Casey Anthony to testify under oath in deposition, reports say

Casey Anthony will be testifying next month under oath in a deposition in connection with a defamation lawsuit filed against her by Zenaida Gonzalez, media reports say.

Gonzalez alleges that Anthony defamed her and damaged her reputation when she claimed that a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez had taken her daughter Caylee, who was reported missing in July 2008 -- a month after she was last seen. The girl's remains were found in December of that year.

Authorities were never able to find the nanny. But they did find Gonzalez, the plaintiff in this case, who claimed she never met Anthony or her daughter.

"Casey Anthony will not be permitted to plead the 5th as her appeals have now been resolved," Zenaida attorney Matt Morgan told the Orlando Sentinel. "We look forward to getting answers to the questions we have had for a very long time."

Anthony was acquitted of murder and other charges tied to the death of her 2-year-old daughter.
