A hearing is scheduled Friday at 11:00am in the case against Casey, on the release of Caylee Anthony's autopsy results. Casey Anthony is not expected to attend the hearing.
"Every time there's a motion filed to block the release of something what do you assume? You assume that there must be something inflammatory and damning," said WFTV Legal Analyst Bill Sheaffer.
Sheaffer says Caylee's grandparents have no legal standing in the case to ask the judge to seal a public record and says there is no legal basis for their argument.
"Unless there's a legal basis other than emotional distress, which is not a legal basis, this judge will not block the release of this public document," Sheaffer explained.
The hearing may last fifteen minutes and the judge said he is not inclined to seal public records.

Hearing to determine release of autopsy report in Casey Anthony case
Casey Anthony's parents don't want the public record released to the media.
11:06 AM EDT, June 18, 2009
Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, don't want the report, which is public record, released to the media. In a request to the judge, Anthony's attorney, Brad Conway, wrote that the release would "cause great anguish to the Anthony family" as they continue to struggle with the loss of their only granddaughter.
The Anthony family don't want to have to endure "endless comment and speculation in the media and public forums" about how their Caylee died.
The Orlando Sentinel is requesting the report and plan to have an attorney at the hearing.
Casey Anthony will not be there.
Neighbor: Casey Borrowed Shovel

Anthony's travels on June 18, 2008, put her near the area where Caylee's body was found six months later, Local 6 reporter Tony Pipitone said. Caylee was 2 when she was last seen alive on June 16, 2008.
The same day last summer, neighbor Brian Burner said Anthony asked to borrow a shovel.
"Casey had approached me and said that she couldn't find the key to their shed and wanted to know if she – if I had a shovel she could borrow to dig up a bamboo root that she's been tripping over," Burner told investigators in an interview last July.
Burner said he gave Anthony the shovel and her demeanor appeared normal, but the fact that she had backed her car up to the family garage was unusual.
Cell phone records show Anthony was near the area where Caylee's body was dumped around 4 p.m.
After testing samples from the trunk of Anthony's car, scientists said that a decomposing body may have been lying in the trunk for around two days.
