Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael’s Abbey Defense of Free Speech

Represented (as lead trial counsel) the Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael’s Abbey, a silent order of Norbertine priests, when the order was sued for “speaking out” in a Letter to the Editor against the proposed development of the Portola Hill ridgeline surrounding the Abbey; succeeded in having the lawsuit against the Order dismissed under California’s anti-SLAPP law, with fees and costs awarded to the Order.
