Anti-SLAPP Motions & Appeals
SLAPP is an acronym that stands for Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation. A SLAPP is a lawsuit that chills the exercise of free speech. In response to a disturbing increase in the number of these types of suits, in 1992, the California legislature enacted Code of Civil Procedure 425.16 (the anti-SLAPP statute) to create a procedural mechanism (anti-SLAPP Motion) by which courts could dispose of such meritless lawsuits at an early stage of litigation. Since the anti-SLAPP statute was enacted, there have been over 350 California Appellate and Supreme Court decisions interpreting its provisions. The law on this subject is constantly changing and few attorneys have substantial experience with anti-SLAPP Motions. Because this area of law is complex and is constantly changing, it is a malpractice trap for unwary attorneys. Therefore, it is important to hire an attorney with substantial experience in this area representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Mr. Facchetti has successfully represented both plaintiffs and defendants in the anti-SLAPP context. He has also written extensively on the subject and is contacted daily by potential clients and attorneys alike seeking his advice on this complex and challenging area of law.
Personal Injury Cases
Mr. Facchetti also handles a variety personal injury matters, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, dog attacks, as well as less frequent types of personal injury cases like wrongful death and products liability matters. He also handles civil rights matters, e.g., police brutality.
