I filed a complaint against a former attorney with the State Bar. I am part of a large case with the State Bar against this person. They have taken his license and believe he will never practice again. This attorney filed a suit in civil court saying I filed a frivolous state bar complaint and claims I owe him $20. I had a pro-bono attorney helping me and she filed an ANTI-Slapp and motion to strike. Judge agreed but also agreed this attorney has enough info to move forward in his claim I owe him $20 plus attorney fees. He just plead guilty in a federal case and is in big trouble with the IRS, federal government, state bar, etc.. I don't have nor want to spend thousands on him in a potential trial when he owes me money. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Defendant contends that Plaintiffs complaint arises out of her protected activities - specifically her complaints to and testimony before the state bar. In opposition. Plaintiff claims that his complaint arises out of the fee agreement, and not the bar complaint. Plaintiffs complaint specifically alleges that Defendant breached their fee agreement by refusing to pay $20 owed and "filing a frivolous bar complaint to challenge its validity." Plaintiff does not dispute that the filing of the bar complaint is a protected activity, but claims that it is only incidental to the gravaman of his complaint.
