Course Summary

Litigate in CA?  If so, you cannot practice without staying abreast of the CA SLAPP and Anti-SLAPP law, especially if you want to avoid malpractice and represent your client effectively.  

And if you aren’t familiar with the latest case law, you can get up-to-date on the fourteen most critical 2012 cases in a mere 90 minutesAnd for extra bonus points, you’ll earn 1.5 CLE units while you’re at it.  That’s the best $69 bucks you’ll spend this month!

Just download and listen to latest Annual SLAPPs case law update.  Or order the CD. Your choice.  Either way, you’ll be glad you did.

The 2012 update is an audio summary and analysis – with practice comments highlighting what you need to watch out for - of the most essential CA SLAPPs cases published last year.  

And there were a few doozies, trust us!  For example, City of Colton is the most significant SLAPP case of 2012.  Why?  Because it squarely conflicts with the well-settled Mann rule, which, in 2004, established plaintiff's prong two burden in mixed cause of action cases.  Wow!  Now what is a litigator to do?

The law is constantly changing and conflicting applications and decisions between districts and the courts are never ending.  This is one area of law in CA that is so confusing to apply that even judges don’t want to teach it (we know, we’ve asked).

That means our 2012 SLAPP case law audio update should be in your library and in your car (where you can listen to it!).  

The 2012 issue was created by attorneys Mark Goldowitz, founder of the California Anti-SLAPP Project, and James Moneer, a recognized expert on California Anti-SLAPP law with the Law Office of James J. Moneer.  

If you want the 2012 update, you'll want the 2013 update as well.  Purchase both and save $20 with our SLAPPs Update Combo Package.
