Are there any legal ramifications for a plaintiff organizing a public protest against the defendant company?

Asked about 1 year ago - San Francisco, CA

This rogue company involved in pump-and-dump and pyramid schemes is going to pitch for contracts in the state where its registration has Forfeited status (non-payment of fees or taxes). We plan to notify the media and organize a protest to warn the public. Is it advisable, any legal issues that might arise? Thank you

    Answered . I don't know whether anyone could answer your specific question, given the broad and vague nature of your post, but maybe this will help: If you tell the press and/or the public nothing but the truth, you won't be defaming anyone, and at least you shouldn't have to worry about losing a defamation suit.

    If you report unauthorized or illegal activity to authorities, again you have nothing to fear, so long as you are truthful.
