Opinion by Judge BEEZER; Concurrence by Judge KLEINFELD.

BEEZER, Circuit Judge:

This case returns to us after the Supreme Court determined that we had construed too broadly the "probate exception" to our subject matter jurisdiction. Marshall v. Marshall, 547 U.S. 293, 126 S.Ct. 1735, 164 L.Ed.2d 480 (2006). Confident that we have subject matter jurisdiction over this case, id.; 28 U.S.C. § 1291, we turn to the merits of the longstanding and acrimonious dispute.
