Casey Anthony talks with her attorneys before the start of her July 7, 2011, sentencing hearing at the Orange County Courthouse in Orlando.

TAMPA — A bankruptcy judge has ruled that Casey Anthony won't have to pay most of her debts, discharging what she owes except for the bills related to student loans or criminal fines, if she has them.

Judge K. Rodney May signed the order Tuesday for Anthony, who filed for bankruptcy, claiming about $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. Court papers list her as unemployed, with no recent income. Most of her liabilities are legal bills.

Anthony was acquitted of murder in 2011 in the death her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

In November, the federal bankruptcy judge approved a settlement between Anthony and a Texas search group that helped look for Caylee, whose remains were found in December 2008, about six months after she had gone missing in Orlando.

Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery will be allowed an unsecured claim of $75,000. But it's unclear if it will see any of the money.
