Libel, Slander and Defamation Law

Defamation is the issuance of a false statement to another person that causes them to be ridiculed, held in contempt, disrespected among the community, or otherwise suffer a damaged reputation. Libel and slander are subcategories of defamation. Libel is the communication of defamatory statements in a printed or fixed medium, such as a newspaper or publication. Slander is a form of defamation by non-fixed or transitory representation, often through spoken communication.
