Casey Anthony: Another Lawyer Jumps Ship

August 16, 2010

It appears that Brad Conway is the latest attorney in the case of Casey Anthony to step down, this according to a statement released early this morning.

From WESH:

WESH 2 News has learned that the attorney for Caylee’s grandparents George and Cindy Anthony, Brad Conway, will no longer be serving as the couple’s attorney. He turned in a resignation letter Monday morning.

According to sources, Conway’s move comes as a result of a new filing by Anthony’s defense in their ongoing dispute with Texas Equusearch.

From My Fox Orlando:

Early Monday Conway told FOX 35′s Holly Bristow this has nothing to do with the Anthony’s or anything they’ve done. Instead he said it has everything to do with Casey’s attorney José Baez.

Conway said that a motion filed by the defense last week made regarding documents on 4,000 Texas Equusearch volunteers, Baez claimed that Conway was given unrestricted access to look at those documents but only if he got the Anthony’s to sign a waiver of conflict of interest.

Casey Anthony: EquuSearch Records Hearing on the Horizon?

April 26, 2010

It appears that Texas EquuSearch are fed up with playing games with Anthony’s defense attorneys and are pushing for a hearing on EquuSearch records.

From The TV Guy:

Anthony defense attorneys Jose Baez and Cheney Mason visited the office of Mark NeJame, attorney for Texas EquuSearch, on Friday. The Anthony attorneys had gone to look at records of EquuSearch volunteers for the first time after an eight-month battle.

The defense had wanted photocopies of the records, but the judge twice ruled that the defense had to view them in NeJame’s office.

“The attorneys stormed out after the media showed up,” WESH anchor Martha Sugalski said of Friday’s visit.

From WESH:

For more than eight months, officials with Texas EquuSearch have waged an epic legal battle have fought to keep private records of Central Florida residents who answered their call for help.

A source said EquuSearch plans to file legal paperwork to have the judge order Anthony’s defense to review the records and be done with it.

EquuSearch attorney Mark NeJame would not comment on what the group is planning.

Casey Anthony: Hearing Taking Place This Morning

April 5, 2010

A hearing is under way this morning as Casey Anthony’s defense team hopes to obtain records from Texas EquuSearch. The team would like Judge Stan Strickland to allow its team to review all of EquuSearch’s records.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

During today’s hearing lawyers will be arguing over access to more records for the volunteer group that helped looked for Casey Anthony’s daughter, Caylee Marie, in 2008.

Last year, Orange Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland ordered EquuSearch to allow the defense team to review its records of those 32 people.

Casey Anthony’s defense team says they have found other volunteers who were not on the list but did search the area where the remains were found and didn’t see anything unusual. These witnesses may be key for defense attorneys who may argue at trial that someone other than Casey Anthony left the toddler’s body in the woods.

Casey Anthony: X Marks the Spot

March 24, 2010

Tim Miller of EquuSearch has stated recently, and in the past, that he knew they were close to finding Caylee Anthony’s body. But, it appears that from documents released yesterday, they were closer than any of us thought.

From WFTV:

From what Miller says, he suspected George and Cindy thought Casey knew more, too, judging by their bizarre actions. Miller told detectives that George Anthony’s friend, a former law enforcement officer like George, told Miller that Casey held the answer to Caylee’s whereabouts, but said Casey wouldn’t talk. George’s friend used a very unflattering word to describe Casey.

“And his words were, ‘But the f****** b**** won’t talk,’” Miller told investigators during an interview on December 12, 2009 (read transcript).

Miller told detectives, at one point after Casey had bonded out of jail, he felt he was close to making progress with her; he, George and Casey were seated at the table with a map and George pressed her.

“’Casey, where do they need to start searching? Would you make a spot on the map? Would you make an X?’” Miller told investigators George asked Casey.

“Cindy really got angry then,” Miller told the investigators. “Casey got up and went back to her room and I, I looked at George and I think I just kind of threw my hands up and I said, ‘You know, I’m sorry. We really didn’t come to cause any trouble,’ or something to that effect.”

Casey Anthony: Some Bizarre Behavior in the Anthony Home

March 23, 2010

Hal Boedeker has a great post this evening which discusses Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch and the actions that he witnessed while he was in and out of the Anthony home back in 2008.

For the whole post, please click on the link below.

From The TV Guy:

George Anthony had nearly persuaded daughter Casey to identify where Caylee’s remains were — until Cindy Anthony stepped in, WFTV-Channel 9 reported tonight.

The station highlighted that incident from summer 2008 described by Tim Miller, founder of Texas EquuSearch. That group’s volunteers searched for the toddler’s remains, which a meter reader found in December 2008.

“From Tim Miller’s account, it appears that Casey knew more than she let on,” WFTV anchor Liz Artz said.

“From what Miller says, he suspected George and Cindy thought Casey knew more, judging by their bizarre actions,” WFTV’s Kathi Belich said. “George pressed Casey to mark a spot on the map to search. Cindy blew up and made Miller leave the house, and Casey went to her room.”

Casey Anthony: More Evidence Released

March 23, 2010

Looks like a bunch of new evidence has been released.

I mentioned the witness list in my last post but there’s quite a lot more on this busy day.

Nothing Earth shattering, but still worth discussing.

From WESH:

The nearly 1,000 pages of evidence included results for hair samples, photos from the wooded area where Caylee Anthony was found, e-mails and interview transcripts.

One e-mail sent to Texas EquuSearch leader Tim Miller was from a volunteer who encouraged investigators to take a closer look at the woods off Suburban Drive in east Orange County near the Anthony family home. (Read Davis’ Statement)

Several interview transcripts, including interviews with Texas EquuSearch volunteers, were also included in the documents released.

One transcript between investigators and Miller found the Texas EquuSearch leader recalling being inside the Anthony family home with Casey Anthony, George Anthony and Cindy Anthony. Miller said he pulled out a map and George Anthony asked Casey Anthony to point to a location on the map where she thought volunteers should search for Caylee.

Miller said the question infuriated Cindy Anthony and she asked the EquuSearch volunteers to leave the home. Casey Anthony then went back to her bedroom.
