Florida Judge Is Unwilling To Take On Anna Nicole Case


Florida judge is unwilling to take on Anna Nicole case.

A Florida judge added more uncertainty to the paternity battle over former Playboy centerfold Anna Nicole Smith's baby on Friday when he said he wasn't sure he had jurisdiction over the case.

Broward County Family Court Judge Lawrence Korda said the Bahamas, where the former Playmate's 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn, was born, was probably the proper venue for deciding who fathered the child and who should have custody.

The hearing came a day after the melodramatic end of televised hearings in which another judge handed over Smith's remains for burial to the court-appointed guardian of her baby. The guardian decided she should be buried in the Bahamas.
