Casey Anthony’s lawyers were in a Florida court this morning, requesting deposition rules for Tim Miller, the founder of Texas’ Equusearch, who is suing Casey Anthony for approximately $100,000. Miller claims that Anthony sent his organization on a wild goose chase, allowing his team of volunteers and donors to search for Anthony’s missing toddler knowing that she was already dead. Miller claims Anthony allowed the search and rescue organization to expel a significant amount of resources, knowing where Caylees body the whole time. Anthony’s lawyers requested a special master to oversee Miller’s deposition. Anthony’s lawyers are also claiming that Miller is lying about his conversations with Anthony during the period in which his organization searched for Anthony’s dead tot, Caylee Anthony.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the hearing also discussed the appropriate location for Miller’s deposition. His non-profit company is located in Texas, however, he will likely be deposed in Florida. Circuit Court Judge Lisa T. Munyon has yet to rule on any of Anthony’s lawyers requests, including whether or not Miller would be disposed as an individual or the CEO of his non-profit company.
Tim Miller, started his non-profit search and rescue organization in 2000, after his daughter Laura Miller went missing. Laura vanished in 1984 when she was 16-years-old. A year and half after her disappearance, her skeletal remains were found in a field near family’s Texas home. Laura Miller had been killed by a serial killer, along with several other girls whose remains were found in the same area. Miller says the lack of information the police provided prevented him from finding her body earlier.
Miller filed a lawsuit against Casey Anthony after his efforts failed to find Casey Anthony’s dead toddler Caylee. He claims Anthony’s parents called Equusearch in 2008 and pleaded for him to help in the search of Caylee. He claims that Anthony told Miller that she was certain Caylee was alive. Milelr says during the time of the search, he had to turn down multiple requests from families seeking Miller’s help in locating their missing children.
Anthony was later acquitted of her 2-year-old daughters death after a tip lead police to an area where Caylee’s skeletal remains were found near the Anthony home.
