The Wednesday May 24th ruling by The Minnesota Supreme Court was a major victory for Robert Hill and his team including Eric Magnuson (Robins Kaplan) in Leiendecker v. Asian Women United of Minnesota. Hill pointed out “the ruling was a victory for due process. Minnesota’s anti-SLAPP law placed an unconstitutional burden on plaintiffs.” Hill continued “you have to go to a judge and—without the benefit of discovery—demonstrate that you have clear and convincing evidence that the person you sued has committed a tort. It supplants the usual role of jury and forces the judge to make determinations based on what? Affidavits?”
