Court will address motions in Casey Anthony case this morning
Orange Osceola State Attorney’s Office said there’s no factual or legal basis for the defense motion asking to remove prosecution from the case. The defense team has accused the State’s Attorney’s Office of leaking info to the media about a Florida Bar investigation of Baez. A spokesman said it’s a rare request and will be tough to prove.
“I view it more as an effort to harass the prosecution team,” Mason said. “If that’s the case, they’re wasting their time.”
Baez claimes that prosecutors wanted the Florida Bar to investigate his dealings. Prosecutors deny the allegation. There has been no hearing date slated for this motion.
Mason said he thinks the judge will side with the defense on a motion to access the crime scene, but he believes it will be a win for prosecutors to force Baez to redo his potential witness list–a virtual carbon copy of the state’s list.
“They listed three, but said the defense includes the state’s witness list,” Mason said. “That’s not good enough.”
Another motion was filed on Thursday, this time by attorney Mark NeJame. He is asking the court to toss out a request to have members of Texas EquuSearch appear as defense witnesses.

Casey Anthony is to appear in court this morning and the hearing will be streamed live on wesh.com. I hadn’t heard about the carbon copy witness list. He didn’t even bother to list the names individually. (Is he just too busy or what? (I bet one of his new law student’s would be happy to take care of that itemized list for him)
Does that mean every witness for the prosecution will also be a witness for the defense?? Someone enlighten me–is that normal??
