Petition for review after the Court of Appeal reversed an order granting a special motion to strike in a civil action. The court limited review to the following issues: (1) Did plaintiffs’ causes of action alleging the breach of and interference with an exclusive agency agreement to negotiate the designation and development of a National Football League (NFL) stadium and related claims arise out of a public issue or an issue of public interest within the meaning of Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16? (2) Did plaintiffs’ causes of action arise out of communications made in connection with an issue under consideration by a legislative body?

Review granted: 9/21/16 | Oral argument: 11/07/2018
