<a >California’s Anti-SLAPP Law Protects Letter to Employer’s Customers About Contemplated Trade Secrets Litigation.</A>
The California Court of Appeal has ruled that an employer’s attorney’s letter to the employer’s customers concerning potential trade secrets litigation was protected speech under California’s anti-SLAPP (“strategic lawsuit against public participation”) law, Cal. Civ. Code Section 425.16. Neville v. Chudacoff, No. B198253 (Cal. Ct. App. Mar. 12, 2008).

Thus, the court affirmed the trial court’s order dismissing the employee’s claim against the employer’s attorney.
