Zenaida Gonzalez Seeks Punitive Damages Against Casey Anthony

Anthony said the woman suing her is not the person with whom she left Caylee and filed a countersuit against Gonzalez, claiming the lawsuit is frivolous.
Gonzalez's attorneys, John Morgan and Keith Mitnik, on Tuesday fired back at Anthony's attempt to have the lawsuit dismissed, attacking her claim that she cannot be sued for defamation for any lies she may have told investigators.
In the filing, Morgan and Mitnik said the law "does not give her a free pass to trash Zenaida Gonzalez" and they argued that not all of the alleged defamatory statements were made to authorities, saying Anthony's mother, Cindy Anthony -- at her daughter's prompting -- identified Gonzalez as a possible kidnapper.
Meanwhile, Casey Anthony's parents have moved to block questioning by Gonzalez's attorneys in the civil case. George and Cindy Anthony were expected to be deposed on Thursday, but that's now on hold, Local 6 News reported. Lee Anthony, Casey Anthony's brother, was to be questioned on Friday.
As for the criminal case against Casey Anthony, the state has given the defense two DVDs, one of which shows her behavior at sheriff's headquarters on the day she was indicted on a murder charge. The other shows Lee Anthony meeting with Casey Anthony's last boyfriend, Tony Lazzaro.

In his motion, attorney Brad Conway points out that George Anthony recently tried to commit suicide. He also acknowledged that both he and Cindy Anthony are getting professional help to deal with the grief of losing their granddaughter.
Conway argues that the Anthony's don't know Gonzalez. Conway is asking that the Anthony's depositions be put off until after the judge decides in May whether this civil suit will even continue.
Conway said Gonzalez' lawyers are asking for punitive money damages. But the family has no money for her to win. The Anthonys are scheduled to give depositions Thursday.

"Zenaida Fires Back," WKMG-Channel 6 headlined Tuesday evening.
"The stakes today just got raised," WKMG's Tony Pipitone said in a report that explained how the defamation case against Casey Anthony has intensified.
In another report about the defamation suit, WESH-Channel 2 reported that Brad Conway, attorney for George and Cindy Anthony, has filed a motion that the depositions of his clients be delayed or be done in writing.
"They have relevant information. It's very limited," Conway said.
Conway has revealed that George and Cindy Anthony are receiving professional help for grief over their granddaughter's murder.
Conway told WESH he hopes that a judge will decide the issue Wednesday, a day before the depositions are supposed to be given.

Their attorney won't let George and Cindy Anthony give sworn depositions until a judge orders them to do so, WESH-Channel 2 reported Tuesday afternoon.
Brad Conway, the attorney for the grandparents, filed a motion to block their testimony in Fernandez-Gonzalez's civil suit.
"This is certainly a legal line in the sand that has been drawn by the Anthonys' lawyer," WESH's Bob Kealing reported.
In his motion, Conway also revealed that George and Cindy Anthony are getting professional help for grief. Conway said that the depositions could open them to embarrassment. Conway asked that the depositions be delayed until after a May hearing into whether the defamation case will go forward.
