Casey Anthony will be back in court soon after she was been served with a defamation lawsuit!
Keep reading the deets…
Anthony has been in hiding since a jury acquitted her of murder, manslaughter, and aggravated child abuse in July 2011. But investigators for a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez tracked Anthony down, The Huffington Post reports.
Gonzalez is suing Anthony for allegedly ruining her life with a sordid lie, but she had trouble finding Anthony in order to serve a subpoena. A judge’s ruling changed that.
The judge ruled last week that Casey Anthony’s attorney must accept service on Anthony’s behalf, or Anthony would have to release her address to be served, Orlando’s WFTV reports.
Given those options, Anthony’s lawyer said he would accept the subpoena for his client. Formal service is expected later this week.
Casey Anthony lied to investigators back in 2008 when her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, went missing. Casey told investigators that a woman named “Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez” kidnapped her missing daughter, who was later found deceased. Although the woman who’s name she used was deceased, a woman with a similar name (Zenaida Gonzalez) DOES exist, and claims she’s been subject to ill treatment because of Casey’s lie.
A trial date is set for January 2013.
