Detroit_s_bankruptcy_and_Anna_Nicole_Smi_792900000_20130730181339_320_240DETROIT (WXYZ) – The late Anna Nicole Smith could have an effect on Detroit’s bankruptcy.

A case she had before the US Supreme Court ended in a ruling that limits the power of bankruptcy judges.

A lot of attorneys are looking up the case of Stern v. Marshall – Anna Nicole Smith’s legal name was Vicky Lynn Marshall.

She’s remembered more for her buxom beauty than her legal briefs.

But a closer look at Stern v. Marshall shows the US Supreme Court just 2 years ago split 5-4 in ruling bankruptcy judges have limited power to decide state issues.

That’s important in the Detroit case because 32,000 retired and active Detroit city workers face cuts in their pensions.
