I had a defamation case. The other side filed for Dismiss since they believed there was no publication. I lost in the district court, the court of appeals and in the Utah Supreme court. Can I appeal in the Federal court?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?Customer: UtahJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I don't have an attorney and don't want to have. That is why I am asking you.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes. 1. I know from the company (Progressive0 agent they contacted the state agent, but the attorneys of Progressive rejected. Then, I relied on the fact that they sent me the letter via e-mail and my e-mail is insecure. Also, I insist that the e-mail is a form of publication. In my case, the letter made me a criminal, so I don't need to prove damages.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Corporate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
