People ex rel. Fire Ins. Exch. v. Anapol, B233521

In a qui tam action brought by insurance companies against two attorneys and others, alleging a massive fraud ring in the submission claims arising from several Southern California wildfires, the trial court's denial of attorneys' motions to strike the complaint under Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16 (anti-SLAPP motions), is affirmed where bald assertions that the claims were submitted with the subjective intent that litigation would follow are insufficient, without more, to constitute prima facie evidence that the insurance claims constituted prelitigation conduct.
