A brief update about my case.
My attorneys are working on my petition for review to the California Supreme Court. They don’t accept most of these, so the odds are not great. On the other hand, there are constitutional issues involved. If the lower court anti-SLAPP verdict stands as is, I’ll owe the LA Times at least $330,000 in their legal fees, and hundreds of reporters in California will lose important protections against being discriminated against by race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
If the high court accepts my case and rules in my favor, we move on to discovery. We’ll finally get to start preparing for me to get my day in court. We’ll subpoena documents and depose witnesses.
If they do not accept my case or rule against me, it’s over.
I’ll keep you posted.
