Roles Of A Personal Injury Lawyer In Defamation Lawsuits
The first amendment of the United States' constitution provides freedom of speech. However, the freedom of speech is not absolute and thus does not extend to the point of allowing defamation. Defamation refers to the offense of destroying a person's good reputation. Thus, people cannot say or print defamatory statements that injure a person or business's reputation. As such, aggrieved persons can sue for defamation and seek legal redress. However, unlike most torts, defamation is not plaintiff-friendly and usually favors the defendant.
