THANK YOU/JUST TWO QUESTIONS, WHEN YOU mention (the material was published) does just the verbal accusation (from person B the accuser) to another person qualify as published, and the term suffered an injury, well if this leaves a question (even a small one) in the mind of the person that was told the non/truth does this suffice as damage. Yes I will have a lawyer send a letter to attempt to correct this (which I doubt they will respond to) but I would like to know the answers to the two questions mentioned above in the event I have to consider furthur action at that point. Thanks for your help.
yes, if by a template you mean a summary of the total communication I would appreciate this as it would help me to be able to present this to an attorney for some orientation in my initial contact. Thanks
Can I give this some thought, what would be the cost and can you provide me with an example letter or is this asking to much? I would like to fix this easily but I think a letter from a lawyer in our local area may be taken more seriously?
