The meter reader who found Caylee Anthony's remains has filed a lawsuit against Casey Anthony, claiming the freshly acquitted defendant defamed him by pointing the guilty finger in his direction.

Roy Kronk alleges in his lawsuit ... Casey's lawyers acted as her agents when they went on a media blitz accusing him of doing in the toddler.  Kronk points to various statements the lawyers made to reporters, including, "Roy Kronk is the Killer," "Roy Kronk is a childsnatcher," and "Roy Kronk is guilty."

Kronk -- who never got a retraction -- now  wants punitive and other damages.
