In this lawyer advertising case, attorney Pierce Gore published a two-sentence advertisement, warning wood deck owners about galvanized screws manufactured by three companies. The lawyer argues that he is protected by the commercial speech exemption to the state anti-SLAPP law. His reply brief requests that the California Supreme Court, which heard arguments in the case on April 7, 2010, NOT to exempt from the protection of the anti-SLAPP statute all statements or conduct that occur in the "course of delivering" a good or service.
