U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida Judge K. Rodney May has accepted an agreement between Trustee Stephen L. Meininger and Casey Anthony concerning the disposition of the rights of her life story involving her 2011 acquittal in the trial for the murder of two-year-old Caylee Anthony, whose remains were discovered in December 2008.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that the 27-year-old Anthony, who filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy last January citing $792k in debt, will pay $25,000 to the bankruptcy estate and put to rest any struggle over whether her story constitutes an asset.  Last March, Meininger asked the Court for "exclusive worldwide rights" to Anthony's story as an asset to satisfy creditors, but withdrew his motion two months later. Anthony's attorneys, according to the Sentinel article, claimed compelling the sale of Anthony's story violated her First Amendment rights and would be invasive of her private thoughts.

Anthony has maintained a low profile since the around-the-clock cable tv coverage of her highly charged trial.
