Casey Anthony will have to speak at deposition, attorney says
Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez suing for defamation
ORLANDO, Fla. – Casey Anthony will be deposed next month in a civil case filed by Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, and Anthony will not be able to plead the Fifth, according to attorney Matt Morgan.
Morgan, who represents Fernandez-Gonzalez, tweeted Thursday morning that Anthony's deposition has been scheduled.
Fernandez-Gonzalez is suing Anthony for defamation, saying her reputation was damaged after Anthony claimed her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was kidnapped in 2008 by a nanny with a similar name -- Zenaida Gonzalez.
Anthony's attorney has said that details Anthony offered about the accused baby sitter did not match Fernandez-Gonzalez and clearly showed Anthony wasn't talking about her.
Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death of Caylee in 2011. Her attorney, Jose Baez, said in opening statements that Caylee drowned in the family swimming pool.
Texas EquuSearch, a group that performed several searches for Caylee after she was reported missing, is also suing Anthony.
