Case Summary

4017 A series of comments posted by defendant on the internet, along with those published by approximately 40 other people, all criticizing the management of plaintiff, a publicly traded company with 59,000 shares outstanding, were related to an issue of public interest; plaintiff became a limited issue public figure by injecting itself into the controversy surrounding the issue by its own internet postings attempting to justify its practices; plaintiff's failure to allege or establish any facts relating to defendant's state of mind prevented it from satisfying the element of actual malice in its defamation action and justified granting defendant's anti-SLAPP motion, requiring the award of attorney fees to defendant, even though plaintiff voluntarily dismissed while the SLAPP motion was pending.
