.. the Competitive Enterprise Institute , conservative the think tank at the target of the state AGs ire , is being targeted with what is known as a SLAPP suit ..

.. the SLAPP suit is an abuse of power . it is a gross abuse of the legal process , one that is designed to intimidate the the target with the incurrence of enormous legal fees . Thus the justice to be gained is not the objective of the complaint , but the forcing of the target to defend themselves . If it is effective enough , then the target will eventually ” cease fire . ” ..

.. most of the states [but not all] have adopted anti – SLAPP laws in order to help protect the civil rights of SLAPP targets . However , the AGs are targeting the C.E.I. at the federal level . It will be harder for the c.e.i. TO DEFEND itself , but it will be expensive ..
