Paul, hats off to your anti-SLAPP work on this matter. A lot of my 50 years in the State Bar of Texas have been in consumer protection. I gladly defer to your depth of knowledge of the law of freedom of expression. One thing you wrote got my attention: the public interest in diffusing knowledge of corporate wrongdoing. Corporate, yes, but also any natural or artificial person who seeks to enjoy benefits from a consumer transaction. That’s what confers consumer standing under Tex. Bus. & Comm. Code 17.50 et seq, the Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act. For your endeavor maybe the strength of of the protection policy of the statute informs the public interest prong of New York’s statute.
