    Chicago attorney Andrea Lyon, who joined the Casey Anthony defense team to fight prosecutors' desire to seek the death penalty for the 24-year-old Orlando woman, is no longer on the team.

    Lead Anthony attorney Jose Baez confirmed today that Lyon has left the defense because of financial issues. He filed paperwork with the Orange County Clerk of Court's office late today reflecting Lyon's departure.

    Looks like it's a $ issue... hmm YEAH!

    I guess she realized she would have her first loss if she stayed on.

    Death penalty expert Andrea Lyon leaves Casey Anthony defense team

    The Florida Bar summed up the problem regarding Mr. Baez.
    "His overall behavior, they wrote, showed "a total lack of respect for the rights of others and a total lack of respect for the legal system, which is absolutely inconsistent with the character and fitness qualities required of those seeking to be afforded the highest position of trust and confidence recognized by our system of law."

    Lol! At the OS link, it states JB as saying, "You're really not going to notice any difference in the way the team operates." Bet that's why she's leaving. They just won't stop running their mouths, like Cheney the other day. Can't say that I blame her for jumping ship.

    Naw, she sees $$$$$$ coming soon.

    Seriously, I do believe this is a just another move by JB to drag the trial date further out. Now, I am wondering how HHJP will react to this. I don't believe he can force her to stay since she is out of state.

    Will be interesting. Waiting for our esteem attorneys to chime in.

    I imagine that the fact that they will watching how the money is spent now has something to do with it too. Out of state experts are going to be harder to justify so she won't be able to pull in her friends.

    there are a few heads spinning 'bout now...can't even imagine what Baez's words were when he got the news and I'm betting CM will be the next to exit stage left...

    to our astros, they called this one long ago!

    I suspect that her departure was planned for quite a while. I suspect that Mason was added to the team becasue a death penalty lawyer would be needed. That's JMO it may be entirely wrong but I doubt that she jumped based on one "flub" by co counsel.

    Let's remember all the emphasis that AL has placed on "family contact" in mitigation. The recent letters demonstrate a clear case of that NOT happening.

    THis is not about $$$$$$....she has made tons (in advertising and publicity) through this case. This IMO is about a discord in the team. Why would JB want to admit that there is internal strife with the defense team?? Perhaps his comment about $$$$$ was an insult to AL in a "backward sort of way"??

    I wonder if the indigency hearing disclosure that she used most of the DePaul legal clinic's donated funds for KC's case is another reason she is leaving. I wonder if her "donation's" have dried up.
