Don Henley opposes motion to dismiss false endorsement/association claims against Chuck DeVore

In the lawsuit by Don Henley against California state Assemblyman and US Senate candidate Chuck DeVore (R) over two song "parodies," Henley has filed his opposition to DeVore's motion to dismiss the complaint's Lanham Act and section 17200 claims.
Opposition to Motion to Dismiss in Henley v. DeVore

The allegations relevant to this motion are that DeVore and his campaign's web guru Justin Hart, by making a video that used the tune to "All She Wants to do is Dance" but replaced the lyrics with attacks on Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), falsely implied that Henley -- a long-time liberal activist who has donated at least $9,000 to Boxer's campaigns -- had endorsed or was affiliated with DeVore and his campaign. Here's my post discussing DeVore's motion.
