Casey Anthony’s Lawyer Wants to Depose WESH and WFTV Reporters

Charles Greene, the attorney for Casey Anthony, has filed notice he wants to depose Kathi Belich, a reporter for the Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV, and Michelle Meredith, a reporter for the Orlando NBC affiliate WESH, in a defamation suit against Anthony.

Anthony is being sued for defamation by Zenaida Gonzalez who claims her reputation was ruined when Anthony blamed the disappearance of her daughter, Caylee, on a nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez.

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting Gonzalez also has the two on her witness list.

According to Gonzalez’s witness list, she wants Belich to testify at trial on the “degree of media coverage surrounding the search for Zenaida Gonzalez.”  Meredith is supposed to testify on her “first interview with” Gonzalez.

The Sentinel also said neither station has been served yet,

“We haven’t been served, but as I said before, we’ll fight that one,” said WFTV news director Matt Parcell.

“We/she has not yet received a subpoena,” WESH news director Bob Longo said of Meredith.
