Lawyer: Casey Anthony to be questioned under oath

ORLANDO, Fla. - Casey Anthony will be forced to answer questions, under oath, about the 2008 disappearance of her daughter Caylee. That word from an attorney for a woman suing Anthony for defamation.

Matt Morgan said Thursday that the deposition is set for October.

Anthony's attorney Charles Greene was out of state and didn't immediately return a phone call.

Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez claims she was defamed by Anthony, who told detectives that a baby sitter named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez had kidnapped her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The detectives were investigating the girl's 2008 disappearance.

Morgan says this will be the first time Anthony will not have the option of pleading the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering.

Anthony was acquitted in 2011 of murdering her daughter.

Anthony's attorney has said that details Anthony offered about the accused baby sitter did not match Fernandez-Gonzalez and clearly showed Anthony wasn't talking about her.
