A Florida bankruptcy judge signed a discharge order in Casey Anthony's chapter 7 bankruptcy case on Dec. 17, 2013, discharging all or most of her $800,000 in debts.

In November 2013, there was a bankruptcy court settlement between Anthony and Texas search group Equusearch. Equusearch had helped look for Anthony's 2-year old daughter Caylee, whose remains were found in December 2008, about six months after she had gone missing in Orlando.

Casey Anthony waited a month to report the toddler missing and was arrested in October 2008. The nationally televised trial lasted for six weeks and ended in her acquittal on the murder charge, but she was convicted on charges of lying to law enforcement.

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. It's not clear if they will actually collect any of that money.
