The latest development in the seemingly never-ending legal battle between the Anna Nicole Smith estate and the late J. Howard Marshall’s son E. Pierce Marshall may see 6-year-old Dannielynn Birkhead, the daughter of Larry Birkhead and Anna Nicole, $49 million of the elder Marshall’s fortune, estimated to be anywhere from $500 million to $1 billion.

A California federal judge has amended the old Supreme Court ruling that Anna Nicole’s estate wasn’t entitled to any of the money, claiming that the Marshall legal team had fought dirty with the use of delaying tactics, concealing documents, and general “bad faith conduct.” [Page Six, NYDN]
