Analysis of Anna Nicole Smith’s Will

The country’s morbid fascination with this tragic story does not change its sordid, and accordingly fascinating legal underpinnings… Though I loathe to consider myself “just-another-spectator” I nonetheless was driven to post to the analysis of the Will of Vickie Lynn Marshall, aka Anna Nicole Smith by the Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog. Their analysis begins:

  • Anna executed her will on July 30, 2001 in Los Angeles, California.
  • Eric James Lund prepared Anna’s will.
  • In Article I, Anna states that she has “intentionally omitted to provide for my spouse and other heirs, including future spouses and children and other descendants now living or those hereafter born or adopted” except for Daniel. Anna repeats this request in Article 6.2 when she states, “I have intentionally omitted to provide for any of my heirs.”
  • …and that is where it gets interesting. Everyone .. is .. talking .. about .. this.
