Lawyers for Casey Anthony have filed suit in bankruptcy court to prevent one of her creditors from selling her life story.
Bankruptcy trustee Stephen Meininger considers Anthony’s story an asset akin to any other and is seeking the rights in perpetuity to that story as a way of earning money, according to various reports, including the Associated Press and the Orlando Sentinel.
Anthony’s daughter, Caylee Marie, was last seen in June 2008 but was not reported missing until July 15 of that year. Florida authorities a few months later accused Anthony of killing her daughter with chloroform and duct tape, and the case made national headlines.
In 2011, she was found not guilty of killing her daughter by a jury that convicted Anthony of four counts of lying to police. She was sentenced to time already served in jail.
