ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —

Attorneys for Casey Anthony are trying to get a civil lawsuit against her thrown out on Friday, WFTV learned.

Anthony's attorneys are asking a judge for a summary judgment in a defamation suit filed by Zenaida Gonzalez.

Gonzalez claims Casey ruined her life when she said a babysitter by the same named kidnapped her daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Investigators tracked Gonzalez down, because her name was on a visitor's card at the Sawgrass Apartments where Anthony said she dropped Caylee off with the nanny.

Gonzalez said once that happened, people have treated her differently and she wants at the very least, an apology from Anthony.

Circuit Judge Lisa Munyon could decide on Friday to throw out the defamation lawsuit against Anthony.

WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer believes it's unlikely she'll decide on Friday, but it is possible she will throw out the case.

Gonzalez wants the defense to turn over copies of Anthony's video diary since her acquittal, and they want to know where she is so they can subpoena her for the case.

Anthony's lawyer told WFTV during a recent interview that she may apologize to Gonzalez, but they will still try to convince a judge to throw out the case.

Anthony's lawyer said the nanny Casey named was "Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez," and that's not the plaintiff's name.

They also argue that Anthony has already admitted that the nanny doesn't exist.

Caylee's body was found behind Anthony's parent's home on Suburban Drive.

The lawsuit isn't scheduled to go to trial until next year.
