(Newser) Cheney Mason's "eff you" to the media probably felt pretty good at the time, but now the Casey Anthony attorney is facing a Florida Bar complaint for making the obscene gesture. A fellow attorney filed the complaint after pictures emerged of Mason flipping the bird while celebrating Anthony's not guilty verdict, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Mason also reportedly made a different lewd gesture, not pictured, that required two hands. The complaint accuses Mason of breaking the rules that require him to maintain "the integrity of the profession."
