Case Summary

3011 Spoken in the course of a chance encounter with a political foe at a shopping center, the words"thief" and "liar" are the type of loose, figurative language that nobody takes seriously and therefore qualify as expressions of opinion to which defamation liability does not attach; a party who makes a successful SLAPP motion is entitled to attorney fees incurred, even though its attorney handled the matter pro bono, with the understanding that if fees were awarded, it would reimburse the client for costs expended and retain the remaining balance as compensation.
