    Casey Anthony has reached a settlement in her bankruptcy case with a Texas search group that helped look for her missing 2-year-old daughter.

    Texas Equusearch will be allowed to have an unsecured claim of $75,000 in Anthony's bankruptcy case under the terms of the settlement filed late last week in federal bankruptcy court in Tampa.

    The search group won't be entitled to any other claims and won't be able to have any further dealings in her bankruptcy case.

    The Texas-based group had objected to the bankruptcy, claiming it had spent more than $100,000 searching for 2-year-old Caylee in 2008.

    Anthony was acquitted of murdering her daughter in 2011.

    Two other parties have complaints pending in Anthony's bankruptcy case.

    Both Zenaida Gonzalez and Roy Kronk claim they were defamed by Anthony.
