Judge to Anna Nicole Jurors: Reveal Your Rx History!

7/20/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The jurors in the Anna Nicole Smith drug trial will be drilled about their own prescription drug use ... this according to the judge in the case.

0720_Anna_Nicole_getty_bn
Legally speaking, it's a pretty shocking decision by Judge Robert Perry.  Prospective jurors will have to reveal drug use details in a questionnaire, but the judge also said their names will not be revealed to attorneys in the case.

The judge has said he will dismiss any jurors who refuse to cough up their drug histories -- given their relevance to the case. 

The defendants -- Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, and Smith's ex-BF Howard K. Stern -- have pled not guilty to illegally funneling prescription drugs to the former Playboy model.

According to Larry Birkhead's testimony at the Daniel Smith's Inquest, Anna Nicole gave her son Ecstasy and methadone for his "back pain". Birkhead also said:"Anna WOULD PREFER THAT DANIEL DO DRUGS IN HER PRESENCE INSTEAD OF RUNNING AROUND EXPERIMENTING WITH HIS FRINDS."

Anna Nicole was directly responsible for Daniel's death. She knew that, that's why she took sedatives and finally died. GUILTY CONSCIENCE.


Anna Nicole's nanny told the Police that Anna STARVED her newborn child because she wanted a "sexy, slim baby" future model.

Anna Nicole was a bad mother who gave her son lethal drugs and who straved her baby.

Anna Nicole DID NOT love anybody. She only loved money, fame, drugs. Anna Nicole AKA Vickie Hogan used and abuse people to get what she wanted. SHE MADE HER OWN CHOICES, AND CHOICES WE MAKE ARE ULTIMATELY ARE OWN RESPONSIBILITY. Anna Nicole's debauchery caused her death.

I hope that the guilty are convicted. Its to late for Anna to be convicted of doctor shopping and transporting drug but maybe the fact that the doctor wrote rx's for Anna in false names and mailed them to the Bahama's and also made it so that Anna was high as a kite during her pregnancy will get convicted.

right-on jmo!!!!
Asking the jury to provide their history is insane! Finding anyone WITHOUT a drug history in L.A. is going to be very difficult!

Sounds like a smart judge who understands that not all prescription use of the same meds Ms. Smith was prescribed is overuse and that they must be calibrated to the individual patient's needs, dosage level, etc. I know so many people who take sleep, anxiety, ADD, etc, meds regularly and in highly varied amounts. And getting people to kick once they're already addicted can require very large amounts. I'm not a lawyer but after watching so many high-profile trials, empaneling some people with Rx histories will be, I think, good for the defense and will prevent appeals based on jury selection.

Prescription drug history is nobody's business but the patient and their physician. I wouldn't give them that information.

And LB has been proven to be a liar. Anna did not have a guilty conscience, if she did it wouldn't have taken her 5 months to commit suicide, she wouldn't have participated in a fake wedding ceremony, she wouldn't have left her son on a cold slab for a month, she wouldn't have bought a boat, she wouldn't have attended a wrestling match, I can go on. How convenient that she winds up dead so the excuse can be she had a guilty conscience, sorry your excuse for HS and the docs are going no where. You are right she made choices, she chose to trust HS and Dr. E. She may have chosen to do drugs but I don't believe she chose the combination that were prescribed to her, that was falsely entrusted to Dr. E and HS. They both were WARNED what would happen to Anna if she took those drugs but they ignored those warnings and shopped around until they got what they wanted going so far as to putting them in in HS name as well as others besides all the aliases she used.

Anna Nicole was a vile person inspite her good looks and "sweetness." She hurt people around her; legally, emotionally or they died. She was the kind of a girl who if she hadn't become rich, would have ended up in prison for murder. Her son Daniel was exposed to drugs, wild lifestyle and sex escapades. Daniel left regular high school because people told him his mother was a junkie wh@re. She got pregnant though she knew she was very sick drug addict. She was a selfish and self absorbed narcissist.

I can see where the docs have done wrong but what did Howard Stern do except make the drastic mistake of being her "do-boy". She treated him like **** oh the reality show. He should have run like hell from that train wreck of a human being. Thank God Larry has the baby. I guess oh Howard should have grown a pair and he would not be in this mess.

Bad news for the prosecutors who wanted jurors just like them – small-minded people easily swayed by lies, rumors and tabloid innuendo.

So the poor people who are called up for jury duty have to reveal their medical history to a bunch of ruthless lawyers all because some stupid selfish wanna-be starlet with fake boobs was wacked out of her mind. I hope she´s burning in the flames of everlasting perdition ... or at least really, really uncomfortable.

Anna Nicole was a nasty gold-digger who married a man aged 90 for his billions. She sued his family, though she received $6M and diamonds, cars, houses. Marshall family prevailed after a very long legal battle with a trashy floozy/gold-digger. Marshall's are the only real victims in Anna Nicole's story.
Anna N icole was a vile person inspite her good looks. She hurt people near her. They died or were hurt emotionally, financially or legally.
She was the kind of girl who if she hadn't become famous would have ended up in prison for murder.
