Casey Anthony has returned to the public eye once again but not because she chose to do so on her own. This time, Anthony is back in the public eye following a 10-month search by investigators looking for her. She was found at a residence in Florida and was then issued a subpoena for a defamation lawsuit. She could be faced with the task of answering questions in court, under oath, regarding the death of Caylee, her daughter. Anthony was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter not too long ago.

The lawsuit was filed by Zenaida Gonzalez because Anthony told officials that a babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez kidnapped her daughter Caylee. The woman is claiming defamation against Anthony because she holds the exact same name as the woman Anthony made up back in 2008.


“Ms. Gonzalez is happy to hear that Casey Anthony finally will be held accountable just like everybody else,” Gonzalez’s attorney Matt Morgan said.

Anthony has been hiding from the public since she was acquitted last July during her highly publicized trial. The only appearance made in public by Anthony has been on YouTube in videos that were posted featuring her. In the videos, Anthony expressed her ideas on life after her trial and how things were going. During the trial, Anthony never took the stand to speak for herself.

The suit filed by Gonzalez has been permitted to go forward by a judge, who also demanded that Anthony’s lawyers tell of where she is located. Anthony’s lawyers accepted the subpoena on her behalf since she avoided the investigators watching the house. In October, Anthony filmed a deposition for the lawsuit from an unknown location. She was wearing sunglasses, a baseball hat, and a long, black wig. During the testimony, Anthony decided to invoke her Fifth Amendment rights. Prior to the subpoena being filed, Anthony was going to leave the country in September, which would have been after she completed her probation for a charge of check fraud. Instead, Anthony has to return to Orlando to answer questions about the murder of Caylee. The trial will begin on January 2, 2013.
