Casey Anthony will have to answer questions about some mysterious “audio tapes” she allegedly recorded after being acquitted of murder in her daughter’s death.

In January, Anthony’s “video diary” was made public on the Internet. In the video, Anthony references some additional audio tapes she recorded as part of her diary.

The attorneys for the woman suing Anthony for defamation want to know more about those audio tapes. Zenaida Gonzalez is suing Anthony, claiming she was harassed and threatened after Anthony came up with a fictitious nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez. Anthony said the woman was also known as “Zanny the Nanny” and she accused her of kidnapping her daughter, Caylee.

In October, Judge Lisa Munyon ordered Anthony to hand over the audio tapes to Gonzalez’s attorneys, but Anthony claimed the audio tapes do not exist.

Gonzalez’s attorneys want Anthony to answer questions about the tapes. On Tuesday, Munyon agreed and ordered Anthony to answer those questions under oath in a deposition that will be conducted at a later date.

Anthony’s attorneys are asking for something, too. On Wednesday, Munyon will hear arguments from both sides about whether to grant Anthony’s attorneys’ request to strike punitive damages from Gonzalez’s lawsuit.

Punitive damages are different than compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are meant to compensate a plaintiff after a loss caused by the defendant. Punitive damages go above and beyond that in certain circumstances to punish the defendant and are meant to prevent the behavior in the future.
