Prosecution files motion to try and force Baez to tell how he’s paying for the “Dream Team”
The prosecutors in the Caylee Anthony case have filed a motion today asking the judge to find out where Casey Anthony is getting the money to pay for her defense team! (8 attorneys and counting according to Jane Velez-Mitchell!) They want Judge Strickland to make Jose Baez produce deposit records, retainer agreements, and licensing arrangements. If any licensing or retainer agreements exist prosecutors want Casey to sign a waiver saying she knows about them.
Baez says he’s used an ethics lawyer from day one, and tomorrow he will file a sworn motion repeating his assertion that he has done nothing unethical.
Baez has refused to say who’s paying for the “dream team” stating it’s not anyone’s business. He says he has, “Done nothing but conduct myself in a most professional manner, and that he has done nothing unethical” when asked how he has built his defense team and what role he has played in raising funds to pay for it.
A lead prosecutor on the case said if he’s made any improper side deals for book or movie rights the arrangement could be, “fraught with potential conflict of interest.” One criminal defense attorney said it could give Casey Anthony grounds to ask for another trial.
Prosecutors said they, “Are not trying to block Baez from representing Casey.”

Well praise Jesus and Hallelujah! It’s about time Jose Baez was made to reveal his hidden agenda. Ain’t no way all those high fallutin’ attorneys and scientists are working pro bono for the likes of Casey Anthony. She’s a sinking ship.
Let’s hope Judge Strickland agrees!
