In May 2017, the Supreme Judicial Court decided two cases that changed the law for analyzing anti-SLAPP motions under G.L.c. 231, Section 59H. This program will address that change, as well as discuss the history and basic principles for deciding anti-SLAPP motions. Practical examples will be examined.
