ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Casey Anthony has reached a settlement in her bankruptcy case with a Texas search group that helped look for her missing 2-year-old daughter.

Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery will be allowed to have an unsecured claim of $75,000 in Anthony's bankruptcy case under the terms of the settlement filed late last week in federal bankruptcy court in Tampa.

The search group won't be entitled to any other claims and won't be allowed any further dealings in the case.

The group had objected to the bankruptcy, claiming it spent more than $100,000 searching for the girl in 2008. Attorneys for the group said Anthony knew her daughter was already dead.

Anthony was acquitted of murder in the death. She filed for bankruptcy in January.


Associated Press Release

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A Texas search and rescue organization involved in the search for 2-year-old Caylee Anthony says her mother Casey owes it more than $100,000 in expenses.

Attorneys for Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery say in recent federal bankruptcy court documents that Casey Anthony knew her daughter was already dead when the search began in 2008. Anthony was acquitted of murder in her daughter's death but her attorney said the girl drowned accidentally in a family swimming pool.

Anthony filed for bankruptcy in January, claiming just $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. She said she is unemployed.

Equusearch says Anthony should not be discharged from the $100,000 debt.

Anthony is awaiting a ruling on whether she can sell rights to her story to repay some debts.
