what is the statue of limitation for defamation libel ( is it same as character defamation ? ) - can the business we posted on subpoena to see who posted ? - Avon says it is safe to post , does it mean if Avon didn't deny a post and the posting was approved on Avon , then the business can't sue the writer ? - in which ways they can find who the writer is ?
Are you referring to Avvo or Avon?
In California, the statute of limitations for defamation is one year. This means someone would have one year to file a lawsuit for defamation (slander/libel) against you from the time the statement or statements are published.
