A federal appeals court says Anna Nicole Smith's estate will receive none of the more than $300 million that she claimed her late billionaire husband had promised her.
Smith had married Marshall the previous year and argued that he meant to leave her more than $300 million.
A Texas state court ruled against Smith and in favor of Marshall's son, who argued the model should receive nothing.
A federal bankruptcy court in Los Angeles later awarded her $474 million. A federal trial court later reduced that to $89 million.
Lawyers for the son's estate say they hope the litigation is at an end with Friday's ruling.
