ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- WFTV has learned how Casey Anthony's lead attorney, Jose Baez, is going to try to defend himself against a civil contempt of court allegation. It seems Baez is blaming other people for his problems.

Baez is blaming the prosecutor for playing games, and blaming Chief Judge Belvin Perry for allowing it. Baez even blamed the judge for not responding to his request.

WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer says the blame game is not going to fly with the judge.

Baez faces possible jail time or fines if the judge finds him in contempt of court for missing yet another court-ordered deadline. Judge Perry ordered Baez to defend himself, but Baez has gone on the attack.

"It's, 'I'm not at fault because, judge, it's your fault and it's the prosecutors' fault together and separately,'" Sheaffer told WFTV (watch raw interview).

Baez was given 13 days at a February 4 hearing to give prosecutors his specific arguments as to why air tests done on Casey Anthony's trunk, showing evidence of human decomposition, are not based on sound, time-tested science. Baez wants the evidence thrown out.

Tuesday, Baez says the specifics prosecutors want, and the judge has ordered, are not legally required and Baez implies the judge is enabling what he calls prosecutors' games to disrupt his work on Casey's defense.

"That's probably the most obnoxious of the allegations, is that somehow Judge Perry has become a puppet of the state," Sheaffer said.

But Baez also claims he was confused by the judge's order and attempted Monday, 11 days late, to provide more specific arguments against scientific evidence he's known about for at least two years.

Baez made what Sheaffer called a veiled threat that this distraction could lead him to ask for a delay of the trial.

Sheaffer says, if Baez believes he can pressure the judge to back down to avoid a possible delay or even an appeal issue, he's mistaken.
