Techdirt Is Fighting A New Lawsuit
from the slapp-suits dept
Techdirt was recently sued in Florida by Larry Klayman for an article that we published concerning the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit suspending his license for 90 days. We strongly believe that this case is entirely without merit, and is a clear attempt to silence opinion and criticism via the court system.
Last week, we asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit under Florida?s anti-SLAPP law, and we hope that the court will agree. Beyond that, while litigation is still ongoing, we’ll have no further comment, other than to note our continued advocacy for the adoption of more state anti-SLAPP laws and a strong federal anti-SLAPP law.
