(CBS) TAMPA, Fla. - Casey Anthony has agreed to pay $25,000 to settle a dispute in her bankruptcy case over rights to sell her life story, according to recently released documents obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
Anthony filed for bankruptcy protection in January and a few months later, trustee Stephen L. Meininger filed a motion seeking permission to sell Anthony's life story.
According to the paper, Meininger argued Anthony's story is property and an asset that could be sold to pay off the roughly $792,000 she owes to several dozen creditors.
Bankruptcy attorneys for Anthony argued against Meininger's motion, saying selling her story could have "dangerous repercussions far beyond the scope of this case."
Meininger reportedly withdrew his motion in May and in another joint filing made last Wednesday, both Anthony's attorneys and Meininger made an attempt to compromise.
According to the paper, in the filing, both parties agree that selling the debtor's life story is "novel and has not been addressed by any case law that the parties have been able to discover."
Therefore, the parties reportedly agree that a $25,000 settlement is in the best interest of the case.
The bankruptcy judge had not issued an order on the joint request and it is unclear how Anthony, who was acquitted of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in July 2011, plans to obtain the $25,000.
