Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR as your previous contributor had to leave.

Something most non attorneys do not understand is that suits just do not start as a class action. Suits must start with one party filing suit. In order for there to be a class action, there have to be 21 or more plaintiffs who have had the same exact thing done to them to put them in an identical position. Here each threat is individual and each defamatory statement is individual, so each suit is individual.

You have grounds to sue him for defamation/libel and also for the threats and harassment, but you must sue him in GA because that is the court that has personal jurisdiction over him. You can sue for not only damages he has caused but also to get an injunction against him to force him to remove the post on his site and also to restrain him from any further posts about you or your business and also from any contact with you or your employees.

As you are a business, you have to be represented by an attorney in GA to sue him and you can get a general litigation attorney in GA at the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.lexmundi.com or http://www.hg.org. Also, your staff member needs to go to court personally and file a restraining order against him for the threats.

These are your rights and options in this situation, based on the facts you have presented.
