Texas non-profit told must refile claim against Casey Anthony

TAMPA, Fla., July 2 (UPI) -- A bankruptcy judge in Florida Tuesday dismissed a group's claim against Casey Anthony for more than $100,000 it spent looking for her missing daughter Caylee.

But U.S. Bankruptcy Judge K. Rodney May said the non-profit Texas EquuSearch 21 days to file another claim, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Anthony is trying to avoid paying Texas EquuSearch through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The non-profit contends, however, she should still have to reimburse it for the time it wasted hunting for 2-year-old Caylee in 2008 when Anthony knew she was dead.

David Schrader, Anthony's bankruptcy attorney, counters members of Texas EquuSearch went ahead with their search knowing Anthony had been charged with lying to law enforcement and murder.

Anthony was later acquitted of murder, while being found guilty on four misdemeanor counts of lying to law enforcement. Two counts were reversed on appeal.
