About the Program:

In less than six months this year, the California Supreme Court unanimously decided five Anti-SLAPP cases. And it still had time to hand down significant decisions on local police powers, third party beneficiaries in contracts, pleading class actions, waiving governmental immunity, tax authority of charter cities, and economic loss damages. We will discuss each of these cases and what the justices were so eager to instruct us about Anti-SLAPP.
