Brodeur v. Atlas Entertainment, Inc., 263379

In a defamation action involving California's anti-SLAPP statute, the trial court's denial of the motion to strike is reversed where defendant's 2013 movie, American Hustle, depicting a character referencing plaintiff's 1977 article on the dangers of microwaves, was protected activity within the meaning of the anti-SLAPP statute and plaintiff failed to show a probability of prevailing on the merits.
