Hylton v. Frank E. Rogozienski, Inc., No. D053371

By FindLaw Staff on September 24, 2009 12:30 PM

In plaintiff's legal malpractice action against his former attorney seeking damages and rescission of a contingency fee contract, trial court's denial of defendant's anti-SLAPP motion is affirmed as: 1) the trial court correctly ruled that defendant had not met his threshold burden of showing that plaintiff's claims arise from petitioning activity within the purview of the anti-SLAPP statute; and 2) this rendered unnecessary any consideration of defendant's arguments that plaintiff failed to show probable success on the merits.
