Anti-SLAPP law overview - appealing an adverse ruling on CCP 425.17 "commercial speech exemption."  In this episode of Vondran Legal Hour "Attorney Steve" explains the difference between a WRIT and an APPEAL.  An appeal may be taken as a matter of right unless the judge denied the motion on grounds that commercial speech was at issue.  In those circumstances, filing a "writ" or petition to review the lower court ruling is the avenue to pursue per case law.  Keep in mind, most writs (approximately 90%) are summarily denied as they can result in piecemeal litigaiton and "cut in line" for cases properly up on appeal.  So there has to be really good grounds to file a writ or they will be denied (i.e. they are "discretionary").
