The trial court correctly denied defendant’s Anti-SLAPP motion in this defamation case.  Plaintiff and defendant were each owners of units in a six-unit building governed by an HOA.  Defendant sent his defamatory statements to the building’s other owners.  After an extensive analysis of the content and context of the defamatory messages, the Court concludes they were just part of a private spat and involved no issue of public interest.  The mere fact that the defamatory statements also involved government of the HOA did not make them protected speech.  The HOA in this case was too small to be treated as a public entity.  Not every decision of a private voluntary organization involves issues of public interest.
