Anthony Paying $25,000 To Avoid Writing Life Story

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Casey Anthony has agreed to pay $25,000 to her bankruptcy estate to avoid having to write her life story.

A judge in her bankruptcy case approved the agreement between Anthony and her bankruptcy trustee in papers made public Wednesday.

The trustee had considered the possibility of selling Anthony’s life story to help pay off her debts to creditors.

Anthony had opposed the idea.

Anthony was acquitted two years ago of murder, manslaughter and child abuse charges in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Papers filed in bankruptcy court say the compromise was reached to avoid protracted litigation over whether the trustee could legally force Anthony to write her memoirs.
