I really don't get this anti-SLAPP motion. Everyone concerned must realize how ludicrous it is. What could be the ulterior motive behind it? Maybe just to waste time, to prolong the inevitable, meanwhile hoping that the judge slips on a patch of oil or something and breaks his neck?
Its the same "tech" as in the old story of the jewish rebel condemned to die in the condemned cell with tons of others in like predicament and he shouts out to the jailer "tell the king I can teach his horse to sing in a year". The gaoler goes off and then comes back and says the king is very interested in this, the rebel has one year to teach the horse to sing.
The others who are waiting to die gather round and ask him wtf he thinks he is doing? There is no way to teach a horse to sing, he will never be able to do it and he will be executed anyway. To which the rebel answers "in a year, he may be dead, I may be dead, he may be overthrown, I may escape. Maybe not. and maybe in a year - the horse will suddenly sing!"
