Nesson v. Northern Inyo County Local Hospital District, E053414

In an action by a radiologist against a hospital for suspending his medical privileges, the trial court's grant of the hospital's anti-SLAPP motion to strike is affirmed, where: 1) the trial court properly found that all causes of action arose from alleged actions and conduct by the hospital during medical peer review that qualify as official proceedings under the anti-SLAPP statute; 2) all causes of action were barred due to the plaintiff's failure to exhaust his administrative and judicial remedies before filing suit; and 3) even if the plaintiff had exhausted his remedies, he failed to meet his burden to establish a probability he would prevail on any of his claims.
