SLAPP Law Suits: Practice Essentials  

Mar. 20, 2019
Toronto ON

OBA Entertainment, Media & Communications Law PROGRAM | 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM

In 2018, the Court of Appeal for Ontario released six long-awaited decisions interpreting and applying the sections of the Courts of Justice Act commonly referred to as Ontario’s “anti-SLAPP” (Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation) legislation. The Court of Appeal’s decisions confirm that, if used in the right case, the anti-SLAPP law can be a powerful legal tool for dismissing proceedings involving expressions relating to matters of public interest at an early stage – sometimes with significant cost consequences. Whether you practice media, environmental, municipal, or defamation law, or are in politics or have political aspirations, attend this program to learn more about the anti-SLAPP legislation and the Court of Appeal’s decisions interpreting this technical area of law.
