TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ The judge presiding over Casey Anthony’s bankruptcy case says he’ll announce in 30 days whether he’ll allow the trustee overseeing it to sell the rights to her life story as a means to pay off her outstanding debts.
Judge K. Rodney May said Tuesday that his is skeptical that the request by the bankruptcy trustee could be used “as an injunction dressed up as a sale.”
May added that his initial thought is that it could be too restrictive on Anthony as she seeks a fresh financial start.
Trustee Stephen Meininger wants to set up a potential auction for “exclusive worldwide rights” for Anthony’s life story.
Anthony lists about $792,000 owed to creditors.
Now 26, she was acquitted of murder in 2011 in the death her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
