The Battle for Caylee Anthony

If there’s one thing that stands out through this whole debacle, it’s George & Cindy’s total disregard for their own daughter, Casey. They carry on oblivious as if she no longer exists. They only really acknowledge the existence of Caylee from a purely profit motivated standpoint. This is a shining example of total & shameful disrespect for Casey AND the memory of Caylee Anthony.

Now fair enough, Casey’s Pontiac Sunfire car was legally theirs, so they were in their rights to crush it (even though they’d reportedly been offered $250k+ for it) – but as I pointed out a few weeks ago, George & Cindy are also now fighting to get back all the evidence presented during Casey’s trial.

This includes (but is not limited to) Caylee’s bedspread, doll, toys, blankets and many other items. From a purely legal perspective, those specific items belong to Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony. They do NOT belong to the grandparents. Their attempts to claim these items is a definite NO-NO.

Furthermore, after Caylee died, Casey gave her parents power of attorney – and specifically stated she wanted her daughter to be buried so she could visit her grave one day. Despite Casey’s wishes, Cindy had Caylee’s remains cremated. Again, total disregard for Casey’s wishes.

Cindy also had her lawyer, Mark Lippman, trademark the “Caylee Anthony” name. This is not something that either one of them had any legal right to do under Florida Probate law.

Here’s a quote from “LA Late News”:

“But does Lippman have the right to file an intent to use Caylee Anthony? The right to use Caylee’s name for commercial publication for Florida law is codified in 540.08. The statute holds that no person shall use the name or likeness of a deceased person unless they get written authorization from the duly authorized person or “from among a class composed of her or his surviving spouse and surviving children.” By virtue of probate, it would appear that the next of kin, Casey Anthony, the child’s parent, would be the recipient of that right upon her death, not the child’s grandparents.”

So in the cold light of day, neither George, Cindy or Mark Lippman had ANY BUSINESS trade marking Caylee Anthony’s name. They also have NO LEGAL RIGHTS to do so under Florida Probate law. Why? Because Caylee’s name legally belongs to her mother. Would you not think a lawyer would know that? (unless he too has a “vested financial interest” in the trademark, as is more than likely).

Here are both Anthony/Lippman trademark applications from May 2011: [TM-App #1] — [TM-App #2]

Note the specifics of the trade mark. They also want to use Caylee’s name (and “Justice for Caylee”) on T-shirts and underwear!

But how does Casey feel about the grandparents & Lippman applying to trademark Caylee’s name, and blatantly riding roughshod over Casey and Caylee at the same time? Once Casey found out about it, here’s exactly what she thought about it as detailed in one of her jailhouse letters:

B-E-T-R-A-Y-A-L!!! I’m so sick to my stomach even thinking about this. I’ve done everything possible to hold my family together and I continue to get stomped on, thrown under the bus, and it doesn’t surprise me any more when it happens…”

Then to top it all off, after going against Casey’s specific wishes and having Caylee’s remains cremated, they’re now trying to claim ALL Caylee Anthony’s earthly belongings.

They took Caylee’s body… they took her name… and now they’re trying to take everything Caylee ever owned.

So do I believe George & Cindy are the typical “grieving grandparents” here? No. I see them as a pair or unscrupulous money grabbing lying bastards. I make no apologies for using the word “unscrupulous” either.

It’ll be interesting to see how far Dr Phil goes with his interview on 9/12 for sure. Although I think we all know the questions he won’t be asking… one of them being how nice it must be for the happy couple to have turned Caylee into a profit machine for themselves. Not to mention that up to 80% of the funds from Dr Phil’s show will probably end up in their NEW CAYLEE FUND own pockets.

At some future point, there’s gonna be a bus driven by Casey Anthony, it’s gonna be a BIG bus too… and someone’s gonna return the favor by throwing George under it.

Can you guess who that’s gonna be?

Answers on a postcard please…

Casey’s Pontiac Sunfire crushed

With George & Cindy apparently never turning down a money making opportunity, and with Mark Lippman confirming multiple offers had been received for the car just a few weeks ago, it seems odd that George now decides to bypass the $$$’s and have the car crushed instead. It was estimated the car could fetch up to $250k (or even more) at auction.

Back then, Lippan stated (in the video below): “I’ve had multiple offers (*coughs*) to purchase it, and that may be something that’s sold and the money donated to the foundation. They don’t intend to proifit off that car by any means.”

So, could it be that the car still held some incriminating evidence about George’s role in this case… so he thought it more prudent to have the car destroyed and out of the way, rather than put $250k+ into the fund? What do you think?

Here’s the FOX exclusive video with yesterdays “crushing” news:

Key Casey Anthony trial evidence not destined for Ebay

From Casey Anthony’s infamous car to bedding from Caylee’s nursery, attorneys showed hundreds of items of evidence during Anthony’s first-degree murder trial. Where does all that evidence go now?  There’s one place the Anthony family doesn’t want to see it: on eBay.

All of the items remain in the custody of the Clerk of Court’s office, which will hold onto it for at least three and a half years, or until a judge issues an order releasing it to a specific party.  George and Cindy Anthony are already fighting to get hold of it.  Their attorney, Mark Lippman, says the pair doesn’t want it landing in the wrong hands.  “We want it all. We don’t want to leave anything out there that could possibly be sold on eBay or privately, whatever it may be. My clients want it all back to keep, and what they don’t keep, I’ll destroy,” Lippman said.  He said he would go through the evidence piece by piece with the two to decide what gets kept and what doesn’t.

Casey’s car itself was never actually introduced as evidence, only items from inside the car, including the trunk liner.According to Orange County Sheriff’s Office guidelines, if the Anthonys are the rightful owners of the car, they should be able to get it back.
