Casey Anthony, 32, acquitted in 2011 for the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee, is delighted the defamation case from meter reader Roy Kronk was thrown out on Thursday
Roy Kronk (pictured) unsuccessfully claimed Anthony had instructed her lawyers to defame him in her murder case, having them suggest he was involved in Caylee's death.
Casey Anthony, acquitted for the murder of her young daughter, is celebrating after an eight-year-long defamation suit against her was dropped.
Meter reader Roy Kronk, who found her daughter Caylee's body in 2008, sued Anthony when her lawyers suggested during her 2011 murder trial Kronk was involved in the two-year-old's death and had hidden her remains.
The 24-page ruling on Thursday by the United States Bankruptcy Court in Tampa, Florida ends the final legal problem Anthony faced following her acquittal.
In dismissing Kronk's case, Judge Roberta Colton said there was not enough proof to show Anthony purposefully defamed Kronk.
Judge Colton said she felt Anthony had little influence over her lawyers and what they said about Kronk.
Anthony (pictured with daughter Caylee) is now free to do deals with television and book publishers. She told DailyMail.com, 'I will one day need to get my side out'
She could also find no indication Anthony had told them to defame the meter reader.
Kronk's lawyers have appealed the court's decision.
Critics are concerned Anthony, 32, will now be able to make deals with TV production companies and book publishers without fear of losing any future earnings to Kronk.

'My faith in God saw me through. I never doubted for one moment that it would be dismissed. But..he is appealing..God is great!
"This is what Cays would have wanted..not this witch-hunt that has followed me since my acquittal. Now maybe others will move on. If not, then they are making it all about them for attention.. not my daughter!
'I have no intentions on capitalizing off of this as of right now. Who knows what the future will hold. I will one day need to get my side
