The Case Against Casey
Attorneys can now subpeona Casey Anthony, and they will even find out where she is.
But the public won't.
At a civil hearing Thursday, a judge allowed Zenaida Gonzalez's lawyers to get Casey Anthony's address so they could subpoena her. However, her address will remain sealed to the public.
- IN DEPTH: The Case Against Casey Anthony
Casey Anthony has been in hiding somewhere in Florida since her release from the Orange County Jail in July.
Her civil trial is scheduled for January 2013, but attorneys for Gonzalez, the woman suing her for defamation, said they couldn't move forward if they couldn't reach Casey.
The last time we saw Anthony was in January 2012, when some "video diaries" she recorded leaked online.
Gonzalez's attorneys said they want Anthony to take the stand. But first, they need to find her.
"In 99 percent of the cases, this wouldn't even be an issue, because the whereabouts of the defendant wouldn't be in question," said attorney Matt Morgan, who is representing Gonzalez. "This is a unique case."
"This started with what she did, and I don't think she should be on her back porch with her feet up in the middle of this trial," said Gonzalez attorney Keith Mitnik. "I think she should be in the same uncomfortable seats everybody else is in while we have a day of reckoning."
But while Gonzalez's attorneys said seeing Casey Anthony in court will help their client get closure, Casey's attorney, Charles Greene, said this is nothing more than the plaintiff trying to start another media circus.
"This is one more effort in the infomercial by the plaintiff's council," said Greene. "They're hoping to get an infomercial in January, in the farcical trial that this has become by having Casey Anthony there, so everybody can see her and tune in, and be more interested in it."
According to Greene, Casey has three options: She can comply with the order to appear, appeal it, or ignore it and face civil penalties. She has 10 days to make her decision.
Gonzalez's attorneys also asked for any postings Casey Anthony made on Twitter, but Casey's attorneys said she does not have a Twitter account.
Zenaida Gonzalez said Casey Anthony ruined her life when she said a nanny with the same name kidnapped her missing daughter, Caylee.
During her murder trial, Anthony's defense lawyers admitted there was no "Zanny the Nanny," and Anthony knew her daughter was dead the whole time -- though they claimed Caylee drowned. Anthony was acquitted of murder in July 2011.
