California Court of Appeal
Industrial Waste & Debris Box Service v. Murphy, 142388
In a dispute involving defendant's statements in a report about the activities of plaintiff, a company in the business of hauling solid waste, which questioned the accuracy of statements in plaintiff's public reports about the percentages of the waste materials it collected that were recycled and thereby diverted from landfills, alleging defendants' report was false and defamatory and injured plaintiff's business, the trial court's denial of defendant's anti-SLAPP motion is reversed where the court erred in concluding that plaintiff met its burden to show it has viable claims.
