BEACH v. HARCO NAT'L INS. CO., C039243

Arbitration in an uninsured motorist proceeding did not involve petitioning within the meaning of the anti-SLAPP statute, and permitting anti-SLAPP motions in this context would "completely emasculate" Insurance Code section 790.03(h), which outlines unfair claims settlement practices.
