    Judge May Force Anthonys To Answer More Questions
    Posted: 10:41 pm EDT May 20, 2009
    <snipped>
    Eyewitness News learned that George and Cindy Anthony are trying to avoid further questioning by lawyers representing Zenaida Gonzalez, who is suing their daughter Casey for defamation.

    The Anthonys say they were subjected to public ridicule the first time they were questioned in the lawsuit for the way they behaved and they don't want to face that kind of criticism again.

    A judge is expected to decide Thursday whether to force the Anthonys and their son Lee to answer more questions. The attorneys want to know if Casey ever used Cindy's credit cards without permission. Cindy refused to answer that question during her first deposition.

    Attorneys will also depose one of Casey's friends.

    UPDATED: Casey's Friend Says Cindy, Casey Fought
    Thursday, May 21, 2009 5:04:57 PM
    <snipped>
    "We were best friends for a short period of time," Downing said during a deposition on Thursday. After Anthony was released from jail, she visited Downing.

    But lawyers for Zenaida Gonzalez, who is suing Anthony for defamation, said Casey didn't have a nanny or even know a Zenaida Gonzalez.

    Downing said Thursday that she doesn't think a Zanny the Nanny exists.

    "We've heard from the Anthonys now that everybody knew a Zanny and that it had been common knowledge, and here her best friend had never heard the name," said John Dill, Zenaida Gonzalez's attorney.

    We were expecting to find out if a judge would order Cindy, George, and Lee Anthony to answer questions they originally refused during depositions. However, Brad Conway, the attorney for George and Cindy Anthony hurt his back and had to cancel.

    The hearing may be rescheduled in June.

    UPDATED: Civil case against Casey adjourned
    Updated: Thursday, 21 May 2009, 12:42 PM EDT
    Published : Thursday, 21 May 2009, 6:49 AM EDT
    <snipped>
    The judge adjourned the hearing due to an illness of Cindy and George's attorney. It is not clear when the hearing will resume.

    Annie Downey, one of Casey's childhood friends, is currently being deposed by the Morgan & Morgan law firm.

    "Cindy Anthony talked to Casey Anthony at the jail, and she denied ever looking at a picture of Zenaida Gonzalez, our client, and clearing her, saying 'That's not her.' She told her mother that didn't happen," attorney Keith Mitnik said, who represents Gonzalez.

    Cindy Anthony has said under oath that Casey did identify Mitnik's client, Zenaida Gonzalez, to the detective.

    "Why, is that not a question of fact that may have to be decided in trial," said Judge Rodriguez. "I have to get my exercise other than by jumping to conclusions."

    Court hearing today in Casey Anthony civil case

    George and Cindy Anthony's portion of the hearing will be rescheduled.

    Sarah Lundy | Sentinel Staff Writer
    10:11 AM EDT, May 21, 2009

    We won't learn this morning if George Anthony and Cindy Anthony will have to answer questions they initially refused in interviews in the defamation case against their daughter.

    That's because Brad Conway, the lawyer representing the Anthonys, can not make this morning's hearing.

    Attorneys in the case against Casey Anthony will be back in court at 10:30 a.m.

    This time the issue was supposed to be whether Orange Circuit Court Judge Jose R. Rodriguez will force the Anthonys and their son, Lee Anthony, to answer questions they initially refused in interviews.

    UPDATED: Anthony's Friend Says She Never Heard Of Nanny
    Hearing For Civil Case Rescheduled
    POSTED: 10:15 am EDT May 21, 2009
    UPDATED: 4:52 pm EDT May 21, 2009
    <snipped>
    Annie Downing, a friend of Casey Anthony, was deposed at the Orlando law firm Morgan & Morgan on Thursday.

    Downing said she never heard of a nanny Casey Anthony called Zenaida Gonzalez. Casey Anthony named Gonzalez as the woman who baby-sat Caylee and kidnapped her.

    As someone close to Casey Anthony, Downing's testimony contradicts the testimonies of the Anthony family, including Casey, who all claimed they knew "Zanny the Nanny."

    Lawyers for Gonzalez, of Kissimmee, said Downing's denials help their client prove she had nothing to do with Caylee's disappearance. But it also damages Casey Anthony's alibi in the criminal case.

    A hearing in the civil lawsuit against Casey Anthony was rescheduled on Thursday morning because of a health problem for one of the attorneys.

    We won't learn this morning if George Anthony and Cindy Anthony will have to answer questions they initially refused in interviews in the defamation case against their daughter.

    That's because this morning's hearing was cancelled after Brad Conway, the lawyer representing the Anthonys, informed Orange Circuit Court Judge Jose R. Rodriguez that he could not make the hearing.

    Hearing Canceled Due To Attorney Hurting Back
    Posted: 10:41 pm EDT May 20, 2009
    Updated: 12:28 pm EDT May 21, 2009
    <snipped>
    Circuit Judge Jose Rodriguez was to hear the Motion to Compel in the Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez vs. Casey Anthony civil case Thursday morning. However, the hearing had to be cancelled, but not before the judge asked Zenaida's attorney to come to court.

    "I got a phone call from Brad Conway, who is counsel for the witnesses, Cindy and George Anthony, which are the primary purpose of today's meeting, and said he had thrown his back out and could not be here this morning," explained Zenaida's attorney, Keith Mitnik. "I then called Lee Anthony's attorney and told him because &#8230; I wanted to do them together &#8230; For strategic reasons and a lot of reasons it made sense to put it off."

    Mitnik said he called the judge's office and sent an email about the plan to cancel, but the judge preferred a face-to-face approach to have a record of the change of plans.

    She walked in with her attorney and did not speak to reporters. Downing was wearing a bracelet with this inscription: Caylee, always in our hearts.

    The deposition, which was held behind closed doors, concluded just before 2:30 p.m.

    Casey Anthony: What will former pal tell Zenaida Gonzalez's lawyers?
    posted by halboedeker on May 21, 2009 12:39:44 PM
    <snipped>
    This afternoon, Gonzalez's attorneys are to depose Annie Downing, a former friend of Casey Anthony. "She could be a key witness," Gonzalez attorney Keith Mitnik told WKMG. Mitnik said his understanding was Downing was "a best friend in the middle of all this" and "could have critical information for us."

    "We could hear some pretty revealing testimony," Bolden said.

    "Annie is one of Casey's close friends," WFTV-Channel 9's Kathi Belich said.

    In other news at noon today, WKMG anchor Erick Weber said the station "had just learned the Florida Bar is ratcheting up its investigation into Casey Anthony's criminal attorney Jose Baez." The issue: Did Baez instruct a private investigator to avoid alerting 911 if the man found Caylee's remains? The matter has been been forwarded to the Bar's grievance committee, Weber said.

    3 Complaints Filed With Fla. Bar Against Baez
    Posted: 1:26 pm EDT May 21, 2009
    Updated: 1:33 pm EDT May 21, 2009

    The complaints are being heard by a grievance committee, which is the second step in the process.

    Circuit Judge Stan Strickland is one of three people who have filed complaints against Baez.

    Another complaint involves private eye Dominic Casey's claim in a police interview that he was told not to call 911 if he found Caylee's body.

    The person who filed the third complaint has not been identified.

    During the deposition, Downing said the first time she ever heard the name Zenaida Gonzalez was on the news, not from Anthony.

    "(Downing) could be a key witnesses. She is one of the witnesses that should say &#8211; she was, in my understanding, a best friend in the middle of all of this &#8211; could have critical information for us. We just won't know until we get there," Gonzalez's attorney Keith Mitnik said before the depositions.

    Casey Anthony: Pal says she never mentioned Zenaida or Zanny
    posted by halboedeker on May 21, 2009 5:38:28 PM

    The importance of Downing's insights? Her testimony contradicted Anthony family members, who said they heard Casey mention the nanny, Kealing said. Downing also said that Casey Anthony had never mentioned Zenaida Gonzalez, Kealing added.

    Gonzalez's lawyers said Downing's deposition helped their client and gave insights into the Anthony family, Kealing reported.

    Casey and her mother, Cindy, had clashed over Caylee, Downing explained. Gonzalez attorney John Dill summed up the situation, "Cindy [was] kind of overstepping her bounds as far as being the mom to Caylee and how that was ... an ongoing point of friction between the two of them."

    Casey Anthony&#8217;s friend deposed
    Updated: Thursday, 21 May 2009, 6:37 PM EDT
    Published : Thursday, 21 May 2009, 6:17 PM EDT

    For an hour and thirteen minutes Thursday, Casey Anthony's former best friend, Annie Downing, was grilled by attorneys.

    Did Cindy -- or did you ask Casey at any time about chloroform? Do you remember that?" asked Zenaida's attorneys. "A Yeah, I did the first time that we were over there. I did ask her that, Casey. She said they're cleaning supplies in the back of my cars, which I believe because that family cleans 24/7. Like everything they have is spotless, and it wouldn't surprise me if there was cleaning supplies, something in the back of her car. There always was," said Downing.

    Downing said while she'd never met or heard of Zenaida Gonzalez from Casey, she did believe in her gut that Caylee did have a nanny or a babysitter. She just wasn't sure if that babysitter was male or female.
