Randazza Legal Group achieved a great victory for journalists on Tuesday when a judge granted its Anti-SLAPP motion to dismiss in the defamation lawsuit that casino hotel property Sahara Las Vegas filed against a blogger who reported last month that the property would be closing soon. Randazza Legal Group represented the blogger in the case.
Marc Randazza told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the dismissal is “a good decision” that would protect journalists. “I’m not really sure why they brought this in the first place,” he said. “It was very ill-considered.”
