Beasley Media Group v. Mishiyev

Beasley Media Group v. Mishiyev, Case No. 2D21-1726 (Fla. 2d DCA 2022). Appellate court granted petition for certiorari finding trial court erred by dismissing radio station’s anti-SLAPP motion without any findings or reasoning. The court reaffirmed the heightened pleading and proof standard to oppose a motion to dismiss under Florida’s anti-SLAPP law, and found “[t]he unelaborated order of dismissal suggests that the trial court denied the motion utilizing an incorrect motion-to-dismiss standard."
