ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida attorney has filed an emergency motion seeking to require that Casey Anthony give a deposition in a civil suit brought by a woman who is suing her for defamation.
The motion filed Wednesday asks that Anthony be required to attend a deposition on July 19 or sometime before Sunday's scheduled release from the Orange County Jail. Anthony was acquitted last week of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. She was found guilty of four counts of lying to police, but with time served and good behavior credits, she won't serve out her four-year sentence.
The motion arises from a suit brought by Zenaida Gonzalez in 2008. She alleges that she incurred public ridicule after Anthony initially told investigators that a woman with the same name kidnapped Caylee.
