Can Baez succeed in removing the prosecution from Casey Anthony’s case?
A new motion was filed late Tuesday by Joe Baez the defense attorney for Casey Anthony who is accused of murdering her daughter Caylee Anthony.
Baez wants a judge to remove state prosecutors form the case. In fact he wants the Attorney Generals office to take over prosecution of the case completely.
In an ‘Emergency Motion to Recuse’ Baez accuses the state attorney’s office of filing complaints against him with the Florida Bar Association. Baez claims they are impeding his client’s right to consul of her choice. (huh??)
Because of that Baez wants to remove state prosecutors from the case and have the Attorney Generals office take over the case.(HUHHH????)
The motions filed late Tuesday joins other motions filed earlier in the day by the defense team. Among them is one that asks the judge to rescind the order to make Casey be at every court hearing.
Baez said to force Casey to appear “only fuels the circus like atmosphere which paints the defendant in a negative light.”
Baez also claims that following court appearances the media is too focused on Casey’s appearance. Baez wrote that the appearance’s “have generated unsubstantiated rumors regarding the defendants physical condition.” and “have generated unsubstantiated rumors regarding the defendants physical condition.”
Baez said the constant negative exposure takes away Casey’s right’s to due process., a fair trial, and her ability to find an impartial jury.
Monday Casey Anthony signed a paper waiving her right to appear at Friday’s pretrial discovery motion.
The problem is Friday’s court date is for a motions hearing where a judge will be making decisions directly related to her case.
It is unknown if Judge Stan Strickland will rule on any of the new motions before or during that hearing.

Good grief I hope Baez doesn’t succeed in having the prosecutors removed! IMO he’s the one they need to get rid of.Nancy Grace said tonight that there’s no way that will happen–I hope she’s right.
