MOTION TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL
COMES NOW ANDREA D. LYON, and respectfully asks this Court for leave to
withdraw as counsel for Casey Marie Anthony.
In support of this Motion Ms. Lyon states as follows upon information and belief;
L In June of2009 the undersigned was admitted pro hctc vice as death-qualified
counsel on behalf of Casey Anthony after the State had reversed its position and
decided to seek the death penalty.
2,	On March 18, 2010, Miss Anthony presented her Motion to Declare Indigency for
Costs. At that hearing, the undersigned indicated that she was and had been
appearing on a pro bono basis, but that the fbnds she had received for costs were
not even a third of what it had cost for the first ten months of representation.
3,	Judge Strickland granted that motion, declaring Miss Anthony indigent for coats
and indicating that Miss Anthony and her team must abide by the Justice
Administration Commission (IAC) Rules.

4.	On May 12,2010 this Court entered an order nunc pro tunc to May 6, 2010
granting certain funding requests and denying others. Among the requests that
were denied, travel expenses for defense counsel were denied. It is the
undersigned's understanding the JAC does prohibits payments of such costs.]
5.	_ Undersigned counsel cannot continue to represent Miss Anthony m the absence of
quite substantial funds to cover the costs, which she anticipates will increase as
trial approaches.
6.	Undersigned counsel has worked many hundreds of hours on this case, believes in
her client and her client's cause, and does not wish personally or professionally to
withdraw from this case. Nonetheless, for the reasons staled above, she has no
choice,
7. Undersigned counsel will of course cooperate fully with the excellent team with
which she has had the honor to associate with thus far,
Respectfully submitted,
■zUjUu.
