Guen v. Pereira, et al., No. A151569 (Cal. App.) Unpublished opinion of the First California Appellate District, Division Five, November 16, 2018.
Defendant Pereira and others created an online website which accused acupuncturist Guen of inappropriate sexual behavior and of operating a cult. Commentary and rebuttal were not permitted on the website. Defendants succeeded in obtaining dismissal of Guen’s claims under the anti-SLAPP law, as their online statements provided consumer information in a public forum notwithstanding the absence of opportunity for rebuttal.
