for the Court of Appeal to reverse the trial court’s order granting motion to strike suit as strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP).
Henry H. Oh was one of the lead attorneys and argued before the Supreme Court of the State of Washington.

The California Court of Appeal affirmed a $1 million attachment based upon Robert J. Odson and John D. Spurling’s briefing
and oral arguments. Their arguments lead to the Court of Appeal establishing standards for attachment while a matter is pending in arbitration.
