Casey Anthony Wins Partial Victory Against Texas EquuSearch

July 6, 2013

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.

Casey Anthony: Most-Searched News Story in 2011

November 30, 2011

Well…it appears that Casey Anthony was the most searched news story of 2011.

I guess I’m not surprised. Quite a few people stopped by hear to keep up with the trial.

From Time Magazine:

According to figures released by Bing, the most searched news story of the year in 2011 was the “Casey Anthony Trial,” outpacing “Osama Bin Laden Death.”  When it comes to the Internet, sensation is king.

And while celebrity deaths were (unfortunate) hot searches—“Michael Jackson Trial/Conrad Murray” was seventh on the list and “Any Winehouse Death” was fifth—natural disasters actually ruled the web. The popularity of “Hurricane Irene” (third), “Japan Earthquake/Tsunami” (fourth) and “Joplin Tornado” (sixth) illustrates our desire to know just how bad other people’s lives have turned.

Her bodyguards rushed her off in the middle of the night to another safe house, a prearranged safe hideout that was available in the event of such an emergency.”
