A California appeal court ruled Thursday that Michael Flatley, the self-styled "Lord of the Dance," could proceed with a $100 million extortion suit against an Illinois lawyer. Los Angeles' 2nd District Court of Appeal kept the case alive by upholding an order rejecting a SLAPP suit by D. Dean Mauro, a Waukegan, Ill., attorney who filed a $35 million suit falsely accusing the Irish dancer of raping an ex-stripper in a Las Vegas hotel room.
