Raining Data Corp. v. Barrenechea, G040902

In an action for misappropriation of trade secrets, trial court orders are affirmed where: 1) the court properly granted plaintiff's anti-SLAPP motion as plaintiff met its burden of demonstrating the acts underlying the cross-complaint arose from protected activity and defendant failed to show a probability of prevailing on the cross-claim; and 2) the trial court did not abuse its discretion in the amount of attorney's fees awarded as the fees incurred were reasonable and not manifestly excessive.
