Anna Nicole Smith's two doctors and her lawyer-boyfriend face arraignment on drug conspiracy charges with a judge expected to set a date away for their trial.

The doctors due in court Friday also are fighting a medical board effort to suspend their licenses to practice pending trial.

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Howard K. Stern are accused of conspiring to illegally provide the late Playboy model with sedatives and opiates before she died. A judge found probable cause for them to stand trial after a three-week preliminary hearing. They are not charged with causing her death and say they were trying to help her.

Smith died of an accidental overdose of at least nine medications in February 2007 at a Florida hotel.
