Can I sue competitors for talking bad about me?

El Paso, TX |

I have a publishing company and competitors are talking bad about me from just a simple comment to a really bad one like I am a drug dealer and I laundry money for drug Mexican cartels. Do I need some proof from the people that had been telling me this (potential customers).

Yes, you do need proof -- proof that your competitors made disparaging statements of what appear to be fact; proof that they are in fact false statements; and proof that these statements have damages you or your company or could damage you in some concrete way.
