Cedillos v. Madigan, No. 05CC07333 (Cal. Super. dismissed Jan. 30, 2006), aff’d, No. G036941 (Cal. App., 4th Dist. June 22, 2007) (unpublished).
Status: Dismissal affirmed.

In 2005, Republican activist and former reserve sheriff’s deputy Ronald Cedillos sued Michael Madigan over comments on his website (www.twistedbadge.com) alleging that Cedillos used a key to damage a Bentley automobile owned by a political rival after they got into a shouting match at a Newport Beach, Cal. restaurant. The trial court dismissed the complaint under California’s anti-SLAPP statute, and the appellate court affirmed.
