Grewal v. Jammu

Decision of California Court of Appeal, First District - anti-SLAPP law


In the decision of Grewal v. Jammu, Justice Rich, of the First District, provides a lengthy analysis of the evolution of the anti-SLAPP statute; in particular, the unintended consequences of the statute, along with its abuses. He urges the legislature to amend the statute to not allow defendants to appeal adverse rulings. In a time where we have a budget crisis in California, and overburdened courts, Justice Rich's opinion may be very persuasive to legislators. This decision is certain to spark controversy and strong opposition from First Amendment lawyers and other special interest groups.
