According to the AP, Casey Anthony has decided to settle the Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery lawsuit in her bankruptcy.  Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery will be allowed to have an unsecured claim in Anthony’s bankruptcy case under the terms of the settlement.  In the settlement, EquuSearch agrees to not object to the bankruptcy and Anthony agrees to allow them to claim $75,000 as a creditor without objection.  The search group won’t be entitled to any other claims and won’t be allowed any further dealings in the case.  The group had objected to the bankruptcy, claiming it spent more than $100,000 searching for Casey Anthony’s daughter when she knew her daughter had already died.  Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death of her daughter in 2011.  She filed for bankruptcy in January of this year.

In a press release, EquuSearch said the decision to settle came “after considerable thought…the time and money that [EquuSearch] must spend to pursue these claims are being taken from other families that really need their help,” said EquuSearch lawyers Wites & Kapetan, P.A. and Meland Russin & Budwick, P.A.

In a hearing set early next month, a federal judge will hear oral arguments on two pending dismissal motions and decide whether the additional complaints filed by Zenaida Gonzalez and Roy Kronk have any merit.
