Of All the Cases the Court Could Take
Conventional wisdom has it that appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States is too unlikely to be treated as a viable possibility. Read this, and then tell me whether the truth is really that simple:
Stern v. Marshall, No. 10-179. Was the late Anna Nicole Smith's counterclaim for tortious interference with her expectancy of a $300 million gift or inheritance sufficiently related to her son-in-law's defamation claim against her in her bankruptcy proceeding to constitute a "core proceeding" within the bankruptcy court's jurisdiction as construed in Northern Pipeline Constr. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. 50 (1982)?That’s right. The Supreme Court granted review in 14 cases today, and among them them is an appeal from the shenanigans surrounding Anna Nicole Smith. Again.
