Judge allows release of prisoner inmate call to Casey Anthony attorney
In Perry's order, he noted that the conversations are not considered work product because "it is inarguable that he did not 'produce' the recordings of the calls at issue; the prison did."
"Since the recordings were made by the prison in accordance with its procedures, they constitute public records," Perry wrote in his order.

The order also states that the calls do not reveal Baez's impressions or opinions.
"To the contrary, the calls consist solely of Robin Lunceford's factual allegations regarding her contact with fellow inmate Maya Derkovic…the contents of the recordings do not contain any protected opinion work product of counsel exempt from discovery," the order states.

The judge said Baez was notified that his phone call with Robin Lunsford was being recorded, despite his claim that he didn't remember being warned.
The defense says Lunsford has proof that two other inmates made up lies about Casey Anthony.
The judge’s motion does not say when the call will be released.

In his decision, Perry noted that Baez had to push 1 to accept the call, and the judge said Baez had no right to privacy on the call.
“The judge basically saying Jose Baez should have known better,” WOFL anchor Amy Kaufeldt said.
Hornsby said Baez had been “walking an ethical tightrope” for two years and Perry’s ruling had knocked Anthony’s attorney off that tightrope.
