Casey Anthony, 22, filed a counter lawsuit against Orlando resident Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez, after Gonzalez sued her days earlier for saying she was the baby sitter Anthony left then 2-year-old Caylee with when she vanished.
Anthony is jailed on first-degree murder and other charges in the disappearance of her little girl, who police presume is dead. Investigators don't believe her story that she left Caylee with Gonzalez, and have released evidence they say proves Anthony killed her.
Anthony's attorney Jose Baez countersued Gonzalez Friday on the grounds that her lawsuit is "frivolous" and simply a publicity stunt by her lawyer.
Baez says Gonzalez filed her litigation "to harass and embarrass" Anthony, and her attorney John Morgan is attempting to "generate publicity for his law firm."
Gonzalez formally sued Anthony, saying that she was wrongfully accused of kidnapping Caylee and the information Anthony gave to police was "done with malice." She said she has never met Anthony or her family.
A spokesman for Casey's attorney says the woman who filed suit isn't the woman Casey left Caylee with.
"The Zenaida Gonzalez that Ms. Anthony was referring to drove a different car; she had a different name and she had less [sic] children than the plaintiff has," the counter claim says. "In Orange County, Florida, alone, there are more than 20 listings for a Zenaida Gonzalez, and the plaintiff cannot prove that she has been defamed."
When shown a photo of the Zenaida Gonzalez who is suing her, Anthony said it wasn't the woman she left Caylee with, according to the countersuit. Anthony is seeking damages of more than $15,000, along with attorney fees and court costs.
