Estate of Denial: Rarely these days does anything positive come out of Washington D.C., but yesterday yielded a piece of good news.

Estate of Denial® has written many times about the effort to extract assets from the estate of J. Howard Marshall II, an effort started by Anna Nicole Smith in the mid-90s and continuing since then due to her estate’s ongoing legal action.  In June, after the case’s second trip to the Supreme Court, the justices upheld a ruling that gave Smith’s estate no part of the Marshall assets.
