Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you, I will do everything I can to answer your question. Truth is an absolute defense to claims for defamation, libel, and slander. Thus, so long as you are not making false accusations, the First Amendment protects your right to freedom of speech and you can say anything you want. Furthermore, claims for defamation cannot arise from pure statements of opinion. Any opinion is subjective and personal to the opinion-holder. An opinion is not provably true or false and, thus, cannot form the basis for a defamation suit. I'd shy away from statements you are not confident you can prove. If you stick to opinions (i.e. "What they are doing wrong is sickening") and true statements of fact, an individual in your circumstance would typically have nothing to worry about. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes to you and thank you so much for coming to Just Answer.
thanks for your prompt and detailed reply.
I'm not sure how to attach the letter I'm referring to - would you take a look at it to see if I've opened myself up to litigation?
(by the way - I actually have no assets in my name - having had to declare bankruptcy in 2011 - and my wife & I are not technically married)
thanks so much - after I sent the last email I read the TOS below and realized that you couldn't answer what I've asked.
However - what you did respond with regarding bankruptcy - definitely helped too.
thanks so much
