    UPDATED: Casey Anthony back in court

    The Orlando mother charged with murdering her daughter was back in court on Thursday. Casey Anthony returned to the Orange County Courthouse dressed in somewhat casual attire with her hair pulled back.
    The first motion, filed by Brad Conway, attorney for George and Cindy Anthony, was to prevent prosecutors from releasing the note which George wrote in January after he disappeared for several hours and left threats of suicide. He was later found at a Daytona Beach hotel.
    Judge Stickland granted the motion to keep the note private. He did leave open the possibility of revisiting the issue.

    Judge Strickland found the defense's request for bench notes to be moot. He asked that the defense make a formal request for information from the Federal Bureau of Investigations and private labs at the University of Tennessee, which were involved in the testing.
    Judge Strickland then addressed the defense's request for sanctions against the prosecution because they were not informed about all the evidence removed from Casey Anthony's 1998 Pontiac Sunfire GT on July 16.
    The judge called attorneys to the bench and after about a 5-minute private meeting, Strickland ruled against the sanctions.

    Judge Strickland briefly addressed motions regarding screen shots taken from the computer belonging to Ricardo Morales, one of Casey Anthony's ex-boyfriends. Morales had posted a picture of a woman on his MySpace page which included the words "win her over with chloroform."

    Judge Denies Defense Motions In Anthony Case
    POSTED: Thursday, March 12, 2009
    UPDATED: 7:33 pm EDT March 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    A suicide note recovered from the car of Caylee Anthony's grandfather will not be made public as part of the discovery process in the murder case of the slain toddler's mother, a judge ruled Thursday.
    Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, asked the judge to issue sanctions against prosecutors for failing to disclose to the defense that they had hired an insect expert and a botanist to assist them -- and that those experts had been sent evidence for examination. The judge denied the request.

    UPDATED: Judge Denies Every Motion From Casey's Defense Team
    Posted: 9:50 am EDT March 12, 2009
    Updated: 6:19 pm EDT March 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    Casey Anthony headed back to jail and her defense team headed back to square one. Her lawyers lost every ruling in court Thursday regarding evidence and proposed sanctions on prosecutors. The prosecutors' antics appeared to frustrate the judge.

    Casey walked into the courtroom Thursday afternoon wearing a white Cardigan sweater and had her hair pilled back in a bun. She sat down and smiled as she waited for the hearing to begin. Casey sat fidgeting, not wearing the red lipstick she had ordered from the jail's commissary last week.
    Casey seemed more subdued in her manner and in her dress. But the usually subdued and laid back circuit Judge Stan Strickland appeared to lose patience with the defense team and he ended up not giving them anything they wanted at the hearing.
    Casey Anthony appeared to give her father a passing glance as she shook hands with one of her new defense attorneys Todd Macaluso. George and Cindy Anthony attended the hearing and at one point, appearing to cry, George wiped his eyes.


    It was a tough day for her defense team.
    Linda Kenney Baden wanted the judge to order the prosecutors to hand over the FBI's bench notes from the DNA testing it did on the evidence. The judge didn't do that because prosecutors don't have them and the judge has no jurisdiction over the FBI outside of Florida.
    The judge told the defense to ask the FBI for the evidence. The defense wanted the judge to sanction prosecutors for allegedly keeping evidence from them and concealing the experts who examined the trash bag and a paper towel from Casey's car from the witness list.

    "The motion for sanctions is denied." said Judge Strickland.
    Thursday's hearing comes on the heels of another brewing battle over jail video of Casey Anthony the day Caylee's remains were found on December 11.
    Casey's defense team also wanted all computer evidence from her ex-lover Ricky Morales, who according to investigators had deleted files the day he turned it over to officers. Investigators say Morales had a page in his computer when he was dating Casey that read "Win her over with chloroform."

    Judge hears all motions in Casey Anthony hearing
    Sarah Lundy | Sentinel Staff Writer
    5:17 PM EDT, March 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    5:17 p.m. After today's hearing, Casey Anthony's defense attorneys said they plan on contacting the FBI and asking for various notes from the agency.
    The defense also said one thing they plan to follow-up with at trial is the fact that Orange County Sheriff's Office crime scene investigators destroy their notes once they write their reports.

    4:58 p.m. Judge Strickland has heard all the motions scheduled for today. He said that if the investigator who reviewed the ex-boyfriend's computer has notes, he or she needs to turn them over.

    4:54 p.m. Judge Strickland denied the defense's request for sanctions.

    4:47 p.m. Prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick told Judge Stan Strickland that Jose Baez is trying to argue something he hasn't proven. She said Baez is trying to insinuate some type of police misconduct.

    4:40 p.m. Defense attorney Jose Baez was going to call another witness but changed his mind. He is now addressing Judge Strickland.

    4:30 p.m. The crime scene investigator was at the Sheriff's Office when Dr. Henry Lee -- one of Jose Baez's experts -- arrived to inspect evidence. Lee was going to inspect the car and other evidence.

    4:12 p.m. Defense attorney Jose Baez is now questioning a crime scene investigator who processed Anthony's car July 16.

    4:00 p.m.The judge has called the attorneys to the bench and is talking to them now.

    3:55 p.m. Judge Strickland has found the defense's request for DNA and evidence gathering is moot. Strickland wants the defense to request the information from the FBI and private labs.

    3:40 p.m. Judge Stan Strickland granted Conway's motion. Conway asked the judge to block prosecutors from releasing a note George Anthony wrote in January when he threatened suicide.

    Anthony - who is required to attend all hearings - is sitting next to her attorney Jose Baez and co-counsel Linda Kenney Baden. She was seated before the public was allowed in the courtroom. Her hair is pulled back and she appears to be wearing a white cardigan atop a dark shirt and dark pants.
    The courtroom is packed with reporters and onlookers. Anthony's parents - George Anthony and Cindy Anthony are sitting in the first row, behind their daughter. Orange County detectives John Allen and Yuri Melich are also in attendance.

    Judge Stan Strickland, however, did grante a motion to keep George Anthony's suicide note private.The hearing lasted about 90 minutes. It opened with Strickland quickly ruling on a motion from the Anthony family that prevents the prosecution from releasing George Anthony's suicide note. Anthony survived an attempt to take his life in January.

    UPDATED: Casey Anthony case: WKMG predicts more hearings, WFTV sees a bad day for defense, WESH highlights "scared Casey"
    posted by halboedeker on Mar 12, 2009 5:24:07 PM
    <snipped>
    WKMG-Channel 6's Tony Pipitone predicted many more hearings.
    Pipitone's analysis gave WKMG the edge in coverage. He is just so knowledgeable, and he was the most valuable player, stepping in with cogent insights when the sound was cut off in the courtroom. He quickly summed up what had happened after the hearing ended.

    WKMG's Jessica D'Onofrio described the scene outside the courtroom. Cindy Anthony, Casey's mother, hugged defense attorney Jose Baez before the hearing and "wiped away tears," D'Onofrio reported.

    On WESH-Channel 2, Bob Kealing noted that the parents "only managed to get a couple of glances in court with Casey" and that George was wearing "a very visible Caylee button."
    Conway said, "Caylee's always with them, and she always will be with them, and they want everybody to know that."


    WESH's Michelle Meredith asked for Baez's reaction after he was denied two of his motions. One was for sanctions against the state. Was he disappointed?
    "We're persistent, and we're going to stay persistent," Baez said. "Persistence beats resistance. ... It's part of the job. You don't always get what you want the first time around. But we're going to keep asking what we feel we're entitled to."

    Meredith strained to get any reaction from George and Cindy Anthony. Both are evidently fighting colds, and Meredith tried to learn more. But they were mostly mum.
    "Cindy, how do you think it went to day?" Meredith asked.
    "She thinks it went fine," Conway replied.
    Meredith also observed to Baez, "Casey looks scared."
    Baez: "That's your interpretation."
