California's anti-SLAPP law says that a person who brings a suit that violates the law must pay the defendant's legal bills.
The only thing wrong with this is law IMO is their lawyers don't have to share in the burden.
If a lawyer takes a case on a commission (only receives money if the plantif wins money) they should also pay a percent of a judgment if they have a anti-SLAPP judgment against them.
The law says that you can't brings a suit that violates the law, but who would know if it does violate the law better than the lawyer accepting the case? Lets be honest, if no laywer will take the case it is so much more likely that it won't end up in court, and that is the reason for the law, to reduce cases that shouldn't end up in court.
