No Alarms & No Surprises: Judge denies request to Cancel Casey/ZG trial

From WESH.com:

“Judge Lisa Munyon denied Casey Anthony’s request on Thursday to dismiss the civil trial against her.

Munyon released a summary judgment for both Zenaida Gonzalez and Casey. Gonzalez’s attorneys asked Munyon to rule in her favor instead of going to trial in January. Munyon denied that motion.

Casey’s attorneys asked the judge to dismiss the trial altogether, but Munyon denied that motion.

Munyon did rule that Gonzalez cannot use statements that Casey made to law enforcement about Gonzalez. Gonzalez can only use statements Casey made to her friends and family about her, according to the judge.

Gonzalez is suing Casey for defamation. She says Casey ruined her reputation when she said a nanny with the same name kidnapped her daughter, 2-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony, in 2008.

The trial is set to begin on Jan. 2, 2013. The pretrial conference will be held in December.

Casey’s attorneys said that the case has no merit.

Attorney’s said that Casey never identified Gonzalez as “Zanny the Nanny” when she was shown pictures of Gonzalez. Documents show Casey said, “That’s not her.”

“The fact of the matter is this plaintiff, Zenaida Gonzalez, is not ‘Zanny the Nanny,’ no matter how badly she wants to be,” said Greene.

Another point Casey’s attorney’s make was that Casey claimed her made up nanny was Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, not Zenaida Gonzalez like the plaintiff signs her name.

Gonzalez put herself in the public eye by conducting interviews, according to the documents filed by Casey’s attorneys.

The last point attorneys made in their motion for dismissal was only after Gonzalez showed her face on TV did she received impolite and unwanted comments from the strangers.

Cindy Anthony made a declaration in support of her daughter. Cindy said the plaintiff does not even in the slightest resemble the woman her daughter described as Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez.”

I’m not too surprised with this latest BS ruling, but I know January 2013 is a long way away…

  1. I am feeling Sick now. This case should have been dismissed! Casey has done nothing to this woman! When does Casey win and get some justice? But january is a long way away anything could happen between now and then. At least she won’t have to be there. When her probation ends she will move far away from Florida I hope.

      Let’s not worry about it. Casey is winning and let’s support her to ensure that she completes her probationary period and see that she moves on in life.

  2. Florida seems to be a place where political and media pressure trumps law and reason. First there was the state charging Casey with capital murder with bogus evidence, all to appease the Nancy Grace
    crowd. The the Zimmerman indictment, which Cheney Mason rightly calls political prostitution, all to appease the media and the race hustlers. And now this ridiculous ruling. Munyon strikes me as a solid
    judge, so this can only be explained as appeasing the mob. But her ruling also makes it harder for Morgan ans Morgan to prove their case. It’s not all bad for Casey., specially since the trial is 10 months away. And she is well-represented.

  3. I’m surprised! I didn’t see anyway this was going to trial. So I wonder what happens in the meantime.

  4. i just cant belive this casey never picked her out of a line up but the case can go to trial what the hell is going on in fla and then the zimmerman case i just in shock i live in oklahoma where we have the stand your ground i can chase you down the street with my pistol and shoot to kill but apparently not to nancy the DEVIL grace

  6. This is outrageous! The judicial system is broken. I feel like puking! This case should have been dismissed!

    Hi SJ….is there anything new on Casey? I hate what is happening in Florida AGAIN, but glad the HATE is directed at someone besides Casey!

    • Hi Marilyn! There’s no “new news” in that sense – not just yet anyway. I also just sent you an email.
      Have a great day, and thanks for posting!

  8. I thinl that ZG is just trying to get paid for this. Casey has been found not guilty let’s just let her get on with her life. She has no money so what does this woman think she’s gonna get from her? Leave her alone and let her live her life. She has been tormented through all this tragedy. Let her heal!!

  9. anonymous says:

    Doesn’t the media have any responsibility for how they heightened and spread what Casey said or didn’t say throughout the whole entire case? It’s not Casey’s fault. If media took things and heightened a bunch of things then it’s the media’s fault for widespread defamation of this lady.
