Casey Anthony's Lawyer FLIPS OUT

7/7/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's defense lawyer had one hell of a message for reporters and spectators Tuesday ... in the form of an extended middle finger.

Attorney Cheney Mason -- who worked alongside Jose Baez -- shot the bird to a crowd outside an Orlando restaurant Tuesday while celebrating the not guilty verdict with the rest of his team.

UPDATE: The Associated Press had reported that a complaint was filed against Cheney with the Florida Bar Association over the gesture ... but the AP has now WITHDRAWN the story ... after a Bar spokesperson said the report was false.

Anybody who would defend this murdering pr*ck is an A**h*le! This idiot's conduct (disgraceful for a lawyer) proves it. Jer**ff! There should be severe punishment for this kind of behavior.
And F U 2 Mason, you c**ks**ker!!!

Neither one of the main defense attorneys has an ounce of class in their bodies...from the pronouncement from Baez about being a victory for anti-death penalty people (whatever that weird-a$$ comment was) to his "I can tell my daughter when she asks me 'Daddy, what did you do at work today'...well, honey, I saved a life! (Gawd, vomit-central). What narcissistic dbags...just like their client...perfect fit. They've been nothing but smug jerkoffs since the verdict. I pray karma gets them all in the end, including Casey's mother.

He's basically just giving Caylee the middle finger by doing this. This man is a disgrace.

What a classless southern redneck. But what do we expect from someone who lies for a living KNOWING . . the person you are lying for is guilty as hell!

The media was probably running their mouths. We hear it all the time in TMZ's videos like the one with Andrew Keegan. This attorney said, "No mo'"

Nope, I'm pretty sure it was the crowd outside the restaurant.

So what!

Republicans and various other right wing rubes have been calling our President vile names, making racist posters of him in a multitude of insulting ways and shooting the middle finger at the American political process for years now.

Mason's 'bird' seems quaint and silly in comparison to the cauldron of right wing hatred that is poisoning our nation.

Ain't that the truth! And the sad thing is most these hardasses who want to see him sanctioned, are the very same "fair game" no-holds-barred political extremists who fight dirty when it suits them, and reli*****.

This guy worked on this for 3 years and won his case, he did what he was hired to do. Like it or not he did a good job for his client and that's what any lawyer is suppose to do.
