I have had several Internet libel victims contact me about their lawsuits which were dismissed under Anti-SLAPP provisions. Such provisions are very necessary to act as a check and balance against wealthy or well funded plaintiffs who attempt to silence legitimate criticism. But in cases where a genuine victim has a case dismissed due to poor planning, it causes great anguish as well as burdensome legal expenses particularly if the victim has to pay his or her antagonist’s legal bills. Today I added a permanent page where we will publish tips on how to avoid this pitfall.
