Jassy Vick Carolan LLP Wins Anti-SLAPP Motion Against Major Law Firm
July 2024 - With briefing and oral argument by Jordyn Ostroff, JVC secured an anti-SLAPP victory on behalf of highly successful attorney Thomas E. Bosworth and his law firm Bosworth Law, LLC. Mr. Bosworth's former employer, Kline & Specter, PC, a large Philadelphia personal injury law firm, sued Mr. Bosworth, claiming that his viral TikTok video commentary about his ongoing legal disputes with Kline & Specter in Pennsylvania courts violated TikTok's terms of service.   The court granted the anti-SLAPP motion in full, concluding that Kline & Specter was not a third-party beneficiary to Mr. Bosworth's agreement with TikTok.   In addition to Ms. Ostroff, JVC's Jean-Paul Jassy and Kevin Vick handled the case.   Media coverage can be found here.
