Week 8: Media Law – Blog 7

State Supreme Court Strikes Down Washington’s Anti-SLAPP Statute

This case specifically explores privacy and with regards to the First Amendment. “Media defendants and other SLAPP victims have therefore lost an important protection against baseless lawsuits targeting their First Amendment activities, at least for now.” The case examines how anti-SLAPP laws violate the right to a jury. I personally believe that it is violating the rights of the SLAPP victims. These victims should have the right to a jury trial especially concerning privacy.
