Depos Scheduled For Lab Experts In Casey Case
Casey Anthony’s defense team has scheduled its depositions of the experts at the Oak Ridge Laboratories in Tennessee. That lab was involved in the air tests on Casey's trunk that showed evidence of human decomposition.
Court documents show Casey's lawyers will question five lab experts under oath over two days starting July 13. They'll be done at the University of Tennessee, which is affiliated with the lab.

Death penalty expert Lyon leaves Casey Anthony defense
Lead Anthony attorney Jose Baez confirmed today that Lyon has left the defense because of financial issues. He filed paperwork with the Orange County Clerk of Court's office late today reflecting Lyon's departure.
"We're sad to see her leave, but we completely understand that it's a fiscal reason," Baez said.
He said Lyon will remain "fully accessible to us if we need her at any time."
One of Casey’s lawyers quits case
Andrea Lyon is the second lawyer to depart from the case in less than six months.
She's actually losing money being a part of the case.
In the 13 months she spent on this case, Lyon was paid $22,500, which is almost 10 percent of the $250,000 Anthony's defense team spent before she was declared indigent.
