Bodyfelt Mount represents one of the defendants in the case Monique Tyler v. Stanley Whetzel, et al. Plaintiff raised various claims against the attorneys who represented her elderly mother. Defendants each filed special motions to strike under the anti-SLAPP statute, ORS 31.150, which the trial court granted. On appeal, the Court of Appeals granted defendants’ motion to dismiss in part and held the appeal was not justiciable as to the elder abuse claim plaintiff filed on behalf of her mother as trustee. On reconsideration, the Court of Appeals adhered to its earlier determination but granted plaintiff leave to renew her argument and requested plaintiff brief the argument in her Opening Brief.
