- posted: Feb. 28, 2021
Garcia Hong Law successfully recovered attorneys’ fees and costs for its client following a judgment granting an anti-SLAPP motion under Code of Civil Procedure § 425.16 on February 26, 2021. The Superior Court of California – County of San Diego held that Garcia Hong Law’s client was the prevailing party and entitled to her attorneys’ fees and costs. The Court did not reduce or discount any of the client’s fees and costs that were incurred for Garcia Hong Law attorney Valerie Garcia Hong’s legal services. The Court found Ms. Hong’s fees and costs were “reasonably expended, necessary and related to the merits of the motion.”
California’s anti-SLAPP statute can be a powerful tool for litigators if the claims arise out of protected free speech or a right to petition. An anti-SLAPP motion has been successfully used in defamation or malicious prosecution claims.
