SCOTT v. METABOLIFE INT'L, INC., C041029
Defendant's special motion to strike plaintiff's complaint, pursuant to the California anti-SLAPP statute, was properly denied. Plaintiff's injury claim arises from defendant's act of manufacturing and selling an allegedly defective product, and defendant's for-profit advertising does not concern an issue of public interest.
