Casey Anthony Lawyers

Champagne Celebration!

7/6/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's defense team was SO fired up about the HUGE not guilty verdict in the child murder case yesterday ... they rolled across the street and started POPPIN' BUBBLY!!!

0706_jose_celebration_EXP3
TMZ has obtained photos showing attorney Jose Baez and his team having a champagne toast at the Terrace 390 restaurant ... located right across the street from the Orange County Courthouse in Florida.

Our friend Jane Velez-Mitchell was outside the restaurant doing the play-by-play for HLN during the celebration.

Of course, yesterday was a big day for Baez ... and Anthony ... who was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter back in 2008.

Minutes before the toast, Baez gave a news conference and told reporters, "There are no winners in this case. Caylee has passed on far, far too soon. Two-year-old Caylee's death should not be lost in her mother's requital."

So, after making that statement ... still think it was OK for Baez to raise a glass in triumph?

If it weren't concerning a child, I don't think it would be in bad taste. But there's a little angel that will never get the chance to grow up. Just because this was a "victory" for them, it isn't a victory that a precious life was snuffed out before it could be lived. This case shocked the country, and they knew that their actions would be seen. Because of that, it is definitely a disgusting thing to do.

I think they have worked on this case for 3 years and deserve a little toast as a task was completed! It was a victory for them!

Disgusting

I think they are just following the path of bad taste they have shown throughout the whole trial. They are being consistent. I cannot get over the fact that the American Justice system has done this AGAIN. OJ, Lindsay it is the laughing stock.

Very bad taste. They don't really care about Caylee Anthony, it was all about winning. :/

Bad taste in doing this publicly. They did win -and are entitled to celebrate - but should have been back at the office - behind closed doors. Such a highly controversial verdict -this is just inciting the whackos like Nancy Grace and her ilk.

I agree with Crystal and Maggie, They did there job and have a right to celebrate. Is it in bad taste doing it in public? Yeah I think so but I see lots of people doing things considered bad taste.

I wish the trial would have addressed why Caylee was found with duct tape on her mouth, if she drowned as Casey now claims. That's the part that has me shaking my head...

Its tacky to celebrate in public like that- Just poor taste and judgement. He should celebrate, because next to his client he is the luckiest SOB on the face of the earth. Just do it behind closed doors.

She did it. Everyone knows it. Let see what a bella vita she has from here on out.

I think casey anthony was quilty and should have been punished, but, I did enjoy watching nancy grace and the HLN witch hunters have a complete melt down on the air. If you heard nancy grace this morning, she was visibly depressed over the twitter and email she got condeming her for 3 years of bashing. I gotta admit, it was funny to watch.

Why Not? It was a big win, and they deserve a celebration. The place is probably a lawyer hang out anyway. The ones who should be drinking in their offices behind closed doors are the prosecution.

I live in Pinellas County, in area where she was housed, while picking jury. The place was surrounded by every type of law enforecement in county. Every corner, plaza, etc, cops. We are happy this is over, she will, at her OWN hands, reach a fast downward spiral. The, $$$, goes fast, she has no role models, or, blind to it. Het, ****head, go fast, make it painful, soon, bye.........
