ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge says she will rule on a defamation lawsuit filed against Casey Anthony sometime in the next two months.

The judge said during a Friday hearing that she would issue a written ruling.

Zenaida (zen-I-da) Fernandez-Gonzalez claims she was damaged by Anthony telling detectives that a baby sitter by the same name had kidnapped Anthony's 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The detectives were investigating the girl's 2008 disappearance. She was later found dead and Anthony was acquitted of murder in July in the closely watched case.

Fernandez-Gonzalez had never met Anthony. Investigators believe Anthony may have seen the name on an apartment rental application.
