An attorney for a woman who is suing Casey Anthony for defamation says Anthony will finally have to break her silence and answer questions about why she tried to cover up the fact that her child went missing in July of 2008.
Matt Morgan, who is representing Zenaida Gonzalez in the defamation lawsuit, told HLN Thursday that he believes Anthony will not be allowed to plead the Fifth Amendment in a deposition scheduled for October 9.
Gonzalez claims she was harassed and threatened by people in the community after Anthony devised a fictitious nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez-Fernandez -- also known as "Zanny the Nanny" -- and accused her of kidnapping Anthony's daughter Caylee.
A jury acquitted Anthony on July 5, 2011, of all charges related to her child's death, but convicted her of four counts of lying to law enforcement. She was sentenced to four years. With credit for time served, she was released on July 17.
