A hearing date has been set in Casey Anthony’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy case for May 8, 2013. Zenaida Gonzalez and Roy Kronk filed defamation lawsuits against the infamous former murder defendant and continue their fight to salvage their lawsuits. Both lawsuits were put in jeopardy after Anthony filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in January. Gonzalez sued Anthony after she claimed that a similarly named nanny kidnapped her daughter. Although the nanny did not exist, Gonzalez was linked to the case in the media and claimed this ruined her reputation. Kronk was the man who found Caylee’s body in the woods near Anthony’s home. He filed a lawsuit against Anthony after he claimed her lawyers made statements wrongly implicating him in Caylee’s death.
Anthony has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection, which would discharge her of all debts and any other claims against her. Kronk and Gonzalez have filed motions with Anthony’s bankruptcy judge requesting their suits be exempt from discharge. Anthony’s bankruptcy lawyers filed paperwork stating that she has completed a “personal financial management course,” required of her bankruptcy. In her filings, Anthony listed more than $792,000 in debt and less than $1,100 in assets. Her largest creditor is to her criminal attorney Jose Baez, whom she owes $500,000.
