Maryland Intellectual Property Law Attorney: Best Defenses to Defamation Lawsuit

outside-small-2Defamation is making a false statement about a living person such that the statement causes the person ridicule or scorn. Simply put, the best defense is having evidence to support the statement as reported. In other words, “show” that the fact reported is in-fact true. The second best defense, though not always successful, is to show that the grounds for making the statement are reasonable grounds for believing the statement was true.
