i did not send it yet. i wanted to see if i should address the restaurant owner, or all the waitstaff, or both. the restaurant owner is out of town until march. It is his waitstaff that is saying those things.
the restaurant owner likes me.
but the waitstaff, all did not like me at all.
So, in a simple answer, the letter was not sent yet. and can you give me an idea what a defamation suit like this is worth, how do i put a dollar amount on it, and is my letter needing any fixing up? (I will be leaving now, and back in about 4 hours. I will see your response then.)
ok, last questions on this
would a lawyer consider this on a percentage fee.?
the advertiser who is suing me, told the restaurant.
The advertiser is taking me to small claims court. this case, i will win, my contract has been tested before in this regard.
I would have to sue the advertiser, who told the restaurant owner that false statement, and then restaurant for repeating this false statement.
My reason for the letter is so they will stop saying it to anyone.'
So, i sue them together? or just the advertiser, just the restaurant
