the clown before the storm?

It’s been very quiet in the Casey Anthony case lately, though a hearing is set for August 21, 2009.

Perhaps this is the calm before the storm? 

Here in Florida there are two Tropical Storms brewing:  Ana (that’s Ah-Nah, not Ann-a, or so say the hurricane prognosticators!), and Bill – just plain Bill.  But, Bill could also be just plain scary.

They say that Ana is destined to stay a Tropical Storm, but Bill, they say, will become a Category 3 Hurricane.  It is anyone’s guess what will actually unfold in the coming days. 

Just as Ana and Bill approach Florida, new storms are brewing in the Casey Anthony case.  If weather permits (barring Ana or Bill landfall), August 21st will bring the media circus back to town as Corporate Camp Anthony prepares for a hearing in Judge Strickland’s courtroom. 

Jose Baez has filed three motions in his three ring circus.  The three motions are related to the following:

  • Request to certify Tim Miller of Equusearch, as a witness in the case. 
  • Delay the check fraud case until after the murder trial.  This motion may be granted to the Defense – bringing the fraud case before the murder case could be harmful to Casey Anthony’s right to a fair trial for the murder of her daughter, Caylee.  Also, the Defense claims they are too busy with the murder case to attend to this matter.
  • Lastly, Strickland will hear a motion for Protective order, intended to bar Leonard Padilla, Tony Padilla, Tracy McLaughlin, and Robert Dick from testifying in the case. Baez claims these individuals are covered under an attorney-client privilege and should not testify.

These all seem to be compelling items that may bring some thunder, lightning and heavy winds to Orlando

It is unclear whether Casey Anthony will be at the hearing, though it is presumed she will be.  

So, regardless if Ana and Bill stay away, it sure could be a stormy week in Orlando.

The hearing is set to begin at 9:30 a.m.
