Anti-SLAPP bill appears to be dead

It appears the bill that would weaken Nevada’s strong anti-SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) law is dead.

Assemblyman Ira Hansen, a former newspaper columnist and chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee, which heard hours of testimony for and against the bill after it unanimously passed the state Senate, has told the Las Vegas newspaper it will not come up for a vote in his committee today, which is the deadline to keep legislation alive in this session.

Good riddance.

    IF the wealthy feel they have been defamed by the less wealthy, then the burden of proof should be on those who make the accusation of defamation.

    This is proper and Wynn was only trying to bring back “the good old days” when he could silence his detractors.
