    “CBS News is not offering and will not offer to license any materials from Casey Anthony.”

    ABC News is absolutely not part of it.

      An NBC News spokeswoman said, “We’ve talked with Baez about getting an interview with Casey Anthony, but only under NBC News standards and conditions — no payment, and absolutely no job offers for members of her defense team.”

    He said a friend, east Orange County businessman David Deese, is paying for the trip. Deese made the offer some time back, Lippman said.

    “I investigated him to make sure he’s not some kook. They are comfortable with him and this family,” he said.

      The Department of Labor announced today that Quinco Electrical–a Winter Park-based contractor recently ordered to pay restitution to the federal government after violating the Buy American Act–was also found to have been cheating its electricians out of higher wages by classifying them as “pipe layers.” The company will be required to pay out $68,778 in back wages to the workers.
      The news comes on top of two well-publicized investigations (which the rest of the Orlando press corps originally conflated into one) last month into the employment practices of contractors involved in the construction of the new Veterans Affairs clinic in the Lake Nona area southeast of Orlando.
      Quinco Electrical is one of the contractors working on the site.
      The Florida Division of Insurance Fraud was wrapping up its own probe at the site on Feb. 9 when somebody on the site tipped off Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to the possibility of illegal aliens working on the premises. The ensuing raid was juicy fodder for local TV news, given the thermal imaging reportedly used to locate people who may have been hiding in the walls.
      Neither the Division of Insurance Fraud nor the VA would say which contractors are the subject of the initial investigation, but it seemed fitting that the state’s insurance fraud investigators would be on site, considering that former Quinco procurement manager Sam Mollison had also told us that the company had been cashing in on insurance checks after falsely claiming that materials had been stolen for their warehouse.
      The Department of Labor’s full press release on today’s Quinco bust is attached below.
      ******************************************
      Winter Park, Fla., electrical contractor agrees to pay 14 workers more than $68,700 in back wages following US Labor Department investigation
      Wage and Hour Division finds violations of Davis-Bacon Act, Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act
      WINTER PARK, Fla. – The U.S. Department of Labor has recovered $68,778 in back wages for 14 employees of Quinco Electrical Inc., following an investigation by the department’s Wage and Hour Division that found the company violated provisions of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act.
      Quinco Electrical Inc. is a Winter Park-based commercial electrical contractor with offices in Irving, Texas, Raleigh, N.C., and Douglasville, Ga., that employs more than 500 employees.
      “Workers employed on federally-funded projects deserve their full pay as required under federal law,” said Will Garnitz, director of the Wage and Hour Division’s South Florida District Office. “This action underscores the Labor Department’s commitment to ensure proper prevailing wages and benefits are paid to the many men and women working on federal contracts.”
      The Davis-Bacon Act requires all contractors and subcontractors performing work on federal and certain federally-funded projects to pay their laborers and mechanics the proper prevailing wage rates and fringe benefits as determined by the secretary of labor.
      Investigators found that the company failed to maintain an allowable ratio of apprentices to journeymen electrical workers on the jobsite and improperly classified electricians as pipe layers, resulting in those workers receiving less than the required Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rates. Employees who were misclassified are receiving $68,541 in back wages.
      In addition, the investigation revealed that the company had violated provisions of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act when it made overtime premium payments to employees who were misclassified under Davis-Bacon. As a result, five employees who had been misclassified are receiving a total of $237 in premium pay for the overtime hours they worked because the company had calculated their overtime pay using a rate that was lower than the rate required under Davis-Bacon.
      The Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act applies to contractors and subcontractors with federal service contracts and federally-funded and assisted construction contracts exceeding $100,000. Covered contracts include those entered into by the U.S., any agency or instrumentality of the U.S., any territory of the U.S. or the District of Columbia.
      For more information on the Davis-Bacon Act, Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act, and other federal laws, contact the Wage and Hour Division’s South Florida District Office at 305-596-9874 or call the division’s toll-free helpline at 866-4US-WAGE (487-9243).

      It seems Mark Littman isn’t much of an investagative
      attorney. It appears this David Deese rips off his employees
      to support his private jet and trips to the Bahamas. But,
      the Scanthonys feel comfortable with him.

      Kim, what happened to Bozo’s high powered meeting with
      the execs of the Big 3? Was’nt there a bidding war that could
      reach into the millions? Also what happened to the ‘client’
      who knew where C was? I guess Bozo is left with Barfaldo.
      I think Bozo blew any chance to ease public outrage when
      they threw that big party after the verdict. And then he goes
      and appeals the four lesser convictions on the tax payers dime.

      I’d make sure the land will be approved for this memorial before sending any donation. I’m not keen on this idea because its where Caylee was dumped like trash. That just bothers me…plus, its by a school where little ones pass it by…

      I remember Marc Klaas having to fight against a memorial where Polly was dumped. He didn’t want his daughter remembered there in that way.

        I agree with that but it seems places of death attract people. I really don’t know why.

        Here in TX you will see permanent markers on places by highways and roads where people died

        creepy and not the way I would want to be remembered

    Kim, it’s the same here in Indiana, You see permanent Markers by Highways and Roads where People died or were abducted. and People put Flowers there.
    About the Tuck of War who will get Casey’s first Interview, it’s disgusting that’s all I have to say.
    I for One am not interested what Casey A. has to say or for that matter the Rest of the Anthony’s. We already have heard it All! Huge Waste of our time to listen to their BS. JMO

    From Cayleesfund website:

    Although a jury found her not guilty of murder earlier this month, the contradicting stories may cost her financially.

      On Thursday, Anthony’s civil attorney, Charles Greene, filed notice that he was voluntarily dismissing a counterclaim Anthony made against Fernandez-Gonzalez in November 2008. Greene’s filing doesn’t say why Anthony wants to dismiss the counterclaim. He declined Friday to discuss any legal strategies he is considering.

      And how would a judge expect a 25-year-old, who is not a lawyer, to understand not only what is unfolding in court, but also to understand the implications it could have on future civil cases?

      Jerry Springer doesn’t want her…a porn producer doesn’t want her…NE doesn’t want her…and I doubt the Big 3 are wanting her since they rely on advertisers-they don’t want their product associated with the Cword…I guess the Cword will soon find out the price for Bella Vita is high on her part.

        Soon cword will face the reality of what she has done by murdering her daughter. Caylee was her meal ticket – stupid cow was to dense to see she had it made. Gram c would have continued indefinitely to pay

    “Now C plans to stay in hiding for three months while she undergoes therapy and rehabilitates her murderous monster-mom image, insiders add.”
    How can C be indigent when someone is paying for this. I hope she gets caught
    lying on indigent papers. She does not live at home anymore. Someone
    is paying for all his. If the checks Mumbles recieved have her name
    on them they are income.

    I hope the following is accurate it was the best I could find.
    C is allowed a public defender on her first appeal. Any
    appeals after that are on her. Court can throw out appeal
    as frivolous. This appeal is frivolous. Experts say any ethical
    lawyer would not file this appeal on four guilty misdemeanor
    charges. Also, the best I can tell is C can not get a Public
    Defender in Civil cases. I guess the Mason and Baez law firms
    will defend these cases for nothing. I don’t get it.

    Baez NEVER expected cword to get off on murder – he has no real plan and I am guessing he will want to be shed of her quickly once he realizes the spiteful bitch he is now saddled with
