Pacific Solutions v. Garry Plaza Office Park A
This is an appeal from an order denying a motion pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 425.16, the anti-SLAPP statute. Pacific Loan Solutions, LLC (Pacific) sued its commercial owners association, Garry Plaza Office Park Association (Garry Plaza or the association), for various causes of action relating to Pacific’s ownership of a unit in the association. Garry Plaza moved to strike the complaint under the anti-SLAPP statute, arguing that it arose from its rights to free speech and petition, specifically, settlement negotiations it had undertaken with Pacific. The trial court disagreed, concluding the complaint arose from the underlying disputes. We agree with the trial court and therefore affirm the order.
