An odd publication order?

Image result for publishingToday 1/5 certifies this anti-SLAPP opinion for partial publication. What seems odd is that the court excludes from publication "parts II and III," which are the prong 1 and prong 2 analysis sections of the opinion! So what gets published is a brief intro, the background facts, a brief intro to the SLAPP statute (consisting of quotes from other cases), and a short disposition. Hmmm. It's unclear how this alone could be useful precedent in future cases.
[4/9/19 Update: And voila, now the opinion is fully published! see order here.]
