What can I answer for you in regards ***** ***** in Alabama, or defamation in general? (Slander is verbal defamation, libel is written defamation - they are for the most part two sides of the same coin.)
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Okay. Of course these are unfortunate events. So, what can I answer for you in regards ***** *****? For example: "Can I sue the person spreading these rumors" or "When does the statute of limitations for defamation begin to run," etc?
So in other words, while avoiding suing or threatening to sue, you want to figure out a way to quash this rumor from constantly recurring?
Thank you. With respect, I am not sure how to answer your question because this seems to deal more with student/professor relations and campus politics than a question about legal doctrine. I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other experts. Perhaps another will have a better idea.
Your JustAnswer Account has not been charged for this conversation and your question is back in the queue. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should an expert pick it up, you should be alerted via email and/or SMS (text message) unless you actively disable these features.
There is no need for you to reply at this time as this will "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other experts' access to it.
My apologies for any inconvenience and good luck...
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Do you know who the students were who began this terrible rumor about you? And how was it disseminated? Was it online, was it all verbal from one person to the other? Are you still employed?
