We all know that CM is going to file to ask for it to be sealed, but I wonder how likely it is that that will happen? Doesn't there have to be a reason for sealing it?
But I wonder if Mason can file to have it sealed, because he filed a Notice of Appearance ONLY to attend the depo -- no other legal filings in the bankruptcy case.
I wonder if her sole surviving bankruptcy attorney, Schrader, would have to file the Motion to seal it?
We saw a few Hearings before the trial where Casey's team wanted to seal something or other, and the attorney for the media/Orlando Sentinel spoke at a Hearing, telling the Judge why it should NOT be sealed, and would not overcome the Florida Sunshine Laws.
There has to be a good LEGAL reason to seal - not just "because".
Also, with the transcript of the October 8, 2011 deposition, where Judge Munyon allowed her to be in disguise and over video for the deposition, the Judge sealed the VIDEO of the deposition, but allowed the TRANSCRIPT of the deposition to be filed and available to the public.

Atty Charles Greene instructed her not to answer
page 5 – The Fourth District has vehemently condemned the practice of instructing a witness not to answer deposition questions, a tactic it considers to be a breach of the standards of professionalism:
[The witness] indeed should have answered, and the arrogance of the defense attorney in instructing the witness not to answer is without legal justification. Nowhere in the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure is there a provision that states that an attorney may instruct a witness not to answer a question.
V. Privilege Cannot Be Invoked By Counsel.
The privilege to invoke the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution is considered so personal that it cannot be invoked by counsel. Not once during the court of Anthony’s deposition, did ANTHONY invoke her Fifth Amendment privilege. Instead, Mr. Greene acting as counsel on behalf of ANTHONY took it upon himself to invoke the Defendant’s Fifth Amendment privilege, despite protest from Plaintiff’s counsel questioning his right to do so.
