LAPA's Litigation Section Presents:
Defendants sued in California state court have an array of complex, overlapping options for how to respond. From general denials to demurrers to special motions to strike, the defendant’s choice of an initial pleading can set the stage for all that comes afterward in a lawsuit. This choice can lead to ultimate success or failure in the suit – or merely delay (which, for some defendants, is in itself a success.) Learn the legal framework for these different types of responses, their advantages and disadvantages, and the technicalities of drafting each.
Presenter Ryan Metheny is the Managing Librarian, Legal Education at LA Law Library. After graduating from UCLA School of Law, Ryan practiced First Amendment law at a public interest firm in Berkeley. He then transitioned to librarianship to focus on his passions of research and education, and earned a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of Washington.
