The new filing is the latest in a number of requests for information ahead of the civil trial which is due to start in January next year. George and Cindy Anthony's lawyers or lawyers for Anthony haven't commented on the report. There has been much public anger following the establishment of the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation in The foundation was set up to assist the families of missing children, but through the process of the murder trial it seemed to become inactive.

Capturing hearts: Caylee Marie Anthony, 2, daughter of Casey Anthony, went missing in June and was found in woods near her grandparents house six months later.

The disappointing truth about Dr. Phil
Phil McGraw prides himself and his show, Dr. Phil, on at least appearing to help its subjects and audiences. However, according to some — including some of his former employees and guests — McGraw actually does more harm than good. Phil McGraw and his TV series. In Decemberseveral former guests who appeared on Dr. Phil to get help for drug and alcohol abuse accused McGraw and his staff of providing them with the very substances with which they struggled. Todd Herzog, who appeared on the show several times, told STAT and The Boston Globe that when he was a guest inhe was so drunk that he had to be lifted onto the stage in a chair. He claims he found a bottle of vodka in his dressing room, and that a show staffer gave him a Xanax to help him relax. Two other guests who previously appeared on the show for help treating their respective heroin addictions claimed staff provided them with drugs, though in one instance, it was to prevent a potentially lethal withdrawal. But if they are at risk when they arrive, then they were at risk before they arrived. The only change is they are one step closer to getting help, typically help they could not have even come close to affording. A former Dr. Phil Show were summoned into a single room, where security officers were also present. Phil entered the room and demanded that the doors to the room be locked, forcing all of his employees present, to be enclosed in a room with no way out… Dr. Phil yelled at the employees present at the meeting…alleging that one of them had leaked internal information to the press. Phil was yelling at Ms. Rothman and her colleagues, slamming items down and threatened [sic] whoever leaked the story. Rothman claimed that she went to human resources after the incident but received no assistance, forcing her to leave the show and her job behind. Phil went for the jugular, talking about some of my recent mistakes, with no build up. Despite the walk-off, Dr. Phil stated that the show would keep the door open for Brendon, and he returned for a tearful appearance in late November Phil and gave an interview that went so poorly that it went viral for all the wrong reasons. Phil asked me but they cut that out. Michael may have a point. Following the trial, Casey remained a hated figure in America.
Recently, my oh-so astute wife came to me with another legal question. Actually, it was more of a demand for an answer. She was in the waiting lobby of some establishment, and the television was tuned to Dr. My wife explained to me that from the small sample size she saw, it seemed that Dr. I handle lots of sexual abuse cases involving both adults and children. My wife is all too aware of this, so she had plenty of questions as to how and why an allegation of this magnitude could end up on a daytime talk show. I reminded her that criminal allegations normally involve three classes of characters: the participants, the advocates, and the judges. The family must have asked Dr. Phil to fill one of those roles. I promised to give the episode a watch and see where Dr. Phil fell in the pecking order. To my surprise, he did an admirable job of maneuvering through all three categories. That includes the accused, the accuser, those who may have had firsthand contact regarding the accusations, law enforcement, and potentially medical professionals depending on the type of crime. Without any prior knowledge, I was interested to see whether Dr. Phil would be acting as a medical professional for diagnostic purposes, and whether he would refrain from involving himself in the background. Phil did an admirable job of working both angles. He metaphorically put himself in the shoes of the mother by looking into her headspace as a parent of a potentially abused child. He pleaded with the grandmother to look at the facts objectively from a mature and responsible position. He also sympathized with a father simply trying to get visitation with his daughter. According to the father, the relationship with the mother became extremely contentious when he filed for custody of the daughter relatively close in time to allegations coming to light. Furthermore, Dr. Phil looked into the thought process of the pediatrician and law enforcement officers involved. He noted that the mother waited seven days to go to the pediatrician after the disclosure was made by the child. The pediatrician did not report the alleged abuse: An examination of the child did not substantiate the claims.
