In an action for misappropriation of trade secrets, trial court orders are affirmed where: 1) the court properly granted plaintiff's anti-SLAPP motion as plaintiff met its burden of demonstrating the acts underlying the cross-complaint arose from protected activity and defendant failed to show a probability of prevailing on the cross-claim; and 2) the trial court did not abuse its discretion in the amount of attorney's fees awarded as the fees incurred were reasonable and not manifestly excessive.
Appeal from orders of the Superior Court of Orange County, Corey S. Cramin, Judge. Affirmed.
