Las Vegas Defamation Attorney
We live in a free country. The United States Constitution protects freedom of speech and the Courts have consistently upheld peoples’ right to express their ideas and opinions. However, defamation is not protected.
Defamation is defined as the expression of a false statement meant to harm the reputation of an individual or a group. As such it constitutes a form of personal injury— socially. If you have been targeted by a person and group, if you run or are part of a company or group that is under rhetorical assault by another and you believe that the things they have said about you have crossed a line, then you should act legally against them.
Defamation can hurt your business; it can do tremendous damage to you personally and even go so far as to make it impossible for you to carry on in your profession. While you may respect a person’s right to disagree with the business you are in or the cause you are pursuing you need not respect their right to lie about you in a way that will permanently cripple your ability to carry on in the world.
There is a great deal of chatter and opinion that is exchanged in a variety of media nowadays. It is not that difficult for such smears to become accepted as fact.
