We look at corporate power from another angle: SLAPP suits. The term was coined by two University of Denver professors. It stands for "strategic lawsuits against public participation." And they’ve written a book about it. It’s called SLAPPS: Getting Sued for Speaking Out. They join us now from Boulder, Colorado.

GUEST: George Pring is Professor of Law at the University of Denver

Penelope Canan is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Denver.
