Ask an UK Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I have a new betting product ready for release.
The sales page is quite controversial and it talks about the recently banned horse racing trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni who was banned for giving his horses steriods. This was widely publicised in the media.
Basically what I want to know is can he take legal action against me for the contents of this page.

He is very rich Multi millionaire.
I am not rich.
All info has been taken off the news websites.
Be careful as you are more likely to run out if money in litigation than he is before it actually gets to court even if ultimately he loses.
Many cases like this are lost simply because the party with the best case runs out of money long before it gets to court.
Be careful of naming him and publishing anything other than things which others have published and links to sites referring to this.
Does that answer the question?
Can I help further? I am happy to answer specific points.
What would happen if I removed Mahmood Al Zarooni name and used a made up one instead with everything else the same?
