Genethera, INC., et al. v. Troy & Gould Professional Corporation, et al.

Decision of Court of Appeal, Second District


The Appellants were defendants in an earlier case where the plaintiffs offered to dismiss one of the defendants on certain conditions. The plaintiffs in that case sent a settlement letter to the defendants, which the defendants contended was unethical because it sought to create a conflict of interest so that defendant's attorney, in effect, would not able to represent any of the defendants. The defendants sued the plaintiffs for intentional interference with contractual relations and negligence.

The plaintiffs filed an anti-SLAPP motion and they prevailed because the court held that the litigation privilege applied to the settlement letter.

The decision was appealed and was then affirmed.
