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!!!

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!

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 am disgusted at what our country has become. It's more about being on the winning team than it is about justice. They don't give a sh** about that poor child that lost her life. I really don't know how this legal team (or the jurors for that matter) can sleep at night knowing they let a murderer go free.

all about the money    

Good lord...they won a long drawn out case. They have the right to celebrate be it across the street or at Hooters or where ever. Next thing you know TMZ will have a story about how the legal defense team went home and made love to their spouses and ask if it was too soon or tacky.

Yes, a little girl is dead but the jury said her mom didn't do it. The defense lawyers did a great job they should be proud of themselves. So yes, champagne & celebrate. I think mom did it!!

If I worked on a project tirelessly with a team of people for 3 years and we got the end result we wanted, you bet I would celebrate. People who are trying to read more into this than there is are dumbasses.

Baez does an interview, saying "their are no winners in this case" and then walks across the street and celebrates "winning". Just one more reason Lawyers are the s*** of the earth.
