-The Honorable Judge Patrick Arre Opinion, July 8, 2015
Here it is, exactly 2 months after May 8, 2015 oral argument, Judge Arre's Court Order on Defendants' Motions for Legal Fees and Sanctions.
Along with this Order, the Court wrote a 36-page opinion that is a stunning condemnation of the Bajardis and their litigation, which the Court called a:
"SLAPP suit disguised as a defamation case".
Much more to follow on GA.
This may be a landmark ruling for First Amendment protections in New Jersey, perhaps nationally. One attorney stated, after reading the opinion: "This is big."
