2019 was an unusual year for the California Supreme Court, which issued five Anti-SLAPP cases in less than six months. Some of these cases it had been holding on to for more than two years and every decision was unanimous. And, it still had time to hand down significant decisions on local police powers, third-party beneficiaries in contracts, tax authority of charter cities, and economic loss damages.  John R. Wierzbicki, a California lawyer and Co-Director of the Witkin Legal Institute, covers these cases and what the justices were so eager to instruct us about Anti-SLAPP.
