Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What loss have you suffered please?Alex
Ok - do you know who put up the post?
Ok - do you have a link to the post?
Got it. Well it wouldnt be facebook you would take action against it would be the poster. But in order to bring a claim for defamation then you need to show that you have suffered 'serious harm'. If you cant show you have suffered serious harm then any claim would fail.
Also you need to issue proceedings in the High Court. As they are specialist proceedings then you would need representation. If the matter is contested you are looking at circa £15,000 in costs.
But you can bring a claim and seek an injunction that it is removed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
You would need to complete form N1:
If you do this yourself the costs are:
1) To issue the claim - £480
2) To hear the claim - £1090
Does that clarify?Alex
