I would need more facts before I can determine if you can sue for defamation. Based on the facts you gave it sounds like you do have a claim.

I have a lot of experience with this and currently am working on two defamation cases.

Feel free to contact me for a free consultation. For this claim I cap my fee at $500 or 20% of any recovery you receive, whichever is greater.
