Defamation (Libel and Slander)
Your name has value. If someone does something to tarnish your reputation or defame your name, you may have a cause of action under defamation, also known as defamation of character.
Words are defamatory when they cause harm to someone's reputation, and when the speaker knew or should have known they were false. When defamatory words are printed, you may have a claim for libel. If the words are spoken, you may have a claim for slander. Defamation lawsuits can be brought against the speaker, the writer, and even the publisher of the written words.
