In recent years, numerous states have enacted laws to deter so-called “SLAPP” suits—i.e., strategic lawsuits against public participation. Although New York has enacted an anti-SLAPP law, its protections are weak as compared to the anti-SLAPP laws in other states. In their Southern District Civil Practice Roundup, Edward M. Spiro and Christopher B. Harwood discuss 'National Jewish Democratic Council v. Adelson', in which Judge Oetken recently addressed—and rejected—several challenges to one of those expansive anti-SLAPP statutes, the Nevada statute.
The decision came just days before the rule was scheduled to take effect Tuesday, after being finalized by the Trump administration in August.
Prosecutors alleged in an unsealed criminal complaint that Ash tried to cover up financial wrongdoing by Kam Wong, the former president and CEO of Municipal Credit Union. According to the complaint, Ash later wiped text messages from her phone and lied to investigators looking into Wong’s conduct.
