    I know you know this, but sometimes Anti-SLAPP is itself Anti-Public Participation. I should know.

    You totally need a popehat-shaped spotlight beacon.

    Excellent idea…and seems the Popehat art division staff agrees!

    I was curious about MD's anti-SLAPP law and when I googled it I got your popehat post about the ACORN suit from 2009. In that post, you said that there was only one citing case and it held that AZ law applied.

    I just checked again, and there's now two cases holding that different states' laws applied, one case from NJ using MD code as an example of Anti-SLAPP laws, and a case in federal court that for weird procedural reasons was treated like a summary judgment motion and denied because there were disputed issues of material fact.

    And. . . there was one case taking two pro se litigants to task for, get this, not citing any case law interpreting the statute. Ha!

    I'm in Maine. Pass my email along when they start to raise funds. I can't give much but I will help twist arms. Can you tell us more?
