  • Defamation and responsibility of media

    Someone recently set up an email address and impersonated me, by sending a letter to a publication. The letter bashed some of my colleagues...It was with much shock that i saw my name attached to the letter in the publication.

    What are my chances of successfully suing this publication. Taking into consideration the fact that anyone can set up an email, don't they have a responsibility to get verbal clarification from me...before publishing the offending article...

    If someone publicly says or writes anything factually untrue and it damages you, you indeed can sue for slander, libel, defamation, interference with business relations etc. -- or at least threaten to do so and give a warning. This is true even if it was by accident.
