Didn't See That Coming...

Charney v. Standard General, LP, No. B268928 (D2d5 Mar. 28, 2017)

Plaintiff sues his former employer for defamation and similar torts statements made in a press release in connection with his termination. Unsurprisingly that draws an anti-SLAPP motion. Plaintiff basically concedes the “arising from test” has been met, which, as I previously explained, is not a good idea. And because Plaintiff can’t show that the release was actually defamatory, he can’t show a likelihood of success.

Affirmed.
