Are litigation activities protected activity within the meaning of the Anti-SLAPP statute?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from Turner v. 640 Main St. Partners, LLC, B249240 (Cal. App. 2014):

It is too well-settled to question here that litigation activities are protected activity within the meaning of the Anti-SLAPP statute. " ' " '[T]he constitutional right to petition . . . includes the basic act of filing litigation . . . .' " ' [Citations.]" (Chavez v. Mendoza (2001) 94 Cal.App.4th 1083, 1087.) Accordingly, we move to the second step of the test.
