Casey Anthony invoked the Fifth Amendment in video deposition this morning from an undisclosed remote location in Florida, according to her civil attorney Charles Greene.
Anthony wore in large sunglasses and a Philadelphia Phillies baseball cap during the video conferencing, according to The Associated Press.
Fernandez-Gonzalez's claims that Anthony's use of her name damaged her life. She claims she lost her home and job because people believed she may have been involved in Caylee Anthony's disappearance. Fernandez-Gonzalez also alleges that she and her children received threats.
During the deposition, Anthony a few questions and invoked the fifth according to Greene.
"I think there were times where some of the questions irritated her," Morgan told the Associated Press, referring to questions about her parents and her brother's testimony.
The deposition lasted about 45 minutes, John Morgan, attorney for Fernandez-Gonzalez told the Orlando Sentinel .
"We didn't want to turn this into a 2-hour circus," Morgan told the Sentinel. "We asked enough questions and got her to invoke the Fifth enough times that we feel we got enough to take a motion to the judge to compel her to answer these questions.
Morgan said he planned to file a motion to compel Anthony to answer the questions, the Sentinel reported.
"Some say [Fernandez-Gonzalez's case] is frivolous, but what they don't remember is what her and her family went through three or four years ago," Morgan said earlier.
Fernandez-Gonzalez is suing Anthony for using her name when she told Orlando police that her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was stolen by a babysitter and gave police her name. Anthony stuck to that lie for three years before her lawyer told the court at the opening of her murder trial that the babysitter never existed and that Caylee accidentally drowned in the family pool.
Life for the real "Zanny" was disrupted after Anthony's allegations became public. According to Morgan, Fernandez-Gonzalez received terrifying phone calls in the middle of the night in which people had threatened to kill her and her children.
Morgan is very aware of the public's emotional attachment to this case, and is constantly inundated with Casey-related phone calls, especially about the mystery that is her location.
"We get thousands of tips about her whereabouts,and a lot of it doesn't hold its weight in water, but sometimes there's recurring things," said Morgan.
Anthony's attorney is also an outlet for the public's frustration.
"I've gotten threats and many people calling me 'baby killer' and things like that," Greene said. "Many people in the legal community tried to dissuade me from taking this one, but I became a lawyer to to fight against injustices and to take on battles that others won't."
Greene is confident about tomorrow's proceedings, and said that "the good deposition" will be when he questions Fernandez-Gonzalez Nov. 3. He said to "stay tuned" for forthcoming evidence, including a contentious information card that came up during the trial.
Morgan said that Anthony came up with the name of Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez for her fictitious nanny after both women visited the same Florida apartment complex on the same day. After looking at an apartment, Fernandez-Gonzalez filled out an information card, which included the names of two of her daughters and the make and color of her car.
The information on the card is the same as the information Anthony would later tell police.
Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee, but was convicted on four counts of lying to law enforcement. She is currently serving one year of probation in Florida for a check fraud conviction.
Anthony checks in with probation officers monthly, most recently on Oct. 3. A report from the Florida Department of Corrections stated that Anthony was "compliant" and said she is still unemployed, has not attended vocational or educational classes and has made no money in the past month.
The report also stated that Anthony had not used any illegal drugs or controlled substances, and "she did drink alcohol, but says she did not drink to excess." This is in compliance with the terms of her probation, which say she may consume alcohol as long as it is not "to the extent that your normal faculties are impaired."
Anthony will be doing the video deposition from a secret location after the court made a finding that Anthony would be in danger if she appeared in person, as made clear by public outrage to the verdict.
"America is starved for justice, I believe," Morgan said. "At the end of the day, they don't believe she's been held accountable and they're looking for justice in whatever way, shape or form they can get it."
