This morning Casey Anthony gave video evidence in the defamation lawsuit against her.
The testimony was part of the case brought against her by Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, a woman who claims Anthony defamed her by ruining her reputation.
When Caylee went missing in 2008, Anthony blamed a fictional nanny, Zanny, for the disappearance of her daughter. However, at the time, authorities found no such nanny existed.
John Morgan, Gonzalez’ lawyer, used videoconferencing to question Anthony, who was in a secret, remote, location in Florida.
He claimed Anthony came up with the name of Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez after both women visited the same Florida apartment complex on the same day.
Fernandez-Gonzalez filled out an information card, which included the names of two of her children and details of her car, which is the same Anthony later told police.
Anthony wore a Philadelphia Philllies baseball cap, dark sunglasses and a long, dark-haired wig during her testimony, Morgan said.
Although she appeared irritated, Morgan told the Orlando Sentinel that Anthony was “composed” during the deposition.
“She did not want to be there,” he said, noting that she had “deep breathing, nostrils flaring.”
The questioning lasted about 45 minutes.
Anthony’s attorney, Charles Greene, repeatedly invoked the Fifth Amendment as she answered questions. The Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution protects witnesses from being forced to incriminate themselves.
