PPP Board Vice President Jeremy Rosen recently co-authored an article on California's anti-SLAPP law for California Lawyer. The article provides an overview of California's anti-SLAPP law and discusses the evolution of the state’s anti-SLAPP jurisprudence.
Board Member Jeremy Rosen co-authored an article on Law360 about California's anti-SLAPP law and legal malpractice. They write:
California’s anti-SLAPP law provides “an efficient procedural mechanism to obtain an early and inexpensive dismissal of nonmeritorious claims ‘arising from any act’ of a defendant ‘in furtherance of the person’s right of petition or free speech under the United States or California Constitution in connection with a public issue.’” (Brenton v. Metabolife International Inc. (2004) 116 Cal.App.4th 679, 684.) But this law “is a complex statute” that has “spawned a ‘plethora of appellate litigation.’” (Burke, Anti-SLAPP Litigation (The Rutter Group 2016) § 2.1, p. 2-5.)
Among the issues that have generated the most litigation is whether the anti-SLAPP statute applies to claims alleging legal malpractice or similar breaches of an attorney’s legal or ethical obligations.
PPP Board Member Jeremy Rosen recently authored an Op-Ed for the Hill advocating for enactment of the Speak Free Act.
"The SPEAK FREE Act provides a mechanism for federal courts to promptly dismiss those baseless lawsuits that are designed to punish people for speaking out."
