California Appellate Court Upholds Lower Court Denial Of Anti-SLAPP Motion In Website Lawsuit

A California state appellate court has affirmed a trial court's denial of defendants' anti-SLAPP motion on the grounds that the defendants' speech did not arise in the context of a public issue. The plaintiff, an aspiriing entertainer, maintained a website; the defendants posted derogatory comments about the plaintiff and statements that the plaintiff found threatening including "Faggot, I'm going to kill you," and "[You need] a quick and painless death." The case is D.C. v. R.R., (2010) , Cal.App.4th, decided March 15, 2010.
