Next up, an appearance before the Judge 3 days after Christmas Day (I wish the courts would take a real holiday!), to see if he will allow this to go forward. I hope so, because if he dismisses it under the California S.L.A.P.P. provisions, I will have to pay their attorney fees and costs. Or risk more with an an appeal to the Ninth Circuit. Most of all, I want a chance to do a voire dire in jury selection. Wish me luck.
