defamation solicitor

Generally speaking defamation is a false statement about another person which causes that person to suffer harm to their good name and reputation.

Typically, the elements of a case for defamation include:

  1. A false and untrue defamatory statement concerning another.
  2. The unprivileged publication of the statement to a third party (that is, anyone other than the person defamed by the statement).
  3. If the defamatory matter is of public concern, fault amounting at least to negligence on the part of the publisher.
  4. Damage to the defamed party.

Some examples of defamation;

  • Attacks on a person’s professional character or standing
  • Allegations that a person is infected with a sexually transmitted disease
  • Allegations that the person has committed a crime of moral turpitude
