Will the Persecution Never End? (Anna NIcole Smith Edition)

Anna Nicole skips meeting lawyer over paternity dispute: "SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Anna Nicole Smith didn't appear Monday for a meeting in the Bahamas requested by the lawyer for an ex-boyfriend who claims he is the father of her 6-week-old daughter.

Photographer Larry Birkhead has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles seeking a court order to demand Smith bring the baby to California for a paternity test. Her attorneys have argued the court does not have appropriate jurisdiction.

Debra Opri, a lawyer for Birkhead who traveled from Los Angeles to take a deposition from Smith in the Bahamas, said she would use Smith's nonappearance Monday to argue for dismissal of that challenge.

'We're letting her know if she wants to make it this way, we're not going to make it easy for her,' Opri said in a phone interview from Nassau."
