Motion Seeks To Force Dominic Casey To Testify
Attorneys Seek Ruling In Zenaida Gonzalez-Casey Anthony Lawsuit
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Attorneys for Zenaida Gonzalez filed a new motion Monday asking a judge to force the Anthonys' former private investigator to submit to a sworn deposition.
In their new filing in the civil lawsuit against Casey Anthony, Gonzalez' lawyers claim work done by private investigator Dominic Casey is not confidential.
They also cite an 80-page transcript of an interview Dominic Casey did with detectives earlier this year where he spoke freely about certain aspects of the criminal case against Casey Anthony. She is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of her daughter, Caylee, who was 2 when she was reported missing in 2008.
Gonzalez and her team want Dominic Casey to pay for their attorneys' fees, costs and "any other sanctions" the court feels is appropriate.
Dominic Casey worked for a time as an investigator for the Anthonys and their defense attorney Jose Baez. Dominic Casey says he should not be forced to testify because the information he has is protected under the attorney-client privilege.
But Gonzalez' attorneys point to his talk with detectives to show Dominic Casey was "dishonest" in asserting he could not testify in the civil case because of privilege. (PDF: Detectives' Interview With Dominic Casey)
Gonzalez is suing Casey Anthony, claiming she was defamed when Casey Anthony said a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez took Caylee.
