The last like, twenty years of Anna Nicole Smith’s life was spent in and out of court fighting various battles and her death has only added to the number of court cases surrounding the former Guess model and reality TV star. The judge ruling over the current case, which has Anna’s former lawyer and boyfriend Howard K. Stern as well as her two doctors on trail, is finally doing something to try and bring all of this to an end.
The two doctors are on trial for over-prescribing Anna medications. Howard is on trail for working with the doctors to more or less turn Anna in to a pilled-out vegetable. It’s a horrible case and these men’s actions are almost certainly responsible for her demise. As you can imagine, the list of their misdoings rolls out the door, and Anna’s lawyers have handed all of this information, every scrap and detail to the jury.
Well, guess what? All of that information is a little too much for 12 average Americans to process, and the judge has told Anna’s team to file it down to just the important details. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry was quoted as saying, “”Are you trying to impress the jury with so many charges or abuse the jury?… I think it hurts your case when you complicate it.”
Hopefully that’s what needed to be said to bring this case to a close. I’m pretty sure that Howard and the doctors have appealed this sentence as far as much as they can. Perhaps everyone involved in this long battle can put it behind them soon, even if they’re doing so from a prison cell.
