What is Defamation?
Defamation involves making a false and malicious assertion of fact about
a person, either when spoken (slander) or when written (libel). This action
can seriously damage a person’s reputation, causing them to lose
the respect and confidence of others. This can have an adverse impact
on the victim’s future, leaving them and their families exposed
to contempt and ridicule.
Defamation often occurs when people make malicious statements in situations
involving false arrest for criminal conduct, but is also common on the
internet. An anonymous person may post false information or misleading
comments about an individual or their business on social media or review
sites with intent to destroy that person's career. With the amount
of time people spend online researching people and businesses, internet
defamation can have disastrous consequences and warrants immediate legal action.
Expressions of opinion, however, are not considered defamation. For example,
stating that someone is guilty of a crime when they are not can constitute
defamation, but if someone simply expresses negative opinions about a
person, there may not be grounds for a lawsuit. There is a fine line between
free speech and defamation, but when it is crossed, the team at Chuck
Clay & Associates, LLC can take action. Get in touch with our
