Baughn v. Dep't of Forestry, 072462

In a government employment suit appeal from the denial of an anti-SLAPP motion under Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16, and an award of attorney fees to the successful plaintiff, the trial court's judgment is: 1) affirmed as to denial of the motion where defendant failed to demonstrate plaintiffs' action arose from conduct taken by defendant in furtherance of its right of speech in connection with a public issue or an issue of public interest; and 2) reversed as to the award of attorney fees, where the trial court relied on an improper basis for awarding fees to plaintiff.
