Candace E. Kallberg Prevails in Anti-SLAPP Motion


Candace E. Kallberg won an anti-SLAPP motion this morning, putting an end to a lawsuit that had attempted to punish the mother of a disabled child for advocating on behalf of her child and other disabled children. The Court agreed that her statements were made “in connection with an issue of public interest,” and thus were protected by the First Amendment, and that the plaintiff could not prevail on his claim that the statements were defamatory. Anti-SLAPP motions can be challenging, and the client, and the disabled persons she advocates for, were extremely satisfied.
