Very Professional: Casey Anthony Lawyer Flips the Bird

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

The circus that surrounded the Casey Anthony trial did not end with her not guilty verdict. Her defense team is coming under severe criticism for holding a lavish champagne celebration for a job well done.

After the verdict and chastising the media for its coverage, the lawyers and support staff moved to a restaurant in Orlando to congratulate themselves. Terrace 390 has a glass window, so onlookers, including the media, watched the celebration.

At one point, attorney Cheney Mason showed what he thought of the media, giving them the finger (above).

Speaking with her usual hyperbole, HLN's Nancy Grace said, "The defense team is inside a bar having a champagne toast right now. Now you know what? I'm not a preacher and I'm not a rabbi but there's something wrong with that.

"But I know one thing. As the defense sits by and has their champagne toast after that not guilty verdict, somewhere out there, the devil is dancing tonight."

Check out video of the celebration, including an ecstatic, jumping member of the defense team, as well as someone (a restaurant employee?) trying to get the cameraman to stop taping:
