PHILADELPHIA, April 24, 2014 – People and organizations that have been quieted by ongoing, frivolous lawsuits and mounting legal expenses today urged a state Senate panel to adopt Sen. Larry Farnese’s proposal to curtail the unfair practice.
Farnese’s Senate Bill 1095 would expand Pennsylvania’s limited regulations and give civic organizations, individuals and various groups the power to more easily have their case dismissed or recover attorney fees if they win a so-called Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation, or SLAPP.
