ORLANDO, Fla., April 5 (UPI) -- Casey Anthony's bankruptcy lawyers opposed a trustee's request to sell her life story to repay her creditors, Orlando, Fla., court documents say.

Bankruptcy trustee Stephen Meininger, arguing Anthony's story is property like any asset with value that could be sold to pay her creditors, filed a motion last month asking U.S. Bankruptcy Judge K. Rodney May for consent to sell "the exclusive worldwide rights in perpetuity to the commercialization of Anthony's life story."

Her lawyers filed paperwork Thursday opposing the plan, calling it "a terrifying Orwellian prospect" and an "unprecedented invasion," adding her story "exists solely within [Anthony's mind]."

A hearing on the motion is scheduled for next week, the Orlando Sentinel reported Friday.

Anthony says she is unemployed and living off the charity of friends and lawyers since her 2011 acquittal in her daughter Caylee's death.

She filed for bankruptcy in January, listing debts of $792,000. Her largest creditor is her lawyer, Jose Baez, to whom she owes $500,000, court documents said.
