Casey Anthony Bankruptcy Hearing Postponed
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A federal judge presiding over Casey Anthony's bankruptcy has postponed a hearing until later this month to allow time to look at issues surrounding two defamation suits against the central Florida woman.
On Wednesday, Judge K. Rodney May heard from attorneys representing two people suing Anthony for defamation. The attorneys say that their suits should be exempt from the bankruptcy discharge; Anthony's attorneys say they should not.
May hasn't decided whether the defamation suits should be resolved in state court, or settled in the federal court system.
He set the next court date for May 30.
Anthony was acquitted almost two years ago of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, following a lengthy trial that attracted worldwide attention.
Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January, claiming just $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities.
