Casey Anthony Defamation Suit: New Trial Brewing?

by at .

Casey Anthony may not be out of the legal woods just yet.

Her civil defense attorney is doing everything he can to make sure a defamation lawsuit against his client won’t go to trial, and today, a judge will hear the lawyer argue for the dismissal of the lawsuit brought against Anthony by Zenaida Gonzalez.

The 25-year-old might want to say a prayer this afternoon.

Gonzalez, a.k.a. Zanny the Nanny, is suing Anthony for defamation, claims that she was harassed and threatened after Anthony came up with a bogus nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez-Fernandez who she accused of kidnapping her daughter Caylee.

Gonzalez's attorneys will ask that Casey Anthony's video diaries be ordered into evidence in the case. Anthony has been keeping the video journal, which were leaked mysteriously this winter, since her July acquittal on murder charges.

What relevance the diary has is unclear, but it appears below:

Anthony was cleared of all charges related to her child's death, but was convicted on four counts of lying to law enforcement. She was sentenced to four years.

However, with credit for the time she served before and during her murder trial, she was released from jail less than two weeks after her acquittal July 17.

She is currently in hiding, but serving probation for check fraud, somewhere in her native Florida. Anthony will most likely not be present in court today.
