Cabral v. Martins

In Cabral v. Martins (2009) 177 Cal.App.4th 471, our attorneys successfully represented attorneys after a former wife brought an action against her former husband and the attorneys who represented him in another action, alleging that they attempted to evade a child support judgment against the former husband through the modification of an estate plan. Our attorneys, on behalf of the former husband’s attorneys, filed a special motion to strike under the anti-SLAPP statute. The trial court granted the motions and awarded attorneys’ fees. In affirming the trial court’s order, the Court of Appeal held that the attorney’s actions in lodging a will with the probate court, defending the husband in litigation, and the will revision itself were protected activity for the purposes of the anti-SLAPP motion.
