#17-98 Newport Harbor Ventures, LLC v. Morris Cerullo World Evangelism, S239777. (G052660; 6 Cal.App.5th 1207; Orange County Superior Court; 30-2013- 00665314.)

#17-98 Newport Harbor Ventures, LLC v. Morris Cerullo World Evangelism, S239777. (G052660; 6 Cal.App.5th 1207; Orange County Superior Court; 30-2013- 00665314.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed an order denying a special motion to strike. This case presents the following issues: (1) May a motion to strike under the anti-SLAPP statute be brought against any claim in an amended complaint, including claims that were asserted in prior complaints? (2) Can inconsistent claims survive an anti-SLAPP motion if evidence is presented to negate one of the claims?

Review granted: 3/22/2017
