ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A judge in Orange County, Fla., said he would not dismiss a lawsuit against Casey Anthony, whose young daughter Caylee was killed last year.

The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel said Tuesday that Anthony, 23, is being sued by Zenaida Gonzalez of Kissimmee, Fla., who alleges Anthony damaged her reputation by naming her as a suspect in the 2-year-old's disappearance in July 2008.

Anthony reportedly told investigators she left her daughter with a babysitter named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez the day of her disappearance.

The body of Caylee was found in December in Orange County, Fla., leading to first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse charges against her mother.

Anthony's attorneys sought a dismissal of the civil case against their client, but Orange County Circuit Judge Jose R. Rodriguez rejected that proposal Monday.

The Sentinel said Gonzalez is seeking more than $15,000 in damages in her lawsuit.
