Casey Anthony: Insufficient Funds (Part Uno)
December 2nd, 2009
As a break from my recent juvenile rants about other lawyers’ cluelessness, I am going to address a more serious legal issue; the significance of Casey Anthony’s check fraud case in relation to her First Degree Murder case.
This will be the first of a two part series and this first post will discuss why the State would want to try the Check Fraud case before the First Degree Murder case. The second post will discuss how the defense will likely try to avoid trying the Check Fraud case first.
“The evidence of Casey Anthony’s thirteen felony convictions should be considered by you … in weighing the credibility of the statements attributed to Casey Anthony.”

UPDATED: WFTV Legal Expert Analyzes Casey Motions
Posted: 5:27 pm EST December 2, 2009
Updated: 6:48 pm EST December 2, 2009
WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer calls it a long shot.
"I've never seen or heard of a case where a judge has gone behind the state's motives and dismissed the death penalty," Sheaffer said.
However, Sheaffer does believe another motion to keep the jail from videotaping attorney visits does have merit.
In a final motion, the defense wants to keep private eye Dominic Casey from a deposition since they claim he was working for the defense and any knowledge he has of the case is privileged attorney-client information.
Casey is facing charges for stealing checks from her best friend. The fraud trial is set for January 25.

Casey Anthony's defense to make arguments about jail recordings, death-penalty
December 2, 2009
Exactly one year after Caylee Marie Anthony's remains were found, defense lawyers will argue why a judge should prohibit prosecutors from seeking the death penalty against the toddler's mother.
The two other motions to be discussed at the upcoming hearing are aimed at videotapes and other recordings of Anthony at the Orange County Jail.
Local and national media, including the Orlando Sentinel, filed legal documents to persuade Strickland to release the video. However, Strickland acknowledged the Sentinel's request and ruled against it.
In June, Orange Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland ordered the court to seal that video.

How the Grinch Stole Casey Anthonys Christmas
It was recently announced that Judge Strickland will address four of the Casey Anthony Defense Teams motions at a hearing on December 11, 2009.
Unfortunately though, I think that this interlude will not provide Ms. Anthony with any early Christmas cheer, as it appears that Santa will not be giving her anything on her Christmas wish list she must have been a naughty girl this year, tsk tsk
Oh Casey, just what have your attorneys done?
