    As a former victim of a SLAPP suit and a public interest attorney I am not surprised at this at all.

    SLAPP suits can ruin lives economically and lead people to breakdown.

    I do hope that someone, after reading my book, Charter Schools: History, Politics and Economics, will SLAPP suit me.

    The issue is to SLAPP them back for harassment, defamation, libel, slander, intentional infliction of emotional distress and a dozen more torts.

    But, most people are forced to settle due to economics, time and jobs. And when they do, they usually are forced to sign a Non disclosure document (http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/8579-unless-courts-use-power-to-block-nondisclosure-agreements-companies-like-the-washington-post-will-continue-to-silence-whistleblowers).

    As the public begins to become active this will get worse. We used to have public interest lawyers, but those days seem far and long away.
