Your right to share your opinion is threatened by this proposed state law.
Let’s say you don’t like your dinner at a Big Corporate chain restaurant one night. You write a comment on social media. And suddenly, the Big Corporate lawyers serve you with a lawsuit. You’d be shocked, right? After all, a customer should be able to complain.
EFF has long been concerned about these types of lawsuits, called Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, or SLAPPs, as they use legal claims as a pretext to punish individuals exercising their First Amendment rights. That’s why EFF supports efforts to limit or prevent SLAPPs.
