In this suit growing out of a spat between members of the school district’s board, the defendants failed to show that plaintiff’s claims arose out of the school board’s official proceedings or out of statements the defendants made on topics of public interest, so their Anti-SLAPP motion was properly denied.  Plaintiff claimed that defendants had disclosed her personal medical records and threatened her to stop her from challenging the defendants’ improper behavior as board members, but her complaint did not allege that the records were disclosed or threats were made during board meetings.
