JOSE AWAY as CASEY ANTHONY’s lead defender is officially OUTTA HERE!

Legal ace Jose Baez filed his notice of withdrawal from the legal affairs of Anthony on Tuesday, and his name as “Lead Attorney” is crossed out on the Orange County Clerk of Courts website.

No one else is listed as an attorney for the exonerated murder mom.

Jose Baez is facing two Florida bar complaints stemming from the Anthony case.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, one complaint “involves his failure to share discovery information with the prosecution as the trial loomed.”
