Legal bullies

A $32 billion energy corporation has filed a massive lawsuit against an Ontario environmentalist named Esther Wrightman.

It’s a SLAPP suit: Strategic litigation against public participation.

It’s not really about legal arguments. It’s about crushing Wrightman with legal bills and burning up her time, so she can’t spend time campaigning against them.

The lawsuit doesn’t allege Wrightman vandalized their property, or trespassed, or anything like that. Their complaint is that, on her homemade website, Wrightman mocked the company’s name. She even had the temerity to publish a satirical version of their logo.

That’s it.
