Casey Anthony will go to trial next year

(WFLX)-  Casey Anthony will face another trial,  this time for defamation.

On Thursday, a Florida judge ruled a lawsuit against Anthony can go forward.

Zenaida Gonzalez is suing Anthony for defamation.

Gonzalez claims she was harassed and threatened after Anthony came up with a fictitious nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez-Fernandez, also known as "Zanny the Nanny."

Anthony accused the fictitious nanny of kidnapping her daughter, Caylee.

Last July, a jury acquitted Anthony of all the charges related to her child's death, but convicted her on four counts of lying to law enforcement.
