TRO Issued In Anna Nicole Breast Implant Tape Case

Howard K. Stern, the executor of Anna Nicole Smith's estate, has obtained a temporary restraining order forbidding the physician who performed the late celebrity's breast implant surgery to engage in the "sale,distribution or dissemination of the videotape" showing the surgery. Mr. Stern says the physician did not have Ms. Smith's consent to tape her during the procedure. Dr. Gerald Johnson (or according to the website www.celebtv.com, his wife) had tried to sell the tape to a dealer in Los Angeles. Read more here. See the documents here.
