Mark C. Walker (Member, El Paso) was recently quoted by Law360 for an article titled “Lawmakers Want to Rein in Texas’ Broad Anti-SLAPP Law.” The law mentioned, called the Texas Citizens Participation Act, includes a loser-pays provision requiring the party who brought the suit to pay attorney fees and sanctions if the defendant gets the lawsuit dismissed under the TCPA.
“It's been applied to far too many circumstances compared to the stated purpose in 2011,” Mark said. “I can't say that lawyers are abusing the statute. I can say the statute was very poorly written, which lends itself to use in very creative ways."
