Broward Circuit Judge Lawrence Korda is questioning whether his court has jurisdiction over the paternity issues in the case of the late celebrity tabloid icon Anna Nicole Smith and her infant daughter, Dannielynn.

During a Friday morning hearing in his chambers, Korda asked what “jurisdiction there could possibly be” in Broward County, Fla., to oversee the paternity testing. Several men, including California attorney Howard K. Stern and Los Angeles photographer Larry Birkhead, claim to have fathered Smith’s 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern. Birkhead filed this paternity suit in a California court and in Broward Circuit Court.
