MATTEL, INC. v. LUCE, FORWARD, HAMILTON & SCRIPPS, B151826

An action for malicious prosecution, after a trademark infringement action, qualifies for a special motion to strike under Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16, and a probability of prevailing was adequately demonstrated; perfection of the appeal from denial of the special motion to strike automatically stayed trial court proceedings pending outcome of the appeal.
