The high profile bankruptcy case of acquitted mother, Casey Anthony, has been hitting headlines for weeks. After much deliberation about the possibility of a “media circus”, the court has ruled that her bankruptcy hearing will stay in Tampa.
Casey Anthony has been in the forefront of accusation and identified as the face of injustice since she was acquitted on charges related to her 2-year-old daughter a few years ago. Since her multiple month long trial ended, Anthony has continued to face legal battles. Listing close to $800,000 in debt liabilities, $500,000 of which is owed to her defense attorney, Anthony enters bankruptcy court with only a reported $1,084 in assets.
Having filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy a few weeks ago, Anthony has been receiving threatening letters claiming she is again “playing the victim”. Despite obvious cause for concern the presiding bankruptcy judge ruled against transferring the case to Orlando, citing that both cities are located in the same federal court district.
