HelloAllegations of yelling and being bullish being told to some mutually known people is no where near enough to make a claim of defamation.Unless it is on printed media or on TV, it would not be worth pursuing in court.You can however send a letter to your brother in law, demanding that he apologise for the remarks and have them withdrawn, or face legal action, if he is gullible to believe it sadly. I wish I could give better news.
