Holding: 
Affirmed.
Court properly dismissed malicious prosecution suit company filed against its former employee and her attorneys for filing of three administrative complaints which were all dismissed,. That Plaintiff company conducts business in a highly regulated industry (in-home nursing care) does not transform reputational harm into special injury. Administrative complaints filed were not successive actions but addressed separate and distinct issues, and were filed simultaneously. Inconvenience and expense of discovery demands are not special injury. (McBRIDE and HOWSE, concurring.)
