Dible v. Haight-Ashbury Free Clinics, A120493

In an action brought by plaintiff-former employee alleging defamation regarding the termination of her employment, grant of defendants' motion brought pursuant to the Anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) is affirmed where: 1) the trial court was correct as to the claim of defamation made by plaintiff's complaint, to wit, the publication to a third party of statements regarding the termination of her employment; 2) plaintiff's claim that statements made to her were defamatory did not pass demurrer; and 3) since demurrer was timely filed, and further amendment would not be able to cure defects, the failure to address the demurrer was a harmless error.
