Casey Anthony: Defamation Lawsuit Can Move Forward ‎

April 18, 2012

Judge Lisa Munyon has ruled that the defamation lawsuit against Casey Anthony can proceed.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Judge Lisa Munyon heard several hours of arguments last month on two motions — one filed by Anthony’s defense and the other by attorneys for Zenaida Gonzalez — but reserved ruling.

At issue is whether or not Anthony identified Gonzalez specifically enough when she talked to her parents in a jail visitation session.

The civil trial against Casey Anthony has been delayed until January of next year. Circuit Judge Lisa T. Munyon re-set the trial after Zenaida Gonzalez’s lawyer notified the court of a conflict with a previously scheduled case in Duval County.

From CBS News:

According to CBS affiliate WKMG, Judge Lisa Munyon announced Tuesday that the case, filed by Zenaida Gonzales against Anthony, will be pushed back until Jan. 2, 2013.

Attorneys on both sides of the case had been asking to delay the trial scheduled to begin in April, partially due to conflicts with other clients, according to WKMG.

Casey Anthony: Motion to Dismiss Denied

October 19, 2011

Judge Lisa Munyon has denied a request to dismiss a lawsuit against Casey Anthony. The lawsuit alleged that Anthony made numerous misrepresentations to Texas EquuSearch and its founder, Tim Miller.

From WESH:

Search group Texas EquuSearch, which aided in the search for Caylee Anthony in 2008, filed a lawsuit against Casey Anthony in July.

As a result, volunteers engaged in “extensive, costly and time-consuming searches for Caylee,” the lawsuit claims. “The time and effort dedicated to this search diverted resources from TES’ ability to provide its search and rescue operations to other families.”

Anthony’s attorney filed a motion to dismiss, saying the suit lacked any merit. Judge Lisa Munyon denied the motion Wednesday.

Judge Lisa Munyon denied the request, saying Anthony could be deposed from an undisclosed location by video link, and it is not to be broadcast.

Anthony’s attorney, Charles Green, indicated he will file a motion for the video and transcript of the deposition to be sealed and not released to the public.
