    to my above post I'd like to add that not only, allegedly, did Baez have a second retainer agreement with Casey but Linda Kenney Baden also had one..(Baden said after leaving the case that she did not expect to receive any money to cover her retainer).
    Baez knew Casey had no money because he had to sell her pics in order to defend her before she was even charged with Murder in October...Was Linda apprised of this before agreeing to join the team in December and signing a retainer agreement with Casey? (not that I care...Just curious about the procedure)
    .Just how did these (or any) attorneys expect to get payment from a criminal defense client who had no money or assets of her own ...besides the photos.

    Why do hospitals bill people they never expect to get paid from? Whether he expected to get paid or not, his time is worth something. Perhaps the retainer agreement would satisfy tax records as a loss if he never gets paid?

    $4,000.00 a month in rent? Still living above her means on someone else's dime, I see.

    yes,perhaps your are correct
    yes his time is worth something..not disagreeing on that point..one either declares to work pro bono or not..I have no issues with that
    I am only looking at it from a Business/financial viewpoint..tax write off makes sense

    iMO..if an invoice for payment is sent IMO there is a reasonable assumption that the person/company /institution like a hospital who sent the invoice expects payment ....off course people/companies don't pay their bills but i believe the expectation to get paid for services exists....
    unless the parties agreed to work for free or give merchandise for free then I believe an expectation to get paid does exist...


    If I receive an invoice from a supplier or service provider it tells me they expect to get paid
    If I submit an invoice then I expect to get paid...where I do or not is another matter
    when I send an invoice out for my employer who is in the medical field she expects to be paid...by the individual, via insurance or govt assistance...but the expectation is there ...where she gets paid or not

    I truly believe Jose nor Chaney every thought she would get off. I believe they thought she would go down on at murder charge and then THEY were going to be billionaires off her books, movies etc. when she was acquitted their ship started sinking. MOO

    What I find bizarre is that a bill for $500K can be submitted, particularly when there has been no previous mention of it, without any attempt at itemizing- to a bankruptcy court of all places... If you are in the medical field you know every bill lists every item purchased, room rate or special unit charges, every med used, every piece of equipment used, all professional services described in detail, any procedure is accompanied by a code that is used by payors that will have a standard fee attached. To just hand over a bill for $500K for a professional service without delineating what was done for that amount is just not done... IMO he
    just pulled that number out of his hat, to smooth her path through bankruptcy !

    I do not plan on buying the book but IF it is available at my local library I will read it..I like to read/hear all sides of a debate, etc...

    After reading my post below I will not be surprised if some (or many) of you will say she deserves it...but I find it reprehensible that he has said she owes him for legal representation when he gave his time and services free of charge

    BBM
    I find it quite distasteful that Mason, who agreed and signed on to work PRO BONO, keeps harping about how much money he lost representing Casey.
    He began mentioning how much $$$ he lost in an interview after the trial was over..and he keeps bringing it up.

    he decided to join the defense team and chose to work Pro Bono...end of story. He also brought on other attorneys who worked pro bono ( ie Ann Finnel Death Penalty lawyer)

    Now he says she owes him??? I think NOT. He should not be manipulating her in a way to get her to do something in order for him to recoup revenue for services he gave freely. He chose to Pro Bono work.


    He keeps saying in articles that he has no regrets...IMO expect he lost $$$ representing her...

    http://mynews13.com/content/news/cf...icles/cfn/2014/6/28/cheney_mason_intervi.html
    He says he has no regrets about the Casey Anthony trial except that he spent many tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket for the pro bono case incurring over a million dollars in billable hours from which he collected not one dime.

    Help! LOL

    Can someone explain to me how CA and Mason committed bankruptcy fraud? (I just saw this thread, skimmed through, and am confused.)

    Well, long story short... the bankruptcy court wanted to auction off the rights to her story, to pay off some of her creditors or expenses, since it could be considered by some to be a valuable asset. Mason and Casey insisted that her life story was private and she had no plans to write her story at that time or any time in the future, and was not negotiating with anyone to sell her story. I have to say I think the Bankruptcy Trustee was very naïve in accepting that statement from her, but he allowed her to retain the rights for $25K. Also there was the difficult problem of Zenaida and Roy Kronk's lawsuits , and that was the strongest reason she had to file bankruptcy, a ploy to try and cheat them out of any potential settlement.
    Fast forward- now comes Mr Namey who claims he was hired to ghost write her story, in July 2012. As time went by he became more and more convinced that she was guilty of killing Caylee, and he quit. He claims to have been privy to discussions about their strategy for avoiding those lawsuits and for falsely claiming bankruptcy, and was aware of ongoing discussions for millions of $ in agreements for pay per interview and a book.. . In his book he states he has documents and tape recordings that will prove they have both committed bankruptcy fraud.. so we are all waiting to see what the proof is exactly and how the Bankruptcy court will respond.

    none of this is legal and if said poster has this knowledge then they need to go to the bar and file a complaint. Then; call the IRS...to account for the 500K start there. IT's just that simple. We will strip her of her luxuries one by one until she has nothing. Like before, Remember Casey?

    Foreword by Casey Anthony There is little doubt in my mind that Cheney Mason saved my life. Without his wisdom, strategy and dedication to my defense, the outcome would have been very different. In my own opinion, the best and smartest thing Jose’ Baez ever did was to bring Cheney Mason on board my defense team. Though Jose’ and I have had our differences, Cheney remains my attorney and continues to have my total confidence. Because I am not a lawyer, some of what is contained in this book is as much a revelation to me as it will be to you. Though I was kept advised of my defense, as any client should be by any decent attorney, I did not know every detail of the strategy of this case until I read it here. What I knew without a doubt, was that I was not guilty. I knew that the cry of “Justice for Caylee,” could not possibly have been fulfilled unless the mother who loved and cared for her every day of her life was justly acquitted of having any involvement in her death. I thank God, Cheney, and my amazing defense team for making that happen. Yes, I did some things I am not proud of. I have been justifiably punished. I have no more to say about that here and now. I do have a story of my own, and at some point I plan to tell it. Until then, this is Cheney’s story. I am honored that he asked me to write this foreword. It is the story of the great work of a legal genius who saved me from a lynch mob. I hope you read it in that spirit. Yours Very Truly, Casey Marie Anthony

    And, I have to add my postscript- Casey mentions herself 29 times, and Caylee once.. nothing has changed!

    Didn't Namey sign a non-disclosure agreement? (Thought I read that somewhere.) Seems to me he'll have a heck of a lawsuit on his hands. I'm still not sure if and what Casey did was illegal? CM, well...that may be a different story, but doubt if he's even touchable down Florida way. Sad to say.
