A statement of economic interests (Form 700) that California public officials must file is a “political work” for purposes of CCP 425.17(d)(2), and thus any claim arising from its creation, dissemination, exhibition, advertisement, or other similar promotion is not subject to CCP 425.17(b) which exempts from CCP 425.16 suits brought in the public interest.  This means that a claim based on the Form 700 may be the subject of a CCP 425.16 motion to strike, and that it is to be judged by the usual two-step analysis under that section.slapp
