D Magazine Ruling Sheds Light On Texas Anti-SLAPP Statute
Attorney Nicholas A.F Sarokhanian discusses the facts of the D Magazine v. Rosenthal case. The Supreme Court of Texas clarified two areas of defamation law: when citing Wikipedia, whether a publication is reasonably capable of a defamatory meaning and parties that win their “anti-SLAPP” motions. Rosenthal is an important decision for litigators, whether practicing First Amendment and defamation law or not. Be careful when citing internet sources and keep in mind that you - or your adversary - may be entitled to recover costs, attorney's fees and expenses.
