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 but the AP has now WITHDRAWN the story ...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.

Bogus ... no complaint has been filed. AP withdrew the story. 'Complainant' was no lawyer and has no standing at the FL bar. More amateur 'lawyering' in the 'court' of public opinion.

I love this man.

All the protestors and those outraged who did not know Casey Anthony personally ARE idiots.

Were they sequestered for 6 weeks, forced to listen to witnesses, look at evidence, transcripts, and eat and sleep nothing but the trial (jurors get evidence directly from the defense and prosecutors)?

No, they watched short clips by Nancy Grace. LOL

My lawyer friend once told me that the test for reasonable doubt is so very high because the court would rather let 1000 guilty men go than sentence 1 innocent man. It's hard to argue with.

Cheney? Didn't another sleaze bag, named Cheney, while on the floor of the senate tell some other sleaze bag, I think its name was Patrick Leahy, to go f*** itself. Listen to Cheney use the word civil as if he knows what civil is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYY1oDDYS18

That is just immature and rude. Yes, he may have "won" for his team, but to act like this just shows that he is very unprofessional and angry. He acted like a jerk throughout this trial as well so for him to get on his little "soapbox" afterwards and spout off about the rudeness of the media and whatnot when he is acting the same is just hypocritical. whatever dude. See how well your career ends after this. Afterall, did anyone hear about OJ's lawyers afterwards? Not til they died.

Disrespectful, what are you trying to say, "ha ha, got away with murder"? Should be ashamed, after all, a girl was murdered and no one on the defense or her MOTHER is wondering who did it. I guess they know the answer. People always fail to cover this part up, when they know the person is dead they never even pretend to worry about them, or call them when they supposedly go missing and in this case at least call her parents or the police the first minute Caylee was missing.
