Washington The Supreme Court ruled Monday that one-time stripper and Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith could pursue part of her late husband's oil fortune.

Justices gave new legal life to Smith's bid to collect millions of dollars from the estate of J. Howard Marshall II. Her late husband's estate has been estimated at as much as $1.6 billion.

Smith has been embroiled in a long running cross-country court fight with Marshall's youngest son, E. Pierce Marshall. The court's decision, which was unanimous, means that it will not end anytime soon.

The initial court which ruled on the estate held for her. It was in California where she lived. The second court which ruled for Marshall's son and against her was in Texas where he lived. The Supreme Court is upholding the initial court's ruling and appears proper since it is the surviving spouse that by law is to control the estate.
