Voice mail messages about anticipated litigation are privileged, the Court of Appeal for this district ruled yesterday, throwing out a slander suit under the anti-SLAPP statute.
Writing for the court, Justice Richard Mosk opined that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Hess erred in denying an anti-SLAPP motion attacking Sophia Rohde’s complaint against West Los Angeles attorney Michael Wolf.
The case evolved out of a dispute between Rhode and her brother, George Metsos over distribution of their father’s will, specifically over the sale of property and distribution of the proceeds.
