PSD Client Wins Anti-SLAPP Motion and Fee Award in Patent-Related Matter
A Suffolk County judge dismissed counterclaims that the Court determined to constitute SLAPP claims, essentially retaliatory claims based on nothing substantial beyond constitutionally-protected petitioning activity. In the 21-page memorandum of decision, the Court dismissed a breach of contract counterclaim and misrepresentation counterclaims. Previously the Court had denied in its entirety the defendants’ motion to dismiss Dr. Carr’s claims. The case has been expedited at the request of Dr. Carr for trial as early as the fall.
