The owner of a Corona del Mar pet shop has withdrawn a harassment claim against an animal rights protester but faces more than $5,000 in legal fees because of a SLAPP motion, according to online court records and the woman’s attorney.
Brooke Bradford filed for a temporary restraining order against Carole Davis on July 22 after a confrontation between the two women inside the I Heart Puppies shop at 2801 East Coast Highway. She later consulted with an attorney, and they decided to drop the case because there had been no other incidents, said the lawyer, Richard Feld.
