Casey Anthony: Civil Case Judge Recuses Himself
Judge Jose Rodriguez has stepped away from the Casey Anthony civil case, leaving open the question of whether she will have to submit to a formal interview by her accuser’s lawyers.
From CBS News:
Judge Jose Rodriguez made the announcement shortly after the 8 a.m. hearing began, reports CBS affiliate WKMG.
The move came after Anthony’s attorney called for a sidebar, where attorneys from both sides talked with the judge for about 15 minutes.
Gonzalez’s attorney, John Morgan, said he did not request the recusal, WKMG reports.
Morgan was expected to argue Friday that Anthony should be deposed before she is released from jail Sunday. He filed the motion Wednesday requiring Anthony attend a deposition either on July 19 or before Sunday’s scheduled release from the Orange County Jail.
