Libel and slander laws are designed to protect a person from false written or spoken statements made about that person, resulting in harm to his or her reputation. Under these laws, a person who is considered defamed by the public printing or statement of untrue facts can file a lawsuit against the person(s) responsible for that defamation. Generally, the person filing a defamation lawsuit must prove that the statement was false, but presented as true, and heard or read by a third party, which caused harm to the plaintiff. Once the required burden of proof is met, the plaintiff may collect damages related to the defamatory statements. This section contains a wealth of information about what constitutes defamation and what damages may be available in a defamation lawsuit.
