I agree, you need to copy the exact statements made that you find offensive to your business and contact a business law attorney. You would need to show libel (false statements were made about your business and that this caused damages to your business. Good Luck!

To answer your question, I think you covered the areas of law for this....Consumer's Rights, Defective Products, and Lawsuits...good job.
I would recommend that you contact a personal injury attorney in your local area.
