Defending Against a Defamation Lawsuit

Are you being sued for defamation? To defend against a defamation lawsuit, you must convince judge that, either:

a) You did not make the defamatory statement;

b) The statement is not directed toward the Plaintiff; or

c) The statement meets the requirements of one of the established defences to defamation such as

Fair Comment, Truth/Justification, Absolute Privilege, or Qualified Privilege.

 

If the expression is made in relation to a matter of public interest, the case may be dismissed as a SLAPP suit.

Suing For Defamation

Do you need to sue for defamation? To win a defamation case, you must convince a judge that:

a) the expressed words lowered your reputation in the eyes of a reasonable person;

 

b) the words are published, meaning that they were communicated to at least one person; and

 

c) the words were expressed about you.

Generally, defamation is divided into two categories:

(1) Libel – Someone writes and distributes something defamatory about someone else

(2) Slander – Someone says something defamatory about someone else.
