Greco v. Greco, 078369

In an action concerning the use of trust and estates money by defendant, trustee and administrator of parents' trust and estates, to fund suits against plaintiff, his sister, the trial court's denial of defendant's special motions to strike under Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16 is affirmed in part and reversed in part where: 1) most of plaintiff's claims allege wrongful taking from the trust and estates, activity not protected under section 425.16; 2) plaintiff's claims for constructive fraud based on defendant's alleged misrepresentations about the underlying litigation are protected activity, but have not been shown to be covered by the present litigation.
