casey anthony bankruptcy Casey Anthony comes out of hiding for bankruptcy hearing

For the first time since she was acquitted in July 2011, Casey Anthony is being forced to make a public appearance. She has been called to a Tampa, Fla. federal courthouse to respond to questions about her Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.

People started gathering outside Sam M. Gibbons courthouse prior to her scheduled appearance in an attempt to catch a glimpse of Anthony. It is being reported that Anthony could be asked about her financial status, who is supporting her and whether she plans to tell her side of the story about the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Though this is her first public appearance in a year and a half, Anthony was spotted at a Florida steakhouse back in December. It was the first time Anthony had been photographed in nearly a year.
