ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Attorneys for Casey Anthony are asking for a venue change in her upcoming defamation trial.
Her attorneys filed paperwork this week seeking to have the trail moved out of Orange County. The Orlando Sentinel reports the attorney's argued that Anthony can never get an impartial jury due to pretrial publicity.
Anthony was acquitted last year of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Her attorneys argue that "the local media refuses to move on" and that the public feels as though "justice was not served" in the criminal case.
After Caylee disappeared in the summer of 2008, Anthony told investigators that a babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez had kidnapped the toddler. Gonzalez later sued Anthony, claiming her reputation had been ruined.
The lawsuit is set for trial in January.
