Justice announced Tuesday that they will consider an appeal from the former Playboy nudie Anna Nicole Smith. She claimed her now-dead husband, J. Howard Marshall II, wanted to give her most of his fortune. But his son made sure it didn't happen when Marshall died in 1995, at age 89 (Smith was 26).

She sued. A bankruptcy judge said she was entitled to $474 million. The son appealed and won. Now the Supremes will decide if federal courts can hear claims involving a state probate case.

Can't wait to see the briefs. Heh.
