Casey Anthony: Prosection Files Motion For Determination of Counsel

A Case of Musical Defense Attorney "Chairs" or Pin the Tail on the Death Penalty Qualified Attorney

Casey Anthony's defense will soon reveal a new attorney that will make her team qualified to try a death penalty case.

Casey has been in jail since October and is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty. However, no one on Casey's defense team can legally represent her at trial.

INTERVIEW: Sheaffer On New Casey Attorney
VIDEO REPORT: Casey Lawyer To Be Revealed
DOCUMENT: Motion For Determination Of Counsel

Prosecutors filed a motion Thursday to determine if Casey Anthony has a qualified defense team (read motion).
Florida law requires a lawyer to have specific qualifications to be the attorney of record in a death penalty case.
Miami attorney Terrance Lenamon was qualified, but he's no longer involved with the case. Casey Anthony's attorney Jose Baez's spokeswoman said they have a replacement, who is a prominent lawyer, but the she wouldn't reveal the mystery man's identity.
WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said, most likely, the new lawyer is not local.
"It seems that the defense loves drama and this is just another example of the drama that this defense seems to play out," Sheaffer said. "The defense appears to be very unstable."
Baez's publicist said they're trying to protect the new attorney's identity because they don't want him to be attacked by the media.
"It's not a staged production. Again, let's not lose sight of what all of this is about, which is defending Casey Anthony on the charges of murder," Sheaffer said.
Casey's new lawyer will attend her next court hearing on May 28, which is the same hearing where the defense will try to keep the public from seeing Casey Anthony's taped reaction when she found out Caylee's remains had been identified.
Casey's trial is not expected to start until at least October.
