Casey Anthony to give videotaped lawsuit testimony

Casey Anthony will have to give videotaped testimony in the case of a woman who claims Anthony ruined her reputation.

A judge on Thursday set the deposition for early October, and she left open the possibility that the videotape and a transcript of the deposition will be sealed from public release.

Anthony told detectives in 2008 that her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was kidnapped by a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez. Detectives said no such baby sitter existed.

A woman with that name sued Anthony, claiming her reputation was ruined.

Anthony was acquitted of killing Caylee and released from jail in July. She is now serving probation on an unrelated charge at an undisclosed location in Florida.

Her whereabouts have been kept secret because she has received death threats.
