The issues in this libel case are (1) whether the Texas Citizens' Participation Act, intended to halt harassment suits targeting free expression, requires the plaintiff's claim to be dismissed and, if Toledo established the elements for her libel suit to get past the law's first hurdle, (2) whether KMBT sufficiently established protection under the fair-report privilege to warrant dismissal on that basis. Toledo, a Port Arthur pediatrician, sued KBMT, a Beaumont television station, for defaming her when it reported on a Texas Medical Board disciplinary action against her. In essence, she alleged the station went beyond the medical board's press release - stating that she was disciplined in part for inappropriate sexual conduct with a patient - by adding to its reports that she was a pediatrician. She claims that damaged her reputation because it suggested the medical board acted because she sexually abused a child. In the final of four broadcasts about the board's action, KBMT added that the patient was an adult (her 60-year-old boyfriend). The trial court denied the station's dismissal motion and the appeals court affirmed.
