If I have been speaking of a former coworker in a negative

Resolved Question:

If I have been speaking of a former coworker in a negative light, but the reason the light is negative is because of her own doing and everything I've said is true and the people I've said it to are also employed by the company and the reason for our conversation about her mistakes and missteps is for the purposes of business pertaining to our work, does she have any ability to sue me? She is threatening me and it seems to be completely stupid. If she wanted to sue me for saying she was the person that caused damage to something and it's a truthful fact that she did in fact cause the damage, wouldn't she have to prove that what I was saying wasn't true in order to sue me for saying it? Just wondering.

the best defense is truth .

as long as you can prove the statements are true
