Casey Anthony files for bankruptcy, lists $500K in unpaid attorney fees

Jan 28, 2013, 03:13 pm CST

Casey Anthony filed for bankruptcy protection in Florida on Friday, claiming nearly $800,000 in liabilities, including about $500,000 in attorney fees.

The filing says Anthony has only about $1,000 in assets, according to the Associated Press and the Orlando Sentinel. Anthony was acquitted of killing her daughter, Caylee, but convicted of four misdemeanor counts for lying to law enforcement. A Florida appeals court overturned two of the misdemeanor convictions the same day that Anthony filed for bankrputcy.

The bankruptcy filing says Anthony is a defendant in three civil suits. One suit was brought by a woman who says Anthony defamed her by claiming a babysitter with the plaintiff’s name had kidnapped Caylee. Another defamation suit was brought by the meter reader who found Caylee’s body. He claims he was defamed when Anthony’s lawyers suggested he could be the killer. A third suit seeks money spent in a search for Caylee.
