Lawyers will have another chance to question Casey Anthony, judge says

TAMPA, Fla. —A Tampa bankruptcy judge said Tuesday that Casey Anthony must answer some questions she refused to answer during a contentious January deposition.

The questions are part of the defamation suit filed by Zenaida Gonzalez, of Kissimmee.  Anthony accused a babysitter by the same name of kidnapping her daughter in 2008.

The judge said he will not let Gonzalez's lawyers retry the state's failed murder case, but his ruling does give Gonzalez's lawyers another chance to grill Anthony under oath. The ruling means Casey Anthony will not have to answer some of the toughest questions from a contentious January deposition about her daughter Caylee's 2008 disappearance.

Read the full deposition

Anthony threatened to walk out of the deposition when asked about Caylee. She did admit she lied about "Zanny the Nanny," but says she was never talking about the Zenaida Gonzalez from Kissimmee who's now suing her for defamation.

The judge's ruling means Gonzalez's lawyers can ask why Anthony never publicly retracted an earlier allegation that a so called "girl in Kissimmee" was responsible for the disappearance.

"We're looking forward to asking questions we're allowed to ask," Gonzalez's attorney Scott Shuker told WESH 2. "But disappointed we can't ask about Caylee's whereabouts."

Gonzalez's lawyers want to establish Anthony had malicious intent to implicate Gonzalez in July of 2008, while Anthony herself was facing the glare of suspicion over her daughter's disappearance.

Tampa bankruptcy Judge Rodney May said he wants to be available by phone if necessary to order Anthony to answer further questions.

A date for the new deposition has not yet been set.
