In Nevada, Senate Bill 444 stands to repeal all the effectiveness of the Nevada Anti-SLAPP Law.
If you’ve read this blog at all in the past two weeks, you know that I have been a small part of the chorus of voices that rose up against this ignoble and unethical bill.
Last Friday, I testified at the Assembly Judiciary Committee hearing on the bill in Carson City. I’m happy to report that, if the mood in the room is any indication, that the Assembly members are siding with the Constitution, Freedom of Expression, Economic Development, and Liberty.
And this is the guy pushing to gut Nevada’s Anti-SLAPP law.

Even better – write to your assembly member
1. Find out who your assembly member is by using this interactive map.
2. Or look here – if you already know.
3. Write them an email or a letter about how you feel toward SB444
4. Even though this bill is through the Senate already, it can’t hurt to send a letter to your Senator too. They are listed here.
Why write to your senator, when the bill already passed the Senate? Because it might pass the Assembly in an amended form. If that happens, it goes back to the Senate. The Senators were not informed when they passed this the first time around. You can help inform them this time.

Reblogged this on Cyber Report and commented:
In 2013, Nevada enacted one of the best anti-SLAPP laws in the nation. Inexplicably, it is now attempting to dismantle it with SB 444, but not without a fight from a key architect of the bill – Marc Randazza (the pride of Glocester).
[…] Nevada’s SLAPP law is under siege and Marc Randazza is leading the fight to preserve it. […]
Watched the whole hearing. Great job. Online poker guy was very good as well.
