THese sternies are mean people who have no feelings    



Swims, Oh brother, give it a rest. For one thing, JerryBrown doesn't need any publicity to "FURTHER HIS CAREER" , uh, wasn't he a GOVENOR OF CAILIFORNIA? His resume would put to shame ALL of HKS little spinmachine imo lol . That's just typical nonsense , boy this is gonna be good ! When they stop stalling for time , and get on with it, that is.

Any normal, INNOCENT person would just want it OVER WITH. OH BUT NOT HOWARD, he knows what his future holds so he's going to milk this shi* for years !!!!! AND THAT IS MY OPINION which I have a right to express .

Ron Rale and Krista Barf are an embarassment to the legal profession.... the American People are not idiots... Jerry Brown has no political ambitions... He was already the Governor of California.... this is about morality and right and wrong... Krista and Lin Wood, if you hitch your wagon to the Devil... you are going to h@ll !!!

There is no doubt in my mind that Howard K. Stern facillitated the deaths of Daniel Smith and Anna Nicole Smith. If Howard, Krista, Ron Rale and Lin Wood take this to a jury, Howard will do hard time in a maximum security prision. Admit your mistakes and take a plea agreement. If you and your Hick Lawyer from Atlanta tell you different, they are selling Howard down the river for their own PR...

If you people could only see for yourself! Lawyers make me bitter ... It's not only the sharks that swim up close to the shores off California that make my skin creep-up. Akin to sharks, California lawyers prey on injury victims of personal injuries from crashes, other catastrophes, and job-related injury. They're out to suck out every last dime when they hit on a victim. Victims of injury needed to be protected not ripped off for the easy $$$$. The sharks smell blood; the lawyers smell blood-money! One thing thay have in common: same cold-blooded, lying, Satans. Vicky Hogan (ANS) was mentally incapacitated, physically bloated with child, and emotionally corrupted to the point of self-destruction yet, the two doctors, the lawyer, and the sperm shooter, just wouldn't let go of her peace of mind, her body, and now her Soul. We have heard their lies via the media. We have read their lies via the print. We have been subjected to their brutal attacks upon the parents of that foolish girl. I, am just one of many people who applaud the California Attorney General for prosecuting this team of killers. Evidentally there is a big difference between California and Florida.

that 'razzo is a RAT.    

50. And So It Begins – 4-7-2009

• Prosecutors placed on notice today to hand over discovery – now!
• HKS and Dr. E side-by-side in Court – attempt to separately arraign Dr. E.
• Original arraignment date for all of HKS/K/E re-established – May 13, 2009.
• As anticipated, the defense begins:

Steve Sadow, lead criminal defense attorney for HKS, addresses the media crush after HKS’s brief Court appearance. In command voice, Sadow puts JB on notice that he has flown in from Atlanta for the sole purpose of defending HKS from JB’s baseless claims and political ambition.

Sadow also decries the trashing of ANS and the invasion of her privacy that has occurred because of JB and vows not to let it stand.

Why no discovery yet from the prosecutors? Any ‘legitimate’ investigation of two years’ duration would have discovery all set and ready to go BEFORE criminal charges were even filed. Let’s all see the ‘evidence’ and the ‘witnesses’ that are criminal court trial ready – and let’s see them now!

You're ignorance is showing. BIG TIME. He WAS the Governor of Cali, and he wants to be again, so he's using this high profile hot topic case to get PUBLICITY. Get it? No, how could you? You're an idiot.

Any NORMAL INNOCENT person would want to go to trial as soon as possible in a trial that amounts to a witch hunt? Seriously? You really think that? If you were set up and arrested for a crime you didn't commit you'd want to go to trial right away? Wow, are you dumb. You have your opinion but you're stupid, so your opinion means squat, except that it's excellent proof of your utter stupidity. Way to share that with the group, IDIOT.

Oh I'm so glad Howard Stern got Steve Sadow from Atlanta. Sadow is a pig and won't do a thing for him that is unless Howard has more money than Sadow which I doubt. Sadow is the most over rated jerk of a lawyer there ever was. I wouldn't pay him $1.00 to help me out. He won't lift his pen off his desk

MY MY MY....I never found out if you were that Bald headed ex reporter fired from CNN or HKS ugly sister either one the following is something HKS cannot run from....Him or those Illegal prescribing pathetic excuses that call themselves a DR. IMO all of them are nothing but sh!t with degrees! Waste of Education!

THE LAW STATES IT! GOT IT!

43. Quote: 38. Guilt is all over HKS face and Dr E! They look like they have not slept in months. OPIATE Drugs prescribed in your name for anothers use.....DEATH RESULTING..... = GUILTY!

My husband is prescribed Oxy contin for pain due to Sever deterioration of his spine and 5 surgeries later, I asked the Dr if he could prescribe them in my name for him for privacy reasons .... Dr laughed and stated he was not Anna Nicole Smiths Drs and I was not my husbands lawyer and no one gets opiates in another name for privacy reasons or other reasons! Our @sses would have been in jail before she was buried if it were one of us!

Posted at 3:23PM on Apr 7th 2009 by THE RICH ARE ALWAY$ TACKY....AND IGNORANT!

Exactly right. And if you prove those over prescribed drugs were the proximate cause of her death, WHICH HAS ALREADY BEEN RULED IT WAS THE CAUSE OF HER DEATH, it's MANSLAUGHER, OR MURDER in Florida.

My husbands Prescription also reads CAUTION: Federal Law "PROHIBITS" the transfer of this drug to any person other than the "PATIENT" to "WHOM IT WAS PRESCRIBED". Other than dont crush swallow whole.

The CH was the drug that put Ann over the top to her death along with the other 9 or so in HKS name.

Have a Lovely Evening!

Where, pray tell, was Dr. Kapoor, the only one to REFUSE to fill a drug order for ANS, at today's photo op? He's indicted along with them why wasn't he there? I hope he's already turned on the two other creeps and is working for the State.

Wake up people!    

I don't know whether to feel sorry for Anna because she was so damned stupid and thought this guy actually loved her or to feel sorry for her because she was so desperate to believe someone actually loved her for who she was. I think I feel the worst for Dannielynn, not to have a mother.

Howard K. Stern should have been behind prison bars long ago yet the jerk is still walking the streets a free man. Anyone with half a brain could figure out what he did to that mother and her son. Larry Birkhead is about as bad because he's in cohoots with him on trying to steal the Marshall money for the baby. Guess they figured if they attached the name Marshall to her name they would have a better chance getting it They're just a bunch of grifters who lived off a drug addict by keeping her hooked on drugs and now ending up with all her assets & stealing a mansion in the Behamas.

OR How about this the Drs who put Anna in the hospital for that rehab are the Drs who prescribed her to her death via HKS! AND HOW DOES THE MEDIA GIVE HKS AND HIS DOINGS POSITIVE COVERAGE!!!! BITE ME!

Those of you who say howie loved anna are stupid.

He was "is" a hot shot jewish beverly hills lawyer and they just don't hook up with a blonde bimbo
drug addict unless there is big bucks in it for him.

Annas son was her only beneficiary to her estate so howie got rid of him first. .Then claimed to be the father of the girl so he could get the money..

Everything he did in this case indicates sociopathy.

He is a criminal and his actions are just about as far from basic human decency as one can get.
