"Anti-SLAPP Litigation," The Rutter Group Civil Litigation Series
The lawyers of Davis Wright Tremaine have a wealth of experience successfully litigating under anti-SLAPP laws in states around the country. We have helped craft legislation, and obtained precedent-setting rulings over the past two decades.
One of the firm's most experienced anti-SLAPP lawyers, Thomas R. Burke, has written the first practical, comprehensive guide to anti-SLAPP litigation, focusing on California’s anti-SLAPP statute, one of the first anti-SLAPP statutes enacted and the most frequently used. Published by The Rutter Group, this deskbook fully details how the anti-SLAPP statute works--particularly how defendants may invoke the law to strike any civil cause of action that arises from petitioning or free speech activity--and when and how plaintiffs may overcome an anti-SLAPP motion to strike. The book compiles, organizes, and analyzes the hundreds of state and federal appellate decisions that have interpreted California's anti-SLAPP law, and provides extensive practice tips and forms.
