ORLANDO, FL – Fearful that Nancy Grace and her minions will attack her once she’s released from jail on Sunday (see Tot Mom Walks Free Countdown), Casey Anthony has taken preemptive safety measures, and filed a restraining order against Grace, HLN, and the millions of people who are calling for her head on a platter, asking the court for immediate protection.
The injunction, which was filed Friday morning on behalf of Ms. Anthony by her attorney Jose Baez, stipulates that Ms. Grace, and anyone else who hates her guts, must stay at least 500 ft. away, and refrain from any type of physical and/or verbal contact. The order also specifies that all contact, including mail, the delivery of poisonous flowers, phone, fax, e-mail, or any other type of electronic communication, be prohibited as well. That means, no interviews.
Mr. Baez said he issued the restraining order after it became apparent that Ms. Grace and her viewers were not going to leave his client alone. Not now. Not ever. “The obsessive coverage of this trial, and all the death threats and craziness that have resulted directly from this obsession, has prompted me to take action and seek immediate relief”, Mr. Baez was quoted as saying. “Hopefully, this will prevent anyone who’s thinking of attacking my client, to think twice before doing anything they’ll later regret”, he added.
Mr. Baez has also asked that the order be enforceable across statelines, in case his client decides to move to Hollywood to try and capitalize on her infamy.
Calls for comment to Nancy Grace’s office, HLN, CNN, and FOX News have all been answered with still more continuous and incessant round-the-clock coverage.
