    Our Corporate Attorneys Share a Few Ways to Respond and Prevent Defamation Allegations


    Obviously, the best defense is to be truthful. Tell the truth in all that you do and you will be completely exonerated.

    The burden of the proof relies upon the defendant. Therefore, anything that has created the defamation is actually assumed to be false unless they can prove otherwise.

    Your Honest Opinion Counts

    Your honest opinion defense replaces the fair comment defenses thanks to the Defamation Act of 2013. If the statement in question was your opinion, then there was no malevolent intent on your part. The person must be able to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you lied, not that it was your opinion.

    This replaces qualified privilege. The information may well be false, but if you didn’t know it at the time and you acted on the knowledge that you had. You simply didn’t verify your information.

    Absolute Privilege

    This will allow you freedom of speech. You need not fear being sued for defamation if you are acting on freedom of speech as it is applied to specific circumstances.
