Christian Research Inst. v. Alnor, G036587

In case alleging plaintiff was defamed by defendant's statement that plaintiff was under a federal ciminal investigation for mail fraud, denial of defendant's special motion to strike brought under the anti-SLAPP statute is reversed as plaintiffs failed to demonstrate a probability of prevailing by clear and convincing evidence that defendant made the challenged statement with "actual malice."
