Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear of this awful situation.Did you lose your job because of this?What you mean when you say they made you abort your baby?Thanks
I am saddened to hear that.
But you cannot sue him for the abortion or lying to you.
You can sue him for damage to your reputation if he told lies on the Internet about you and that harmed your reputation. But he had to say lies and not just a sickening opinion. You cannot sue someone for being despicable.
If he told actual lies about you then your next step is to retain a lawyer who has to send him a letter demanding a retraction and apology and damages and threatening a lawsuit. You cannot sue for defamation unless this letter is sent first.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
I am sorry about that but you actually cannot sue for defamation for lies to the police. For some reason that is an exception when suing for defamation.
You can sue for harassment and defamation.
The judge decides but when the defamation is libel which is defamation in written form there is a presumption that you suffered damages.
You get justice by hiring a lawyer and suing for defamation.
