Anti-SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation)
Anti-SLAPP motions can be a powerful tool, and an efficient way to test the strength of a lawsuit that appears to infringe on certain First Amendment rights. We have a broad range of experience in dealing with motions brought under California’s unique Anti-SLAPP statutes. We have eliminated causes of action, and even entire lawsuits, in a single stroke, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings to our clients. A sampling of our anti-SLAPP motions have been against claims for malicious prosecution, breach of contract, quasi-contractual recovery, fraud or deceit, negligent misrepresentation, conspiracy, defamation (libel) and unfair competition.
