Anti-SLAPP Protections for Hospital Peer Reviews: Questions Linger

– Daily Journal

Manatt Health Care Litigation Partner Barry Landsberg and Appellate Partner Joanna McCallum authored an article for Daily Journal about the California Supreme Court's decision in Bonni v. St. Joseph Health System, which provided missing clarification on the the scope of protection under the anti-SLAPP law for hospital peer review communication and conduct. In the article, the authors noted some issues that remain following the decision, adding, "as with many decisions in a complex evolving subject area, the clarifications provided in the Bonni decision answer some but not all of the remaining questions that arise from physicians' statutory claims of retaliatory peer review against hospitals and physician peer reviewers."
