Scalzo v. American Express (Cal. Ct. App. - May 28, 2010)

This seems an easy one to me. Notwithstanding a contrary ruling by the trial court below, which granted the defendant's anti-SLAPP motion and awarded attorney's fees to the moving party.

You can't call American Express to get credit card information on someone else's account. Even if you're in litigation with them. That's not covered by the "litigation privilege".

If you want that stuff, we have a legal way for you to get it. It's called a "subpoena." Not a "telephone."
