Anti-SLAPP Victory for Book Authors and Publisher (2015)

January 26, 2015

In Rhoads v. Margolis, 2015 WL 311932 (Cal. Ct. App. 2015), LP&S obtained an affirmance and reversal in part eliminating all tort claims against the publication of a biographical book about famous guitarist Randy Rhoads.  The trial court had found that the book was not slappable by some of the defendants, but that ruling was unanimously reversed by the California Court of Appeal.
