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.
It depends whether it is true or fair comment.
It doesn't need to be proven by the stater.
in fact, to sue in defamation the statement would have to be disproven by the claimant.
I am sorry but I have to tell you the truth.
Do remember that I can only give you my opinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion. Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting to lose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even though they have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a good chance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer to every legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court.
The ultimate decision comes from a county court judge in a civil case or from the magistrate in a criminal case heard in the magistrates court or the jury in Crown Court.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
I can call in about an hour if you still want that now I've answered.
As to your second question; it can really be simpllfied any more. You would have to disprove it.
1 If yo uare David Sunday then this could be a defamation but you have to prove it was untrue.
2 That isn't defamation
3 That could be defamation but again you have to disprove it.
4 This isn't defamtion. It isn't even about you.
5 That isn't defamation
6 That isn't defamation
7 That could be a defamation
8 That isn't about you.
9 That isn't defamation.
Then you see a defamation specilialist and he writes to him under the protocol.
This will cost about £10 k to fund though if he contests it.
Although a letter might be enough to deter it.
Well, it doesn't disprove anything but it is obviously helpful.
well, because it doesn't.
Firstly, its primed.
Secondly, its probably inadmissible
Thirdly, its unreliable because sometimes kids and adults in fact say what they think people want to hear. Also, with abuse they are not necessarily ready to make disclosures.
So if the child changed her tune, this would be completely ignored
Doesn't really change the points above but its a claim you could bring if you have the funds.
