Respectfully Trisha? Isn't Cassadaga (the community in which she mentioned) in New York. I have been there a few times. It is a gated community. ETA: I mean no disrespect. There could be another one.

There is also a Cassadaga Fla..It is up around the Daytona area I believe. It is the same type community as the one in N.Y..

OK, I have no idea why this post is in this thread - must have been something I missed. But to answer the question: There is a Cassadage about 35 miles north of Orlando. It is an interesting little town - I have been there a few times. It is was started as a community for spiritualists, etc. and still is to this day. Worth a visit just for the history and the 'aura' of the area.

The only interview I remember Dominic giving is the one w/ J. Allen & others.
I don't remember if they rescheduled his depo that was cancelled in Dec of '09 but I could've just missed it...

The SA had a scheduled secret investigative deposition with him which was approved by JS, in December, which the defense was not allowed to attend.
(Remember the fuss about Baez saying he was going to add him to his witness list so he could attend, then thought better of it and changed his mind).

As it was a secret investigative deposition, it seems natural to me that we have not seen that testimony released under the Sunshine Laws. Because we haven't seen it doesn't mean we should assume it hasn't been done.

I find it very interesting that Baez decided not to put DC on his witness list. You'd think he would be one of his best witnesses to prove SODDI because he could say we searched there and she wasn't there -- UNLESS there was something really hinky about those searches (which we all know there was) and Baez knows that DC will turn State's witness. I know I haven't said anything new here, but just thinking about the possibilities of what DC could tell us gets me all excited. Darn! I wish we could read that investigative deposition!

Has anyone heard anything new about where Dominic is and what he is up to these days?

Wow! This is the first time I'd seen this interview! First, I've never seen them do an interview that CA was not in control & the one who answered 99% of the questions asked! Second, she had "that look", you know, the look that ppl have after receiving news of the loss of a loved one!

There's not a doubt in my mind that CA had been told that Caylee was indeed dead. I know the look & the feeling, you've been told, you've cried until you can't seem to cry anymore, you're heart just hurts, you continue to try to function but you have that "zombie feeling" & what I'd describing is NOT from medication....it's just how it makes you feel, it drains everything from you.

The news that DC had apparently shared with CA had not been shared with GA. You're right, CA, MB knew but GA did not....he was still, well GA. I would love to know how close in proximity the dates correspond with each other...the day of the meet/greet vs the day this interview was given. If someone already knows the answer, that'd be great, if not I'll check into it and post!

TIA



I completely agree. What has MB ever done? Why & How does she keep inserting herself in these situations? Just from the interview she gave it was (IMO) quite evident she lacked the expertise to play the family spokesperson. As for George, he knew earlier than Cindy (IMO). 1. He smelled the car, 2. He was quite aware of the home situation and 3. His friend, the retired cop from Ohio confirmed to George that first evening who held all the answers. The problem is that Cindy pulled George off of KC and put him in his place. Did George ever step foot out once and help in searching for his granddaughter? He did take the battery out of the car.:furious: He just didn't have time to call LE. (IMO)

Yes, Baez backed out quite quickly as there was a little problem of when Dom worked for who and when was all that exactly. And the issue of Baez telling him if he found a body not to call LE - that cross examination by LE would have been very very uncomfortable for Baez. No way he would willingly open that door.

I do not believe Dominic is scared at all. He wants the truth to come out. He claimed to be talking to Ginnette Lucas and no one believed him. But that was the truth. He will be vindicated on these other accusations as well.


It just seems that if DC was never scared why didn't he sit for a deposition when asked? Why did he refuse to disclose the number of phones he carries? In the documents the SA was given from the A's why isn't there more focus on DC's part on actually searching for Caylee? During the interview he did give to LE, BC was there( :waitasec:conflict of interest) and DC couldn't get his contract dates straight which in of itself seems like there were ethical boundaries crossed along with even more potential problems with conflict of interest. It's taking the SA to obtain a court order to even attempt taking his deposition. Who knows maybe it is a feeling of being scared but more like a sense of reality.(IMO)

I haven't heard about him. I guess he's still in semi-hiding. But his lawyer, Dianna Tennis (if she is still his lawyer), made some comments about Judge Perry. It was posted in the Judge Perry thread, I believe. She thinks he's going to be strict. I wonder if this new judge is making Dom more nervous...

Yes they do, thats weird huh. They call the community "Lillydale" and persons that live there do readings and those types of things from the home. It is a gated community during visting season you pay an admission at the gate. There are spirtualist, mediums and psychic, tarot card readers. It is located in Cassadaga New York.

I only commented because I was concerned that it was the wrong state, the odds were against having another community just like it in another state and I didn't want people to look it up and not find it. So I appoligise for the confusion and thank you for your clarification and information!

If DC did give his deposition and there were statements in there that required an investigation that may be why we have not seen it yet. LE could be still trying to track down the extra "bat" phone information. JMO

Does the recent (May 7, 2010) departure of Dominic's attorney, Diana Tennis, indicate that he HAS given the State some type of depo, and it has not been released to the public (yet)???

THANK YOU MuzikMan for getting this document for us!
The attorney says she has finished her obligation under the contract.
Interesting that Ms Tennis has attended several of the recent Hearings on Casey's murder case.

05/07/2010 Notice of Conclusion - Diana Tennis
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/38690284/05072010-Notice-of-Conclusion---Diana-Tennis

Interesting that this lawyer wrote an incorrect mailing address for her former client, in this Notice.
She wrote his OLD business address, which he has moved out of. He is not renting that space.
Dominic's own website lists a P.O. Box address. http://dgator.com/contactus.aspx

Atty Tennis had previously filed a Motion to Strike his depo - October 16, 2009
http://www.cfnews13.com/uploadedFiles/Stories/Local/Motion%20to%20Strike%20Notice%20of%20Deposition%20 and%20Motion%20for%20Protective%20Order.pdf

Motion dated Oct 16, 2009 [not filed until Dec. 10, 2009 - depo was originally scheduled for Nov 12, 2009, but was rescheduled for Dec. 16, 2009]

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/19477476/Notice-of-Cancellation-of-Depo---Dominic-Casey
The Dec. 16, 2009 depo got cancelled - 12/14/2009 Notice of Cancellation
Cancellation of Deposition prev scheduled for 12/16/09 @1:30pm
The Dec. 16, 2009 depo was canceled but December 15th Judge S said that Dominic must sit for an investigative interview with the State, in which Defense could not be present, unless Defense certified Dominic as a Defense witness, then a regular depo would be scheduled.

Dominic hastily moved out of his rented office space and his home is in foreclosure (still an active case – been going on for more than a year). Wonder why he canceled his foreclosure meeting scheduled for Feb 19, 2010? He canceled that meeting a month before. He has several inactive corporations in his name, including Wekiwa Holdings - inactive as of September 25, 2009. He just recently also closed a FOUNDATION – September 25, 2009, Christina’s New Heart Foundation, which he was the only “Officer” of.

Foreclosure is still active and open - latest entry May 11, 2010 - related to discovery requests

Thanks for posting such comprehensive information ThinkTank. When I saw the withdrawal motion, I thought hmm - that will strike up some action on the threads, but it's all been about the aggravators.

My first thought was - oh I guess he's given his deposition and she got him an immunity deal. Then second - wonder if he's being completely uncooperative and she's given up. Third - wonder if he doesn't have the money to pay her to represent him.

But not one answer in my brain! I'm not sure why he is such a well kept secret in the case. Is it because he is completely unimportant and slunk off in to obscurity, or is he so important the SA are keeping him completely under wraps?

Thanks ThinkTank! I just saw where MM posted Dianna Tennis' Notice of Conclusion on the Motion's thread and thought - "Well now...isn't THAT interesting."


LG, I think if Dominic had just totally refused to cooperate, Ms. Tennis would be filing a motion to withdraw.

I'm heading over to the Atty. thread to get some clarity on this notice.

ThinkTank
05-15-2010, 05:01 PM
I have the feeling that Dominic has decided to use a different attorney for future representation, and Ms. Tennis is just letting the Court and attorneys know that she is no longer representing him, so they will not send correspondence to her. They want to tie up any lose ends, so Dominic can move forward with a new attorney, maybe.

We have to wait and see if another attorney files a "Notice of Appearance" to let the Court know that they are now representing Dominic. Surely he will want to have a lawyer by his side if/when he is called as a witness in the murder trial?

I personally believe that Ms. Tennis "MIGHT" be in some jeopardy for submitting false statements to the Court in the civil case and in the murder case ...... Just my opinion and speculation ....

I've noticed her attending hearings and is suddenly one of the talking legal heads quoted regarding hearings, which to me is unusual considering her involvement with Dom. Several times I've read stations quoting both Tennis and our own Hornsby. Now I understood asking Hornsby for a comment, because he is independent and has not been directly involved in the case, but reading one from Tennis definitely made me think hmmm. :waitasec:
And she has been at a couple of hearings - so what's up? It could very well be that Dom has been uncooperative and she has stepped away from the situation or is concerned about submitting false information as questioned above in the thread.

Is this her right behind the prosecutors at Casey's indictment, too? Yes, she has opined on this case on the cable shows as well, before she represented Dom. In one instance she opined that the defense absolutely should go with a diminished capacity ( paraphrasing ) defense. Oh my

IMO, unlike Baez, I thought D.Tennis handled herself professionally in the small amount of the hearings she was active in on behalf of DC.

Would it not make sense for her to handle DC pro bono if he is unable to pay her just for the sake of publicity, like Baez? At least IMO that's what this case is for JB - or maybe she thinks she can get more positive publicity by being a talking head.

It is very puzzling, because, to me, what she has said on the cable shows isn't exactly pro-defense.

I don't believe "the girls" were moving out unless ICA had a man stashed some where we don't know about, who was willing to support her. Maybe that guy in California was her next "mark". Hey! Wasn't that his name?

Uh, would you hire DC to investigate something for you? I sure as heck wouldn't. He's probably struggling to get even one client after the Caylee search debacle. That and he needs to go to a professional private eye school because my dog is a better investigator than he is.

We also don't know if the A's have been dogging him by word of mouth. I can totally see Cindy doing this since he did such a bad job of not finding Caylee's remains before someone else did. I can hear it now, "A damn meter reader is a better investigator than Dominic Casey! Don't waste your money!"

Btw, I would think anyone known to pal around with the A's would have a hard time getting people to take them seriously and want to work with them. I seriously hope DC came to his senses and did that depo truthfully if he has any hope of having a career after associating with the anthony's and doing the worst job of investigating I've ever seen.

Question then Denjet - If we go with your summation, which I hope has happened, I guess we can assume D.Tennis was with Dom Casey when he gave his deposition, or can we?

Somehow, I think something somewhere is wrong when a lawyer sits in on a sworn deposition for her client, then goes out into the media and comments on that very case. Am I completely off base here?

Dom Casey is a man who knows a lot about a lot of things - ergo Diane Tennis is a woman who knows a lot about a lot of things......

I think DC is highly important to the case, considering that less than a month before her remains were found, he was searching for Caylee's remains and came within feet of where they were eventually found.

It's obvious from statements he and JH made that DC's search of that specific area was done upon directions from someone who knew where the remains were.

Then we have Cindy's statement to YM in late Decemeber 2008 when he came to the Anthony home to serve a search warrant. She said, "I sent someone to search that area (where the remains were found) a month ago and nothing was there."

DC has completely disappeared from the scene, and I suspect that he must have had the investigative review with the state that JS ordered on Dec. 15, 2009. I believe that the state may very well be keeping DC under wraps. His testimony may be crucial to the state, at least I hope so.

ITA! As soon as HHJStrickland ordered an investigative depo of DC take place, I went "YES!!". When it became apparent that Baez was not going to add DC to the defense witness list (and therefore Baez would not be allowed to attend said investigative depo) I yelled "YES! YES! YES!". I am going to assume this investigative depo took place, perhaps some deals were put on the table and that is why DC has dropped out of sight. Any immunity that was (possibly) granted DC would *zap* *poof* disappear if he got cozy with the Anthonys again. Assuming DC wants to stear clear of any criminal charges related to possible illegal, "under the radar" Rosebud-type activity----his best option is the truth! I believe firmly that DC's depo and the information garnered are going to be damning for the defense and ICA. The concept of "turning State's evidence" is actually very, very common in criminal cases. Often, its testimony from an "insider" (like DC was) that can really seal the deal, so to speak. Detectives are always investigating anyone close to the defendant that may have criminal culpability themselves. It's known as "going after the BIG FISH" and cutting the smaller ones go in exchange for their cooperation. Casey is 100% the big fish here, and DC may be the smaller trout that brings some of those dirty deeds into the light.

Watch this video of GA, he states the last time they saw Caylee was on June 8 and 9th this was before they changed the date to the 16th. What mother forgets the exact date that someone took her daughter, if I were on the jury the fact of having the dates wrong would be enough for me to convict her.

In this tape Casey has the date messed up, again! I do think that Cindy did grow close to Dom and would have confided all to him. He may very well have taken those confidences to the grave. That changed when it was put to him in no uncertain terms that the choice he had legally was clear...him or them. Funny how loyalty goes out the window in a circumstance like that. If hardened Mafia members sing under pressure, you can bet all the money in your pockets that Dominic was a pushover for LE.

I know some members cannot stand Nancy's show. This clip is full of actual sound bites and no opining by her. ( O/T ...regarding Nancy. If you look up her record as a prosecutor she had a 99 percent success rate , over years of a stellar career in the District Attorney's office. That is a lot of evil people she got off our streets. Do you want to know how she got in the legal field? Her young fiance was murdered! Like Mr. Miller, Beth Holloway, Mark Klass, et al.....she took a tragedy and made it her life's mission to fight against acts like that going unpunished. I am not easily impressed, but that fact inspires me.

The simple answer is DC may answer questions differently or could be "coached" if the defense is present. Also it might cause the interview to go smoother with DC and his chosen attorney only. I have a feeling that JB would make an objection to every question asked of DC trying to claim work product.

That and some of the questions may be related to a possible investigation.

In this tape Casey has the date messed up, again! I do think that Cindy did grow close to Dom and would have confided all to him. He may very well have taken those confidences to the grave. That changed when it was put to him in no uncertain terms that the choice he had legally was clear...him or them. Funny how loyalty goes out the window in a circumstance like that. If hardened Mafia members sing under pressure, you can bet all the money in your pockets that Dominic was a pushover for LE.

If you look up her record as a prosecutor she had a 99 percent success rate , over years of a stellar career in the District Attorney's office. That is a lot of evil people she got off our streets. Do you want to know how she got in the legal field? Her young fiance was murdered! Like Mr. Miller, Beth Holloway, Mark Klass, et al.....she took a tragedy and made it her life's mission to fight against acts like that going unpunished. I am not easily impressed, but that fact inspires me.

If I were Baez, I would have sent a message from the defense table, add Dom to the witness list, we need to file that TODAY so we can be present at the depo! Unlike some of the silly people he did depose, Dominic could be important, very important. Surely he had a lot to say, and he was already busted lying to police. In the words of Mark Klass, "The truth does not change". One lie that comes to mind is he had no idea Hoover was taping him in the woods.
LE surely pointed out this out to Dominick too when they interviewed him that they were very near one another while that filming in the woods was going on. There is no way Dominick didn't know Hoover was there and indeed they were speaking to one another in parts. He was cold busted lying to them. The judge already ruled he has no privilege. Indeed he will be made to answer questions at the civil trial as well, imo. The funny thing is since we have already seen his e mails back and forth to Cindy, the obvious questions that detail how and to what extent he looked for the Zanny the Nanny have already been answered. He did not.The fact that the PI hired by the family claims to have been chasing down locations where Casey partied as a teen rather than looking in to every single Zenaida Gonzalez one could find tells us and the jury all we need to know. The family wasn't investigating any Zanny because they knew one did not exist. Game over.

1. There was no babysitter.
2. Casey is the only one who had the child.
3. She never reported the child missing.
4. Casey admitted to telling lie after lie to police and leading them on a wild goose chase.
5.. The little bones are finally discovered, so we know the child is indeed dead.
6. The private investigator under contract with Casey knew out of all the places on this earth, exactly ( within a few feet) where she put the baby's body.


The rest is icing on the cake for me if I were a juror. There are no coincidence in criminal law. I will be very interested to hear the entire, unedited version of the LE interview. The interesting thing that I learned recently about Dom is that his home was in pre foreclosure, he had only had only been a PI mere months before meeting the Anthonys, so how does one in this precarious predicament afford to work on anything for a year for free. Something has him emotionally invested and I am very leery of him. I have some very dear friends that I love more than life that I will trade favors with, but if even they expected me to work on something for a year, it would be with a warm note, and a invoice! LOL!!! The Anthonys were not old friends of his, they were strangers to him. Something keeps them tied together, something nefarious in my opinion.

Rather than help Cindy's daughter, anything and all things Dominick did rather help the state establish fact number one, there was no babysitter. For him to continue to insist he has remained under contract with Casey all along is a nightmare for her defense in my opinion, that is a straight line that says loud and clear Casey knew where the dead body was. Play over. Cut. Scene. Sentencing phase.

It is really very simple. :)

You are misrepresenting the facts by stating that the SA wanted to depose DC w/o the defense present. In fact, ALL Mr. Baez had to do was simply add DC to the defense witness list in order to attend the depo. So, the question really is, what was Mr. Baez afraid of? Exactly what is his big secret, since he refused to add him to the defense witness list, in order to be able to attend that depo? So, for the SA to be able to finally do their work efficiently, they were forced to ask Judge Strickland to order an 'investigative interview' ONLY because Mr. Baez refused to cooperate. I couldn't agree more with your statement "Let just be truth be known"! You are spot on with that!

I have a personal request, NTS. You are not technically incorrect by continuing to refer to Judge Strickland as the 'disqualified judge'; however, I think the WS TOS encourages us to be most respectful of all members, witnesses, attorneys, judges, etc... in an effort to try to limit inflammatory remarks that tend to encourage inciting OT angry responses. Would it really be that much trouble to just refer to him as JS or Judge Strickland? I mean it's even shorter to type, ya know? ;) Obviously, you don't have to comply with my request, since it is just a member request. I, for one, would very much appreciate it. :)

I believe he had to face his fears and give his testimony per the judge's recent order.
When I watched the hearing what I took away from it was

The State asked Baez in advance of the hearing, if indeed he wanted to add Dom to their witness list, he answered that had not been decided.. I take that as a no.

Dom's lawyer argued that since he is not on the witness list the traditional subpoena would not work, and agreed that of course the State has the right to issue an investigative subpoena. The judge instructed the state to do so and he said go ahead and make use of the time you already have scheduled.

Again, the State reminded the court and Baez that this would make it a matter between Dom and the State and no Baez, period. Quickly the judge concurred. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ls_dUmQTgNM

Baez got confused and said if you are inclined to rule that we cannot be there I would object , of course I want to be there... I could make this all moot by adding him to my witness list ( no kidding Baez)

The judge respectfully explained he already had ruled and that since the state would not be inquiring about the period of time he claims to have employed Dom, it was basically irrelevant to him if the State wanted to depose him in this manner.

They ( Dom's lawyer, Miss Tennis, the State and the Judge) were all very clear it seemed, the following week at the already scheduled time, Dom and Miss Tennis would come for a an investigative subpoenaed deposition, per the judge's order at this hearing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAuXZ3jqJ70


Beaz left still confused it seemed, he may have even told one of the reporters that he was going to add Dom to the witness list, then mama bear or the other lawyers schooled him that they do not wish to release the witness list just yet.

Rut row
Because this type of depo by an investigative subpoena , I believe it did happen on the time prearranged, according to the judge's order.

I am not a lawyer, this is my opinion. You have to listen carefully to that part of the hearing, it is hard because it so distracting watching Baez roll his eyes and make faces, etc. LOL!

Mr. Hornsby opined on his blog this very topic and ended with this "The Bottom Line.....

Which leads us to Judge Strickland’s final remarks:

“Call me if there is a problem.”

Essentially he instructed the parties to go forward with the interview/deposition and to call him (literally) if there are any objections based on privilege that must be ruled on during the interview/deposition.

IIRC, DC stated, Baez told him if he found Caylee's remains, not to call 911! So, that would also be a reason Baez chose not to list him as a witness. The state held an investigative depo with DC, didn't they? It remains sealed, doesn't it??

I also remember an email between CA and DC to did up dirt on RK and many others..I also remember Baez telling CA after some things were dug out, Good work "rosebud"! IMO, Baez needs to be fearful of alot of things and could possibly come out at trial and this will be the beginning of the end of Baez' career..

I also find so odd, CA instructed DC to look for a live Caylee, months after her remains were found/her memorial service. Does she truly believe that Caylee is still alive out there somewhere? Who's ashes does she wear around her neck? This family is so convoluted...

haha no, from what my neighbors have said he moved out of this particular neighborhood before 2008. I definitely did keep a look out for her vehicle every time I passed by his office, though. :) Never saw her. Always wondered why the move out of the office - out of money? Or coming into money and upgrading?

And I heard a rumor he was also having his house go into foreclosure. That'd be interesting to know. . .

He has assorted financial problems around the State of FL, not only Orange Co, but Seminole and Polk Co. Probably more than I have time to search for.

Thank you for once again pointing this out - HHJS is a highly qualified Judge who recused himself from this case and currently sits on the bench as a Judge.

The word disqualified implies someone else "disqualified him" from the bench. HHJP made this decision himself. He could have declined the motion and stayed where he was.

Lets stop the game playing and get back to discussion.

Strickland is a qualified judge that recused himself based on potential perceived bias after a motion was filed accusing him of such.He disqualified himself. Recused judge, disqualified judge they are both accurate for this case.

What will not be tolerated are negative adjectives such as incompetent or dishonest things like that. JS is and was a good fair judge.
BUT, let's drop the whole issue because it is getting weary and old and it is a lot of word play. It is not the topic of this thread.

JBean, respectfully, I realize this may seem petty or small, but actually according to definition technically the second version is true. To avoid a semblance of partiality. The accusation the defense made was that HHJS should be disqualified and the judge recused himself first in order to avoid the appearance of a conflict instead of contesting the claim.

So, in essence, even though the accusation was that the judge be disqualified due to bias, it was never proven or on record as being fact.

Disqualified, like dishonest, is a pejorative term and I assume we are to refrain from describing players in this case that are doing nothing but simply but carrying out their jobs and have no other obvious agenda or stand to profit in any way.

The collateral damage in this case has been very high for citizens who have done nothing but try to help. The despicable acts of the defense in claiming everything from investigative malfeasance to pointing the finger at innocent people as an underhanded strategy to misdirect our attention from the accused should not be allowed to infect the reputations of these people further.
