The Supreme Court today ruled against the estate of Anna Nicole Smith 15 years after the fight began to get a share of her billionaire husband’s estate. This ends forever the case and means her daughter will not reap the benefits of her mother marrying a husband 63 years her senior.
In other news, Lindsay Lohan will not be going back to jail for violating the terms of her probation. She was brought into court today on the premise that she tested positive for alcohol. However, the probation department erred in bringing her into court on a violation of the terms of her probation. Her probation terms only covered drugs but not alcohol. However, the judge did say that Lohan used poor judgment in having a party where alcohol was served. Lohan and her attorney breathed a sigh of relief this time.
And on the Casey Anthony case, the courtroom was dark again today. Trial resumes on Tuesday in the high profile case of Anthony. Perhaps, the defense will be able to come up with a better defense by then. By all accounts, the case is going well for the defense, as it is not their burden to prove anything. The statements made in opening statements will need to be backed up for the jury to consider the defense’s opening. Did the prosecution prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt? That remains to be seen.
And the beat goes on and on.
