Late Wednesday afternoon, it was revealed that Zenaida Gonzales has hired local ‘high profile’ attorney John Morgan and filed a civil lawsuit against Casey Anthony for defamation. What took her so long? I was thinking the ambulance chasers would have been hot on the trail of this one long ago. I guess they ethically have to approach her carefully but I’m surprised, frankly, that it took her so long to lawyer up. The minute that B!TCH said ANYTHING about me, knew personal details and dragged my name through the mud I would have put the SMACK down!! I feel really sorry for ZG and I hope she wins this case. Its being reported that Casey’s attorney Jose Baez is counting on entertainment/production deals in lieu of payment from Casey or her family. Though Lifetime TV denies it, some are saying that they’ve offered and entered into a contract for the story to the tune of over $2 million. YUCK! I feel sick. :(
And for even more ICK….
Leonard Padilla, of cowboy hat, OrLAHndo, bounty hunter, bail bondsman fame has come out recently against Jose Baez saying he broke his promise to beef up security when Casey was bonded out to the Anthony home. Evidently he wanted the chaos outside w/protesters and media in order “to ramp up the drama” the night Casey was arrested at her parents’ house. He whined like a tiny baby, after the fact, blaming Law Enforcement for not allowing him to surrender her w/dignity. (Uh, reality to Jose? -your client waved buh-bye to dignity soo long ago!) He conveniently showed up at the Anthony home for the media scrum -after her arrest and held a marathon news conference slamming investigators for the show.
