Casey Anthony may have been absolved of charges of murdering her daughter, but the legal fallout over the child's death continues.

A Texas nonprofit that is suing Anthony for misrepresenting herself when she enlisted the organization, Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery, to help her locate her daughter Caylee Anthony. The lawsuit charges that Casey knew Caylee was dead, not missing, all along.

Casey Anthony made ongoing misrepresentations to TES and its founder, Tim Miller, and failed to correct materially false information provided to Mr. Miller, in order to convince TES, its staff and volunteers to engage in extensive, costly and time-consuming searches for Caylee, the lawsuit reads.

TES only learned as a result of the criminal trial of Casey Anthony in connection with the disappearance and death of her daughter, Caylee, that it based its decision to conduct the massive searches for Caylee, on Casey Anthony's lies, omissions and deception, it adds.

The complaint seeks $15,000 in lost fees and a jury trial.
