That’s what her new attorney Charles Greene is predicting. Agreed, I do see the writing on the wall. Morgan & Morgan have the Really Big Show scheduled for early January 2013, that’s if we all don’t perish on December 21, 2012.
It’s a good thing that Judge Munyon didn’t schedule the trial a couple of weeks earlier or Casey would be blamed for that too.
I’ve been sitting back waiting for the next viable Anthony story. We’ve seen the Oh-So-Intriguing Casey Anthony video introducing her new dog, Smooch. We’ve been through the media fanfare of how the video was released and the mystery of who released it and most recently the latest announcement that Casey Anthony will soon be baptized all awhile she hides out from the hog wild investigators of Morgan & Morgan law firm.

So I’ll bite.
This thread is open for more Casey Anthony drama as I’ll do what I can to keep us posted on updates. Stay tuned for the exciting prelude to “Casey Anthony Part 2!”


Meet Zenaida Gonzalez, the plaintiff

Before she heard of Casey

After she heard of Casey

That’s Zenaida Gonzalez without the middle name Fernandez. She’s the plaintiff suing Casey Anthony for defamation of character because in Casey’s first police report she stated that on June 16, 2008 she left Caylee at Sawgrass Apts. in the hands of a person named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez. It just so happened that the plaintiff Zenaida Gonzalez visited Sawgrass Apartments on June 17, 2008, the day after. Due to over zealous investigators quick to make unfounded accusations released to the media the woman’s name and personal information as a potential suspect. No one would have seen a picture of the plaintiff had the investigators not jumped to conclusions.

He says “She has been sucked into it. She’s the one police came to and questioned

her about kidnapping and murder, for goodness sake”


Meet John Morgan, attorney for Gonzalez

John Morgan

A highly recognizable attorney of south-central Florida. Highways are cluttered with billboards along with his picture and advertisements as a personal injury lawyer. His motto “For the People”, especially people who can earn him money, fame, fortune and the national attention he plans to gain by representing Zenaida Gonzalez v. Casey Anthony in a defamation lawsuit.

Meet John Dill, attorney for Gonzalez

John Dill

He says “We’ll track her down. Again, she’s not in Nevada, Bob. We’re going to find her if we need to, and we will.”

As of March 24, 2012, Mr. Dill has not found the elusive Casey Anthony.

Note* Finding Casey Anthony is quite a conundrum for Zenaida Gonzalez’s attorneys. Without their star defendant, the “Really Big Show” might not be so big. Bill Sheaffer, legal analysts for WFTV says “If she’s served and that subpoena is a valid service of process, then she is required to be at this trial.”  Anthony’s attorney disagrees. He says that in any civil lawsuit, the defendant is not required by law to attend trial. Nonetheless the search goes on. “Where is Casey?”

After being acquitted of all charges associated with her daughter's death

Since July 5, 2011, the day Casey Anthony was acquitted of all charges involving with the death of her daughter, she has been bombarded with several civil lawsuits. She has since been forced to live in hiding due to death threats towards her and her attorneys.


Meet Charles Greene, attorney for Casey Anthony

Charles Greene

He says “This case is so expensive for Orange County because people are already lining up for tickets for Casey Anthony 2′ as the trial is now being billed” in an interview with Bill Sheaffer, legal analyst.  He goes on to say, “Casey’s notoriety is being hijacked for the civil court case brought by Gonzalez.”

Mr. Greene’s area of law and expertise is in criminal defense, civil litigation, trial practice and products liability. He is currently representing Casey Anthony in the upcoming civil trial Gonzalez v. Anthony.


Without a doubt, by the end of the year Morgan and Morgan will have pulled every publicity stunt and unexpected press conference known to man. 

Rest assured by Christmas 2012, we will be hyped and ready for

Casey Anthony Part 2!









July 7, 2011, 2 days after Casey Anthony was acquitted, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch put the word out to the public. Should he or should he not file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez? He claims he spent over $100,000 searching for Casey’s 2 ½ year old daughter, Caylee Marie. Perhaps he’s claiming this because Casey Anthony or Jose Baez asked for his help.
Where are the records of this phone call? Where is the documentation, a letter, an email? I’ve searched the documents released and haven’t found one correspondence between Casey Anthony and Tim Miller.
Did Jose Baez contact him? He hasn’t mentioned a call or an email on this matter. The only thing that Jose Baez asked Tim Miller was for access to TES records to see which searchers searched where.

This information was very important to Jose Baez because the remains of the victim were found in an area where Tim Miller searched.  Even if it wasn’t the exact location, her remains were in very close proximity to where his searchers had looked but Tim Miller quickly lawyered up and those records remained sealed for over a year and are partially sealed today. Baez was only allowed to view the records. For whatever reason, we, the public may never know just how close Tim and his searchers were to Area A, the location where Caylee’s remains were officially found on December 11, 2008.

Tim Miller, founder of a non-profit organization Texas EquuSearch was deterred by high water while searching this area of Suburban Drive as he searched in early August of 2008, a week or so later, he left Orlando after losing a 4 wheeler while attempting to search the Wooded Area which is 14 houses away from the suspect. He didn’t return until August 30th when he set up base at a local Holiday Inn.

Thanks to the Sunshine Laws and Orlando local media, it’s public knowledge that it was Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony who called Tim Miller, asking for his help. And she wanted Tim Miller to look for a live missing Caylee, not a deceased toddler. Apparently Tim Miller paid no attention to Cindy nor to Casey’s farewell to him because he in all of his searches for Caylee, never searched for a live missing child.

After the shocking verdict was read on July 5, 2011, while on CNN, Tim Miller addressed the public.  He was seeking public approval because he knew the staunch opinators would not be pleased with anyone who profitted off of Caylee Anthony’s death.  So he took it to a vote.  Should he sue Casey Anthony?


People were asked to call, email, or write to Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search & Recovery
His address was posted publicly for all who wanted to help Tim Miller decide.

On July 12, 2011, Only days before her release from jail, Casey Anthony got the news. Tim Miller had filed a civil lawsuit against her for $112,000, the cost for his search team. Tim Miller claims it was Casey’s lies that cost him this money.
He claims that when he was leaving the Anthony home, Casey said to him, “Well thanks for being here, I know she’s alive out there somewhere… So please bring her back.”
This was the typical mantra for Casey at the time and more importantly, those words did not change Tim Miller’s type of search. When he came back a couple of weeks later, he continued searching for a body and not a live child. That’s why he took on board, 4,000 searchers, to search for remains.

During this time frame there was Tropical Storm Fay threatening Florida, entering the Gulf of Mexico.
During seven days in Florida, August 18–24, 2008, eleven people died and thousands of homes plus roads were damaged, from 60 mph (97 km/h) winds and rain waters up to 5 feet (1.5 m) deep,
August 19, TS Fay was in EVERGLADES CITY, Florida.

The Civil Lawsuit

Tim Miller refuses to cooperate with Casey Anthony. On December 20, 2011 well after making his decision, he IS suing Casey Anthony, yet he doesn’t show up in Orlando for his deposition because he whined, “Casey didn’t answer his questions.”
Casey Anthony’s attorney had this to say about Tim Miller.

“From my perspective, if you’re suing, who should have to answer questions first?” Anthony attorney Charles Greene asked WKMG-Channel 6. “The defendant or the person claiming they have some sort of legitimate case?”

The above mentioned matter has been recently resolved and Judge Munyon has decided Casey will answer two questions from a list of 15.

• Admit that you did not observe or hear George Anthony call 911 at any time to report that he or you had discovered that Caylee Marie Anthony had drowned in the swimming poll at your parents’ house on or about June 16, 2008.
• Admit that you were aware in September 2008 and October 2008 that EquuSearch was conducting searches for your daughter, Caylee.

Subsequently, Casey Anthony has denied both statements. Hopefully this will compel Tim Miller to follow through with his promise and answer questions posed to him by Anthony’s attorney Charles Greene.

As for $112,000, remember, Texas Equusearch acted as an agent of the State or Florida during the course of its business in Florida, receiving payment, equipment, support, and directions from Florida law enforcement agencies. There was also a time when Tim Miller was being considered as a material witness for the defense.


On August 5, 2008, a Fox News crew filmed a search of The Wooded Area. The video shows no body or suspicious objects, and cameramen reported no suspicious odor.
On the Record with Greta Van Susteren (FOX News television broadcast Dec. 17, 2008)
available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gNJdZrgg. This video can no longer be found.

On August 11th, 12th and 13th,2008, Orange County law enforcement responded to calls from Roy Kronk, a county employee who claimed to have seen a suspicious bag in the Wooded Area. An Orange County Deputy Sheriff searched the spot and found nothing suspicious.

On August 18, 2008, an Orange County Deputy Sheriff responded to a call from one Keith Williams, who claimed to have found possible evidence in the Wooded Area. No body or remains were found.

On August 30, 2008, Texas EquuSearch (“TES”), a Texas 501© (3) corporation, arrived in Orlando from its headquarters in Dickinson, TX, to search for the missing child. TES set up its base of operations at the Holiday Inn at 5750 T.G. Blvd, Orlando,FL. Personnel from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division (“CID”) were present at the command center.

On August 31, 2008, TES and OCSO began their search for the missing child Caylee Marie Anthony. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Critical Incident Management Team (“CIMT”) evaluated the organization of the TES search effort and supplied the searchers with bottled water. Id. Cmdr Matthew Irwin, Sgt John Allen, and Det. Cpl. Yuri Melich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 1, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search of “areas of interest” provided by OCSO. Id at 3. Sgt. Allen and Det. Melich represent CID. Id at 7.

On September 2, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search. CIMT set up a tent at TES’s command center. Id at 3. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, and Det. Melich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 3, 2008, then-Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary provided TES with $5,000 of OCSO funds. See Appendix F. TES and law enforcement continued their search. See Appendix E at 3. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, and Det. Melich represented CID. Id at 7. Also on this date, Miss Anthony was released from custody following her August 29 arrest on economic charges.

On September 4, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, Det. Melich, and Tanya DePalmo represented CID; a large team of CIMT and Agriculture personnel also participated in the joint search. Id at 7.

On September 5, 2008, TES and OCSO personnel continued their search. Id at3. Sgt. Allen and Det. Yurich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 6, 2008, TES and OCSO personnel continued their search. Id at 3. Chief Ron Stucker, Det. Melich, and Investigator Kari Roderick represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 7, 2008, TES and OCSO continued their search. In the afternoon, investigative crime writer David Lohr posted to his website that he had searched The Wooded Area with TES, writing that “they [TES} were in the process of completing a thorough sweep of the area. “See Appendix G. That evening, TES called off their search for Caylee Marie Anthony. Amy L. Edwards, Heat, Bugs Don’t Deter Caylee Anthony Search Volunteers, Orlando Sentinel, Sept. 8, 2008, available at
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/com/community/news/wintergarden/orl-caylee0808sep08,0,311925.story. No remains were found.

In October of 2008, a former TES team leader informed Orange County Sergeant John Allen that, while searching with TES in September, she had searched the area where Caylee Anthony’s remains were ultimately found. See Appendix B at 2:25.

On October 14, 2008, Miss Anthony was indicted in the present case and taken into custody.

On November 8, 2008, TES began a new search. Orange County law Enforcement loaned TES a helicopter to use in the search. Updates from Search for Caylee Marie, WESH-2 Orlando, available at http://www.wesh.com/news/17929243/detail.html  TES searchers did not find Caylee Anthony.

On November 15, 2008, one Dominic Casey, a private investigator under contract to Miss Anthony’s parents, George and Cynthia Anthony, conducted a search of the Wooded Area accompanied by James Hoover, another private investigator. See Appendix H at 12.

On December 2, TES opened an Orlando chapter of Texas EquuSearch. Texas EquuSearch Opens Orlando Branch, CF News-13, available at http://www.chnews13.com/News/Local/2008/12/2equusearch_opens_orlando_branch.html

On December 11, 2008, law enforcement responded to a call from Roy Kronk stating that he had discovered a human skull at the edge of the Wooded Area, just off of Suburban Drive.  When law enforcement arrived on the scene, they found the skeletonized remains of a small child at the edge of the Wooded Area, just off of Suburban Drive. The State has since identified the remains as those of the child Caylee Marie Anthony.



I don’t dislike Tim Miller. I think his initial intentions were honorable but instead of him being mad at himself for not finding Caylee, I’d rather know that he’s pondering this and realizing that maybe, just maybe, her remains were not in that area when he searched. As for the money, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy if he’d only say it….

“maybe the child Caylee Anthony wasn’t in The Wooded Area when I searched”

And then I’d say “Pay The Man!








Such as “What is your legal name?”

According to WESH.com Zenaida Gonzalez will be deposed today. As expected, there is no public outcry or court petitions to have it aired on the public airways.
There are no updates coming from the Morgan & Morgan website to report and none from Casey Anthony’s lawyer, Charles Greene.

Obviously, Mr. Greene’s intentions are clear. Zenaida Gonzalez is not his hired clown to entertain us. Nor is a legal deposition in a civil lawsuit his personal 3-ring circus to garner fame and fortune.


It is the American judicial system at work.


ORLANDO, Fla. — The woman who filed a lawsuit against Casey Anthony for defamation will be deposed Tuesday despite attempts to keep her from answering questions.

Attorneys for Zenaida Gonzalez wanted her deposition pushed back until Anthony answered questions without invoking her Fifth Amendment right.
A judge denied that request.
Gonzalez claims Anthony ruined her reputation by claiming a woman with the same name kidnapped her daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Let the Dissecting Begin

Page 5 of 51

Thank you. Are you familiar with the person by the name of Zenaida Gonzalez?

On behalf of Miss Anthony and pursuant to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1 of the Florida Constitution, I instruct her not to answer that question, and I object on the grounds it could tend to incriminate.

MR. MORGAN: Chuck, she’s going to have to invoke that right herself, so I’m going to ask —

MR. GREENE: No, she’s not. I’ve just invoked it.


And so it begins, John Morgan needed Charles Greene to explain the 5th Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1 of the Florida Constitution! He wasn’t too happy about Casey’s attorney answering for her. He wanted Casey to take the 5th in her own voice which proves to me that he planned to have this video conference released in the press for fame and fortune in hopes of winning this case in the court of public opinion.
John Morgan should reflect on just how effective this worked out for Orange County in the first degree murder trial of Casey Anthony. Thankfully the presiding Judge Lisa Munyun of this civil matter denied Morgan & Morgan’s motion to have this video conference released to the media.

This is a typical response coming from Casey Anthony’s counsel said to be heard over 60 times

We object and assert Miss Anthony’s privileges against civil self-incrimination pursuant to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1 of the Florida Constitution and instruct her not to answer.



The Objections

Objection One

Mr Greene:  On behalf of Miss Anthony, we assert her privileges against self-incrimination pursuant to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1 to Florida Constitution and instruct her not to answer.

Objection Two

Mr. Greene: I assert the attorney-client privilege on behalf of Miss Anthony and instruct her not to answer the question to the extent anything she knows came from communications from her counsel.

Mr. Morgan: Thank you.


Casey Anthony took the 5th when asked…

Mr. Morgan:
Miss Anthony, was there ever a person named “Zanny” or “Zenaida” who was a nanny to your child Caylee Anthony?

Mr. Greene:

When asked this question, Mr. Greene objected, attorney-client privilege

MR. MORGAN: And you heard José Baez in his opening statement state that you had made up the story of Zenaida Gonzalez; isn’t that true?

MR. GREENE: Just a moment while we discuss whether to assert a privilege.
(Off-the-record discussion was had.)

It was decided by Casey’s counsel that this was an attorney-client privilege issue.

Mr. Green allowed Casey to answer in her own voice. She said yes. Mr. Morgan then asked, “Was he being truthful when he said that or was he lying to the court?
Mr. Greene quickly objected on two accounts, one this was a compound question, two, this fell under attorney-client privilege.
Obviously, Mr. Morgan was attempting to slander Jose Baez for defending his client. Everyone knows, including “Mr. John Morgan” that the opening statement does not have to be proven in court.

At this juncture, Mr. Morgan retreated, “All right, Let me – let me -”

Page 20 of 51
Mr. Morgan asked “And, Miss Anthony, you’re aware that Zenaida Gonzalez filled out an application to live at Sawgrass Apartments, are you not?”

How would Casey know this? ZG filled out an application supposedly on June 17, 2008, not on June 16th, the date Casey claimed she dropped off Caylee, unless of course Casey is psychic.
As we would expect, Charles Greene objected on Casey’s behalf, asserting the 5th Amendment.

Mr. Morgan posed the next question. “Miss Anthony, the application that Zenaida Gonzalez filled out at Sawgrass Apartments enabled you to know a lot about her personal life, did it not?

Is this what ZG’s attorneys are contending, that Casey somehow had access to this information and that’s how she knew the names of Zenaida’s daughters? I’m not able to follow this logic because, firstly, the guest card was dated the day after Casey claimed to visit Sawgrass Apts, secondly, the only way that Casey would have access to her information is if she knew someone who worked at the Sawgrass office. Does Casey know Amanda Macklin?

When Morgan asked this, “Miss Anthony, are you aware that the police knew specific things about Ms. Gonzalez, including her children, the type of car she had that only have been provided to them by you?
Mr. Greene objected to the question’s form asserting; calls for hearsay, assumes facts not in evidence and that cannot be proven. In addition, calls for attorney-client privilege and the 5th.
I seem to recall that the police were feeding Casey with information at this time.
Mr. Morgan follows up with “Miss Anthony, are you aware that Ms Gonzalez was kicked out of her apartment complex because of the false information you gave to the police?
It was always my understanding that ZG lived in a motel room, not an apartment. I hope Mr. Morgan has proof to back up this claim.
Mr. Morgan should also be able to prove that ZG lost her job because of this misunderstanding which shouldn’t be very hard to do. I’m sure the Judge would accept a notarized statement from ZG’s employer stating the reason for her dismissal.

Mr. Morgan then asked, ” Miss Anthony, are you aware that the result of your false information to the police that Ms Gonzalez received phone calls threatening to kill her children, her two little girls? Were you aware of that, Miss Anthony?”
This assertion begs the question; does Ms Gonzalez have proof of this allegation? Are there phone records and reports to law enforcement that this occurred?

On page 26 of 51
“Let’s talk a little bit about the description you gave to the police of Ms Gonzalez. Miss Anthony, could you describe for us today what the description of Zenaida Gonzalez was that you gave to the police?”

“Objection. The statements of Miss Anthony speak for themselves. In addition, we
object and assert Miss Anthony’s privileges against self-incrimination pursuant to the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1 of the Florida Constitution and instruct her not to answer.”

In my unprofessional opinion, I was thinking the same because this information is easily found in documented transcripts from the murder trial. Why would Mr. Morgan want to ask a question that he already has the answer to unless he’s trying to invoke an answer from Casey in order to discriminate her if she were to give a different description. A simple error in the description would make Casey seem untruthful which is ridiculous because this is the reason for the civil suit so I’m sure this was his intention. Yes Mr. Morgan, we all know she’s a liar. Remember the jury found her guilty on 4 charges of lying to law enforcement.

On page 28 of 51
In the deposition Casey again exercised her right under the 5th Amendment and did not answer this question,
“Have you ever seen this person before?”
as he pointed to a picture of his client, Zenaida Gonzalez.

After this response, Mr. Morgan comes back with this question.

So, Miss Anthony, in fact that is the Zenaida Gonzalez you were referring to when you made the false statements to police, is it not?

MR. GREENE: Objection to the form, among other things, compound and argumentative.

Indicative of Mr. Morgan’s propensity to badger Casey Anthony as she did not say that this was the person she was referring to when she spoke with the police.

However, Mr. Morgan did quote Casey statement, “that girl down in Kissimee” which I found strange. I’m now left wondering if Casey has seen this woman before.  Mr. Greene quickly objected to the form, compound and improper predicate and again took 5th on behalf of his client.

Interesting Questions that went unanswered that MORGAN asked:

    • .Miss Anthony, isn’t it true that there was a time in this murder investigation that the police met with you and you had the opportunity to exonerate Zenaida Gonzalez if you had wanted to?
      • Miss Anthony, isn’t it true that behind closed doors with the police and outside the view of the media you had this opportunity but decided not to take this opportunity and exonerate our client, Zenaida Gonzalez?
      • Miss Anthony, after you saw a picture of Zenaida Gonzalez shown to you by police, you then spoke to your mother about that, did you not?
      • Miss Anthony, have you ever been to Jay Blanchard Park?
      • Miss Anthony, what does timer 55 mean?

On page 33 of 51
Mr. Morgan asked, “Miss Anthony, when you spoke to your mother, you told her, in fact, that that was Zenaida Gonzalez, didn’t you?” Obviously Mr. Morgan misuses the word “fact”. There are no documents that support this accusation that I’ve found.
He continues to elaborate on the issue with the next question, “Miss Anthony, when you spoke to your mother and told her that that was the nanny for Caylee Marie Anthony, you knew, Miss Anthony, that your mother was then going to go out and publish your false statements to the media, to the press and to the public, did you not?

Apparently, Mr. Morgan believes that this is the “money shot”. This is the point that he’s hoping will bring in the dough but in reality, Casey’s mother, Cindy Anthony has never reported to the media that this particular Zenaida Gonzalez was the nanny, although, it is a fact that there are several women living in Florida who are named Zenaida Gonzalez. The fact is, Casey did inform law enforcement that this Zenaida was not the person she left Caylee with at the Sawgrass Apartments. Had she not told them this, I’m sure the police would have pursued and investigated this Zenaida Gonzalez much more than they did. Remember this Zenaida Gonzalez was exonerated by Yuri Melich within 3 days. Once the police discovered that this ZG wasn’t a suspect, that’s when law enforcement went full force on Casey Anthony as the murderer. Just as most of us know now, law enforcement spent very little time looking for a live Caylee.
I’m almost certain that the smell of decomposition in the Casey’s car that was parked in the driveway of the Anthony home, told them that Caylee Anthony was deceased.

On page 43 of 51
Mr. Morgan asks, “Miss Anthony, do you consider yourself a good mother to Caylee Marie Anthony? Mr. Greene’s objection to this question was stellar. Not only did he object as it as being self-incriminating, he asserted the question was argumentative designed solely for harassment.
Mr. Greene used the same basis for objection when Mr. Morgan asked, “Did your daughter die as a result of drowning?” Not only was it outside the scope and not in form, it was designed solely for harassment, much like the entire deposition. Quite frankly, there were only a handful of questions posed to Casey Anthony that actually pertained to his client Zenaida Gonzalez inability to earn a living which I thought was the basis for her civil suit.

Mr. Morgan ironically ended the deposition on this note

“Miss Anthony, because we do plan to have motions before a court and because out motives here are not to harass you or to embarrass you or to turn this proceeding into a circus, I conclude and suspend – not end – I’m going to go ahead and suspend this deposition taken of you. I hope that you and your counsel understand that we did not ask questions that many people wished we did concerning your employment history then and now, where you live, where you stay. We did not do this – we did this, this deposition, in pursuit of truth and not in pursuit of sensation.

There were two words that struck me in his closing. The word “circus” because as we all know the George, Cindy and Lee Anthony depositions were in fact a hilarious, colossal, ridiculous circus and the word “people” and the word “sensation” in the same sentence is a Freudian slip because in reality that is precisely what Mr. Morgan wanted, a “sensational circus for the people.”
Unfortunately for Morgan & Morgan, the Judge squashed his big idea and decided that the video of Casey Anthony’s deposition was not necessary for public viewing.

Judge Lisa Munyon is one smart lady.


*Note: John Morgan filed an “Emergency Motion For Protective Order Regarding And Objection To Taking Deposition Of Plaintiff, Zenaida Gonzalez, Before Casey Anthony’s Deposition Is Completed” yesterday, November 7, 2011 to stop Casey Anthony’s attorney Charles Greene from deposing his client Zenaida Gonzalez claiming Casey Anthony refused to answer most of John Morgan’s questions. The Zenaida Gonzalez’s deposition is scheduled for November 22, 2011 @ 9:00 am.
*oops, In the motion, John Morgan misquoted the date of Casey Anthony’s deposition as November 8, 2011. The correct date of her deposition was October 8, 2011.
Apparently, even seasoned, experienced attorneys are not always perfect in writing motions to the court.

*Note: Casey Anthony denied speaking to her brother Lee Anthony within the last 6 months and she has not spoken with her parents George and Cindy Anthony since October 14, 2008.

*Note: Andrew Chmelir is co-counsel to Mr. Greene. He and Charles Greene were in the room with Casey Anthony during this deposition via video conference.

*Note: John Morgan was asking the questions, his law partners, Matthew Morgan and John Dill were also in the room during this deposition via video conference.

*Note: As to be expected, on November 4, 2011, Matthew Morgan filed a Motion to Compel Answers to Deposition Questions. No ruling as of this date, Monday, November 07, 2011.






With October just 2 months away and Casey Anthony gallivanting the universe, enjoying sun, sand and life others are eagerly awaiting her return to Orlando, Florida to face off with Zenaida Gonzalez and her pending defamation lawsuit. Gonzalez’s attorney Keith Mitnik is chomping at the bit to ask her questions while under oath.

After Judge Jose Rodriguez recused himself from the long awaited Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez civil lawsuit, the reassigned Judge Lisa Munyon scheduled Casey’s deposition to October 8, 2011. But now the attorney defending Casey Anthony in the defamation lawsuit does not want her questioned under oath as previously scheduled.
Civil attorney Charles Greene filed a request Wednesday for the court to strike the notice of deposition and the related subpoena because Fernandez-Gonzalez “has again publicly announced the purported location of the defendant’s deposition.”

He has petitioned for another date because the time and place of the deposition has been revealed to the public again.
Understandably, with the press still hot on the Casey Anthony Trail and the multitude of threats against his client’s life, as her lawyer, he insists on confidentiality and now is asking Judge Lisa Munyon for another date to question Casey.
Charles Greene also claims the opposing side is “using the judicial system as a platform for publicity stunts.”
Keith Mitnik, one of Zenaida Gonzalez’s attorney cried foul and argued, “When we try to protect small people who have been crushed by somebody’s lies and you call that self aggrandizing, then you’re missing the boat.”
Keith Mitnik is a lawyer with Morgan & Morgan Law Firm which is a major law firm that specializes in personal injuries. Their grandiose advertisements can be seen on many billboards through out the state of Florida.

Snipped from Orlando Sentinel:

Green said Fernandez-Gonzalez will be required to depose Anthony where ever she lives, “which should also not be disclosed to the public due to bona fide safety issues.”
The attorney wants to take the issue up at a case-management conference.
Greene said in his motion that these matters should be raised at the case management conference.

Greene wants Fernandez-Gonzalez to answer questions
Greene also filed a “defendant’s request for admissions.” In that filing, he asks Fernandez-Gonzalez to “admit the truth” of a series of “facts.”
One of those is that “On July 16, 2008, your legal name was not ‘Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez’ and you did not use ‘Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez’ as an alias.”

It also asks her to admit she never met Jeffrey Michael Hopkins; never met Casey Anthony; never met her before July 16, 2008; never lived at Sawgrass Apartments before that date; and never lived with her mother in a home or apartment off Michigan Avenue before that date.
It also asks her to admit her mother’s name is not Gloria; she is not originally from New York State; did not attend University of Florida and never babysat for a boy named Zachary Hopkins, son of Jeffery Michael Hopkins.
These items relate to statements Anthony made to investigators and family members about her so-called nanny Zenaida Gonzalez.

Shockingly, this law firm that’s going after Casey Anthony also wants her psychological records as reported by The Palm Beach Post. This has nothing to do with Zenaida Gonzalez’s alleged loss wages and reputation.
In a request filed last Wednesday, July 20th, the attorneys suing Casey Anthony not only wants her psychological evaluations, diagnoses, treatment plans and prescriptions; the greedy lawyers also want to know what type of offers she’s received for television appearances and book deals. The also want Casey Anthony to produce all documents related to offers of “any type” made to her or her representatives for “interviews, television show appearances, movies, books, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, literature..” The document requests Anthony produce these items within 30 days.


“The People’s Governor” joins “The People’s Law Firm”

 Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has joined Morgan & Morgan. While serving in office, Crist was often referred to as “the People’s Governor.” His dedication and commitment to the people of Florida will remain the same as he works with the firm’s mass tort and class action department, fighting “for the people.” Crist said, “It’s truly a privilege for me to have this opportunity to work all over our beautiful state. John Morgan has set up an incredible firm of very gifted people and it’s truly an honor and a privilege to have this day come.”
Morgan & Morgan was founded in 1988 with a single office and three attorneys; the firm has since grown into one of the largest in the southeast with 13 offices and over 170 lawyers, with a staff of more than 500 people. The growth and success of the firm can be attributed to a steadfast commitment to representing the people, not the powerful. It is this focus that appealed to Crist: “It’s really such a natural transition for me; to be with Morgan & Morgan and work with my dear friend John Morgan… he really is all about the people. That’s what I’ve always tried to do and aspire to do as a public servant. Now I’ll do it in the private sector.
Crist has been a full-time politician since 2000; he served as Florida Education Commissioner (2001-2003) and Attorney General (2003-2007) before being elected Governor (2007-2011). Crist stated that his work as Attorney General will be an asset as he assists Morgan & Morgan in handling major class action lawsuits: “Having had the privilege of being Attorney General and working ‘for people, against the powerful,’ as John [Morgan] would say, I think is certainly going to bode well for the future.”

Crist who was governor in July 2008 when Casey was first arrested, is now working in one of the largest law firms of central Florida. He was governor when Zenaida Gonzalez hired Keith Mitnik of Morgan & Morgan. What are the chances of Casey Anthony getting a fair deal in this civil case when the ex-governor is now part of her opposition? What political favors will come Mr. Mitnik’s way with the ex-gov as a partner in his firm?


Perhaps it was decided that “The Casey Anthony Gravy Train” the gift that keeps on giving is worth more than a guilty verdict to a few politicians.
What’s to come in the years ahead? How did the death of an innocent child become so political? Inquiring minds want to know.

So not to be left at the station…
Texas EquuSearch attorneys also want to depose Casey Anthony on October 8th.
