Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Okay , the family is known to be well sew happy is it possible for them to have any legal recourse.
I think I understand what you are saying. You are curious as to whether you saying something about their son smoking crack on the back porch could get you into any legal trouble.
The answer is that if you are in your back yard and you said it out loud to yourself and did not think anyone could hear you, then no, there would be no liability for a potential defamation claim by your neighbor.
