PrediWave Corp. v. Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, H033422

In plaintiff's suit against defendant-law firm and other attorneys who had previously represented plaintiff-company and its former president and CEO, grant of defendants' motion to strike under the anti-SLAPP statute is reversed as the trial court erred in determining that this was a SLAPP suit subject to a special motion to dismiss as the defendants did not satisfy their threshold burden of demonstrating that the principal thrust of any of the complaint's causes of action was activity protected by the anti-SLAPP statute.
