ORLANDO, Fla. - Casey Anthony is objecting to a proposal that she sell her life story as part of her bankruptcy.
Her attorneys filed a motion this week in federal bankruptcy court in Tampa asking a judge to reject the proposal.
Last month, her bankruptcy trustee asked the judge for permission to sell the exclusive rights to Anthony's story. Anthony is unemployed and doesn't have regular income.
Her attorneys say a proposal to sell her story would require Anthony to create something that doesn't already exist and violates the purpose of bankruptcy, which is to create a fresh start.
They also say the proposal could bar Anthony from ever discussing her life.
Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, in 2011.
