I have been publically slandered! Who do I contact to prosecute against this person?

Asked over 1 year ago - Scranton, PA

It was written on facebook and absolutely NOT true. This is my reputation and job at stake. They accused me of something that never happened and also called me a bigot.

    Answered . Report the abuse to FB. Without sustaining a significant monetary loss, a defamation lawsuit would cost thousands more than you would likely recover. Defamation lawyers typically want a 5k retainer just to begin.

    Answered . Report it to Facebook.
    One problem you may encounter is that it is an opinion and not a statement of fact.
    Also, accusing someone of being a bigot is not defamation per- se.
    You will need to prove actual damages.

    Answered . See an atty who specializes in slander cases. There are very specific rules that vary by state. Opinions are usually not enough to sue for.
