Anna Nicole Smith stood to inherit half of the estate of J. Howard Marshall II, a wealthy Texas oilman. But when an unrelated sexual harassment claim put Anna Nicole into bankruptcy, the bankruptcy court wound up ruling on disputes between her and the other heirs. These disputes came before the U.S. Supreme Court a second time in Stern v. Marshall
, and the decision has since created significant controversy about the true reach of bankruptcy courts and other non-Article III courts. Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP partner Steven H. Silton
will be a panelist for the session entitled "Anna Nicole Smith Returns: Stern v. Marshall
and Article I Jurisdiction," a wide-ranging look into the practical and constitutional consequences of Stern
. This session will commence at 2:45.
