An anti-SLAPP motion has been filed on behalf of the West Coast director of the Companion Animal Protection Society against the owner of the I Heart Puppies store in Corona del Mar, court records show.
Dave Simon, an attorney for CAPS, said the motion was filed last week under California's anti-SLAPP statue, and has the effect of not only dismissing the lawsuit but also of providing a mandatory attorneys' fees award.
