Filing Foreign Lawsuit Not Protected By Anti-SLAPP Statute

Chrome Hearts (here), the court held that filing a lawsuit in a foreign country does not constitute protected conduct under the anti-SLAPP statute, Code of Civil Procedure Section 425.16. The constitution protects the right to petition one's own government, said the court, not a foreign government.
