Plaintiff introduced sufficient evidence to establish a probability of success on his defamation and false light invasion of privacy claims to overcome defendant’s Anti-SLAPP motion. Plaintiff is a world record holder in a number of computer arcade games. Defendant facilitates video game competitions and runs a website with leaderboards showing top scorers on the games. After receiving a complaint from a third party, defendant published on its website a statement that plaintiff had not used unmodified video game hardware to achieve three of his world records, and that as a result, defendant was removing those scores and was banning plaintiff from all of its leaderboards. Plaintiff showed through his own declaration and those of the persons whose equipment he had used in setting the records that the equipment had not been modified and that the modified version defendant thought he had used was not available until several years after he obtained his world record scores. As in Antonovich v. Superior Court (1991) 234 Cal.App.3d 1041, plaintiff proved malice by showing that defendant decided to avoid facts that might show the probable falsity of its statement. Defendant declined to interview eyewitnesses plaintiff offered. Defendant instead relied on sources it knew were biased against plaintiff and videotapes that might have been doctored.
