Federal Proposal for Unifying Anti-Slapp Laws

The Citizen Participation Act of 2009 introduces a law that’s designed to end intimidation and harassment lawsuits at a very early stage by those who have brought it in effort to quell public discourse by intimidation through lawsuits at the Federal level for the very first time.

  • Proposed Federal law would essentially be the law of the land that could be utilized in all 50 states to prevent these intimidation lawsuits from occurring.
  • Strategic lawsuits against public participation frustrates free speech
  • Only half the states have enacted anti-SLAPP laws and this federal law would essentially put in place an anti-SLAPP law that would be the law of the land that could be utilized in all 50 states.
