Jose Baez: Fired By Casey Anthony?

by at . Comments

Casey Anthony and Jose Baez will be forever linked by her infamous 2011 murder trial, during which he somehow won an acquittal for the accused child killer.

They will soon be parting ways, however.

The New York Post says Anthony is angry over the fallout of her case, and thinks Baez has not done enough to secure a lucrative interviews on her behalf.

There has also been friction over his handling of the Casey Anthony video diary situation, according to reports, in the past week, which may be the last straw.

“Casey doesn’t want to be reading that Jose’s working on all of these deals on her behalf,” a source said. “She thinks he’s using her name as a meal ticket.”

The paper says her original, though lesser-known attorney, Cheney Mason, will soon take over all Anthony's legal representation and deal with the media.

Baez, a relative novice before he met Casey Anthony, became an international star after he successfully represented her in her criminal case last year.

The verdict sparked outrage, and Anthony went into hiding, but that didn’t stop Baez from making the media rounds (in which he'd defend Casey and himself).

Last week, he appeared in an interview with Geraldo Rivera talking about how he would sue the hacker who leaked a private video diary made by Anthony.

“She doesn’t trust him anymore," said a source close to Anthony. TMZ reports that Baez was not fired, but has already agreed to cut ties with Anthony.


Sadie. you are in a very small minority. most people are just tired of this skank trying to make a buck off her daughter with more lies and spew.
She IS a onvicted felon. and "we dont think she's innocent" is not a declaration of innocence, that jury did NOT do their due diligence. it's ok though Karma WILL get her evil hyde.


No, not everyone hates her. I think it is sad the way people put her down. She was found not guilty, but yet you people are still trying to blame her for the loss of her daughter.


No Casey, it's not yoyr attorney's fault you can't "secure lucrative deals", it is YOUR fault. People hate you.


It's Chicago all over again, except this time instead of Renee Zellringer, Richard Gere, and the her dead lover; its staring Casey Anthony, Jose Baez and her dead daughter. This was not meant to be a joke although I loved that movie and can’t wait till I can afford to go see the play. Casey assumed she was going to get her 15mins of mourning fame after she got off. It didn’t happen… If you’ve seen the play or movie you know what I mean.


Dude is a lawyer, not a press agent. But both should rot in hell.
