Melamed v. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, 263095

In a suspended doctor's suit against her hospital employer, its medical staff, and the specific doctors involved in her summary suspension decision, arising out of plaintiff's operation on a 12-year-old patient that caused complications requiring corrective surgery, the trial court's grant of defendants' anti-SLAPP motion is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff's claims arose out of a protected activity, the medical staff's peer review process; and 2) plaintiff could not show a probability of success on the merits.
