Former Broward County Judge Larry Seidlin is again attempting to capitalize on the hotly contested death of ANS with the release of his page turner. The Murder of Anna Nicole Smith, set to be released on June 16, is taking poetic license with its title. Much of the “evidence” collected in the book is reported to have come from Seidlin’s personal collection. For example, a month following Seidlin’s emotion-filled ruling on the 2007 ANS body custody hearing, TMZ reported her x-rays were mysteriously found in a dumpster behind his condo.
Seidlin retired from the bench in summer 2007 following a letter penned to Florida Governor Charlie Crist in which he states, “It is now time for me to devote more of my daily life to my own young family and to pursue the many opportunities that have been offered to me outside the judicial system and I have disregarded until now…While these opportunities are varied, they all share in common a further commitment to helping my fellow citizens through roles in the educational system, the media and nonprofit organizations.”
Lady Justice is sure his efforts with the book’s release are strictly philanthropic and not destined to line his pockets…..pause for eye rolling gesture.
