In the most recent episode of the Casey Anthony saga, the trustee overseeing Casey Anthony’s bankruptcy case is asking to court for the exclusive rights to her story.
Stephen Meininger asked Judge K. Rodney May for permission to sell the “exclusive worldwide rights” of Anthony’s life story.
Anthony, who is now 26-years-old, and has never told her story about her trial and eventual acquittal of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
In a surprise move, a reported offer of $10,000 has been made to obtain the rights. However, he has no intention of making a movie, or a television mini-series, or even writing a book. The man seeking to purchase the rights is James M. Schober, and as far as anyone can tell, he’s just a random guy with no ties to Anthony or her family.
He claims his purpose is to “prevent Ms. Anthony or others from publishing or profiting from her story in the future.”
Anthony owes her creditors 800 thousand dollars, and the trustee has been asked by the court to find anything of value that might constitute payment for her debts.
There is doubt the judge will agree to the plan. In essence he would be allowing the sale of Anthony’s “thoughts”. And, there is no assurance an unauthorized version will not be forthcoming.
The trustee is into the idea. He suggests creating a bidding war for her story.
This is not the “Amy Fisher Story”. No one wants to hear her creation of what really happened, no one would believe her. To most she is a pariah, a despicable woman who murdered her unwanted child, and got away with it.
Yep, she’s another person on my list who I wish would just disappear.
