Voice mail messages regarding anticipated litigation are privileged

The Metropolitan News Enterprise reports

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.
