Investigators have been waiting outside Anthony's residence in Florida for several days to serve her with a subpoena in a defamation action filed by a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez.

Jose Baez, the attorney who represented Casey Anthony, has written a tell-all book about the trial – and says his controversial client won't make any money off of it.
The 352-page book, titled Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, will hit bookstores in July – a year after Anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
"Casey will not financially benefit from this book in any way, shape or form," Baez tells PEOPLE. "This is my story, not hers."

Two psychiatrists who spoke with Casey Anthony before her murder trial reported that she displayed no evidence of having a mental illness, according to deposition transcripts that were unsealed Wednesday.

Casey Anthony says it's weird being on camera, but that's not the weirdest thing about her just-surfaced video diary.
For the first time since her July acquittal of murdering her daughter Caylee, Anthony is speaking out and showing her face – in a personal video diary she says she recorded in October.
Sporting a new look, with a blonde bob and wearing black-framed glasses and a white tank top, Anthony, 25, talks about her life in probation – how happy she is to have a computer, phone and camera she can call her own. She also mentions that she has adopted a dog.
"It's just a little surreal how much things have changed since July, and how many things haven't changed," she says. "But the good thing is that things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. I just hope that things stay good and that they only get better."

Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, but a new movie is set to examine the case through the eyes of a man who believes she escaped justice.
Lifetime is gearing up for a possible TV movie based on the new book Imperfect Justice, Prosecuting Casey Anthony by retired Florida prosecutor Jeff Ashton, Variety is reporting.
The film would tell the story of the three years Ashton and his team spent preparing and prosecuting the Florida woman in a high-profile case that left Ashton feeling Anthony got away with murder.

Retired Florida prosecutor Jeff Ashton calls the trial arguments of Casey Anthony's defense team, which resulted in an acquittal for the accused murderer, "a complete crock of crap" in a new book published Tuesday.
"I've written a book to let people know the truth about the case from my perspective," Ashton tells the Orlando Sentinel of Imperfect Justice, Prosecuting Casey Anthony.
In the 322-page book, the paper reports, the lawyer writes that once her trial was underway Casey told two mental health professionals that her 2-year-old daughter Caylee had drowned in the family swimming pool – deliberately killed by Casey's father, George.
She also told the experts that her father molested her and she feared a similar fate awaited Caylee.
