ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Casey Anthony is objecting to a proposal that she sell her life story as part of her bankruptcy proceedings.

 

      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 a regular income.

 

      Her attorneys say in their motion that such a proposal 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.
