Everyone in the Orlando media market knows of John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan. He the folksy big-name attorney with the ads touting that he’s “for the people.” His tv spots include his paralyzed brother, his son, his wife [also an attorney] and even Emma, the family German Shepard. He takes on the “big guys” for the everyday person and most likely makes a bundle doing it.
Well, John Morgan is living up to his slogan. He’s going after Casey Anthony by representing Zenaida Gonzalez, who said her life was in shambles after Casey Anthony claimed a woman by the same name kidnapped her daughter. Some news reporters have said that Casey saw her name on the nameplate of her apartment. Anthony claims she made the name up.
At any rate, John Morgan was interviewed after Casey Anthony was acquitted and stated he was going after a large damage settlement due to her potential to make money and filed a motion to force Anthony to answer questions during a videotaped depostion. The deposition is supposed to take place before she gets out of jail or on Tuesday July 19, 2011 in Morgan’s office. He is concerned that she will leave the jurisdiction and go into hiding.
