STROOCK & STROOCK & LAVAN LLP v. TENDLER, B147408
While the anti-SLAPP statute applies to a malicious prosecution action, a law firm demonstrated a probability it would prevail on the merits, because defendant had no probable cause to file a malpractice suit, thus a motion to strike the complaint was erroneously granted.
