Welcome to Defamation Law Radio. My name is Enrico Schaefer, and today we’re going to discuss online defamation, internet libel and host of other issues related to defamation, libel and slander.
We have recently discussed at length the issue of “should I sue for defamation of character?” but there’s an even more threshold issue that you need to consider. And that is, can I sue for internet defamation of character? Before you step into court, you need to assess your matter in detail. These are always fact-specific issues, and the last thing you want to do is spend attorney’s fees pursuing a case that was never a case. Before you take a litigation case to trial, whether it’s defamation or otherwise, you need to start with a strategy document.
