Legal Memo

Green Tree Headlands LLC v. Crawford (2023) 97 Cal.App.5th 1242. This was a SLAPP motion that was brought with respect to a malicious prosecution action. The SLAPP motion was granted with the court finding that the motion prosecution action lacked a probability of success because the underlying lawsuit was not brought without probable cause but reasonably sought to resolve a real property dispute involving an ambiguity in documents. Although a second claim probably not well stated is survived demurrer and seeking redundant relief did nothing material to allow success on the motion prosecution claim.
