Anthony won't have to return to Florida on Thurs

ORLANDO, Fla. - August 3, 2011

An assistant in Judge Belvin Perry's office said Wednesday a hearing on the issue has been set for Friday. The assistant spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the case.

Anthony has been out of public view since she was acquitted by a jury in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. She was convicted of lying to detectives but released from jail because of time served.

Her attorney, Jose Baez, says bringing Anthony back to Orlando would only add to what he called the "circus-like atmosphere" around her case. It was not immediately clear whether she would have to attend Friday's hearing.
