different federal appeals courts.

The eagle has landed
Seduced by the dark side
You've been in law school too long when...
I have only five more class days
The lone gunman
The last spring break is over
Someone saved your life tonight
