Anna Nicole Smith's Body to Remain in Florida

Arthur_2Earlier today, February 26, 2007, Judge Seidlin refused to reconsider his ruling giving control over Anna Nicole Smith's body to Dannielynn's guardian.

Virgie Arthur, Anna's mother, filed an appeal with the Florida 4th District Court of Appeal which agreed to hear the case.  The case is on a fast track due to the deterioration of Anna's body.  The attorneys in the case have until 2:00 p.m. EST tomorrow, February 27, 2007, to respond to Virgie's appeal.

The appellate court also issued a stay preventing Anna's body from being removed from Florida.

Virgie claims that it would be too inconvenient for her to travel to the Bahamas to visit Anna's grave.
