CAR's malicious prosecution suit to proceed

Court rules anti-SLAPP rules don't preclude trial

A malicious prosecution complaint filed by the California Association of Realtors against attorney David Barry and his client can proceed to trial, after a decision denying Barry’s motion to dismiss the case was affirmed by a state appeals court.

CAR filed suit against the San Francisco attorney and his client, former Realtor Arleen Freeman, in September 2005, after successfully defending itself in two antitrust cases.
