Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
To whom did you deny it?
So you were emailing other people saying this was a lie?
Does she have any money?
Thanks for the information and the time.
I am sorry but I cannot give you good news then. I’m afraid you are in difficulty here.
She could sue. Accusing a person of lying is a defamation.
It is very expensive to do that though. It is not a cheap affair. It can usually be headed off anyway with a public apology or something similar to that.
I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
You would be liable for costs but she has to pay them first. If you have no money then she cannot recover.
