Casey Anthony's attorney Jose Baez, who had successfully defended her against charges of the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, is being investigated by the Florida bar.
A bar spokeswoman told the Orlando Sentinel that no other information about the investigation has been made public, and it is also unclear as to who initiated the inquiry, a upi.com report stated.
In the meantime, Casey Anthony's lawyers have appealed to a Florida appeal court to withdraw the orders given by Judge Belvin Perry asking her to return to Orlando in order to serve an year's probation.
Anthony has been out of the public eye since her acquittal of the murder charges of her two-year-old daughter, Caylee, last month.
After her release from the prison, no one had her whereabouts. She was recently spotted in Ohio shopping and trying to blend in with the crowd wearing an Ohio state university baseball cap.
Her acquittal had made many people angry, who had been following the case very closely. Even death threats were made against Anthony.
In January 2010, Judge Stan Strickland had sentenced Anthony to one year probation upon her release, for stealing checks from a friend, but the orders were only verbal, and not written down.
Anthony's lawyers insisted that she has already served the probation while being in jail, waiting for the murder trial. They also argued that disclosing her location could put her in danger.
Anthony's attorneys filed an emergency petition on Wednesday, with Florida's Appeal court to overrule Judge Perry's order. The appellate court also asked to deny Perry further jurisdiction in the case.
