Tampa, Florida -- Zenaida Gonzalez's attorneys want to question Casey Anthony about her finances. 

They've filed a motion related to Anthony's Chapter 7 bankruptcy which is playing out in Tampa Federal Court.

Before that bankruptcy filing, Gonzalez sued Anthony for defamation in Orange County where they both lived. 

During Anthony's criminal trial in connection with her daughter's death, she claimed Caylee had been kidnapped by someone with the same name as Gonzalez and referred to her as "Zanny the nanny."  That claim turned out to be false.

Anthony attended a creditors meeting March 4.  Gonzalez's attorneys claim they did not get the answers they need from that hearing.

The motion states in part:

"The Debtor admitted to receiving funds for living expenses from her attorneys who, purportedly, received the funds from donors and well-wishers.  However, Debtor was unable to identify any details with respect to how much, and from which attorney, funds were transferred.

"The Debtor also testified to receiving unspecified financial support from 'friends' but, upon improper instruction from purported counsel, Mr. Greene, refused to answer questions as to the identity of such friends.

"The Debtor further admitted that certain additional assets were not disclosed on her bankruptcy schedules and stated she would be amending such. However, to date, the Debtor has not filed amended schedules in this regard."

The judge now has the option of approving the motion or setting a hearing date.
