Here's a link to the (terrific!) ESMB thread about the Trial Court's denial of the Anti-SLAPP Motions to Dismiss: http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthre...N-RATHBUN-SUIT&p=913860&viewfull=1#post913860
Quick update - the Court Reporter has filed court records/exhibits with the 3rd Circuit Appeals Court.
Nope, they're not uploaded so we can see 'em. Grrr.
Also, I failed to mention in Post #1 (partially quoted above) that only Mr. Cappuccio was (& is) listed as Counsel for Mrs. Rathbun in this Appeal.
Additional Counsel will probably be added to the docket in a day or two -- I sure hope we see Leslie S. Hyman's name.
