Lawsuits against Casey Anthony can proceed

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

It's official.  A federal bankruptcy judge has ruled that the two defamation cases against Casey Anthony will move forward through the court system. 

One lawsuit was filed by Roy Kronk, the former Orange County employee who found Caylee Anthony's remains.  Kronk alleges that Anthony's defense attorneys falsely implicated him in Caylee's death.

The other lawsuit was filed by Zenaida Gonzalez, a woman with the same name as the nanny Casey Anthony told investigators kidnapped her child.  Her case revolves around a statement that Anthony made on July 25, 2008 when she claimed that a similarly-named nanny had kidnapped her daughter.

Gonzalez's attorneys will finally get an opportunity to ask Anthony questions under oath during a deposition. 

Gonzalez' attorney, Scott Shuker, spoke about what they hope to learn from Anthony during a deposition.   The time, date and location of the deposition will not be made public for safety reasons. 

Both sides have agreed that video and audio transcripts of the deposition will be filed under seal.  That likely means that the public won't hear from Anthony, until this case goes to trial.

Anthony was acquitted of Caylee's murder in July 2011.
