Judge's decision means Casey Anthony defamation cases likely to go forward

Posted: 12:49 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013

TAMPA, Fla. A federal bankruptcy judge in Tampa said if Casey Anthony loses defamation lawsuits filed against her, she will be responsible for any money she owes.

Anthony's attorneys were in court Tuesday hoping to convince the judge otherwise.

Long before Anthony went to trial on charges she murdered her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez sued Anthony for defamation.

Gonzalez was questioned by investigators, after Anthony claimed a woman with the same name was Caylee's nanny and had kidnapped Caylee.

When Anthony was shown a photograph of Gonzalez, she said it was not the same woman.

But later, Anthony told her mother, during a videotaped jail visit, that investigators had never shown her the photo of Gonzalez. Anthony's mother, Cindy Anthony, later told Channel 9 that her daughter had not cleared Gonzalez.

That simple fact has kept Gonzalez's lawsuit alive for five years.

Months after Casey Anthony was acquitted of first-degree murder in 2011, former Orange County meter reader Roy Kronk sued her for defamation.

Kronk discovered Caylee's remains near the Anthonys' house.

Early on, Casey Anthony accused him in court filings of being the possible killer, and during her trial he was accused him of tampering with Caylee's remains.
