Casey Anthony has won a partial victory in bankruptcy court when a judge granted her request to dismiss charges brought against her by TexasEquuSearch, the company who helped search for her daughter Caylee back in 2008. The judge has given Texas EquuSearch 21 days to file another claim.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
Texas EquuSearch claims it wasted more than $100,000 searching for Caylee Marie Anthony in 2008, a debt, they say, Casey Anthony’s bankruptcy shouldn’t wipe clean.
EquuSearch was suing Anthony in state court before she declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy earlier this year, effectively halting the lawsuit. The search group says she wasted its time and money with a fruitless search for 2-year-old Caylee, who Anthony knew was actually dead.
But Anthony’s bankruptcy attorney, David Schrader, said Texas EquuSearch leaders proceeded with searches knowing Anthony had been charged with lying to law enforcement and murder. Texas EquuSearch also relied on information from Anthony’s parents.
